Detailed Description

Gauge

The Gauge control displays a value within some range along a horizontal or vertical axis. It can be thought of as an extension of ProgressBar, providing tickmarks and labels to provide a visual measurement of the progress.

The minimum and maximum values displayable by the gauge can be set with the minimumValue and maximumValue properties.

Example:

Gauge {
    minimumValue: 0
    value: 50
    maximumValue: 100
    anchors.centerIn: parent
}

You can create a custom appearance for a Gauge by assigning a GaugeStyle.
