Introduction and Installation

Introduction

Dundas Gauge for .NET 1.5 is the latest version of Dundas’s Gauge component for .NET. It comes in two flavours--for Windows Forms and for ASP.NET. I had the occasion to review them both and would like to share my impressions with you.

Installation

Evaluation copies for both Windows Forms and ASP.NET versions of the component can be downloaded from the website of the vendor. Registration is required, and the username and password to be used during the installation is emailed to you along with the instructions, so be sure to provide a valid email address while registering.

The installation process itself is smooth and presents no hassles, with a standard Windows installer taking one through the steps. The only variation is a screen where the username and password (emailed to you once you have registered on the Dundas site) need to be entered.

Loading up for the First Time

If you now check your VS.NET Toolbox, you might be surprised to find that instead of the half-dozen or so Dundas gauge controls that you might have expected to see, there is only one new control. The reason for this is readily apparent. This control (named the Gauge Container control) acts as a container in which you can put multiple gauges. These gauges can then be configured using the Gauge Wizard or the property pages of the control.
