Getting Started

Angular Version Compatibility Table

Angular Version ngx-gauge Version
6.0 -
7.0 -
8.0 1.0.0-beta.12
9.0 1.1.0
10.x.x 2.0.0
11.x.x 3.0.0

Step 1: Install npm module

For latest version use the command:

npm install ngx-gauge

For a specific version for an older Angular version as per Compatibility table above, use command:

npm install --save ngx-gauge@<version>

Step 2: Import the NgxGaugeModule

import { NgxGaugeModule } from 'ngx-gauge';

@NgModule({
    ...
    imports: [NgxGaugeModule],
    ...
})
export class AppModule { }

Be sure to import NgxGaugeModule after Angular's BrowserModule, as the import order matters for NgModules.

Step 3: Use gauge component in HTML

NgxGaugeModule provides a <ngx-gauge> component which can be used in any angular template to render a gauge. It's configuration properties can be bind to a typescript variable as shown below:

import { Component } from '@angular/core';

@Component({
    selector: 'app-component',
    templateUrl: 'app.html'
})
export class AppComponent {
    
    gaugeType = "semi";
    gaugeValue = 28.3;
    gaugeLabel = "Speed";
    gaugeAppendText = "km/hr";
}
<ngx-gauge [type]="gaugeType" 
           [value]="gaugeValue" 
           [label]="gaugeLabel"  
           [append]="gaugeAppendText">
</ngx-gauge>

Checkout the extensive list of configuration properites given below and try them to acheive your desired customization. In case you face any problem, then raise an issue here.

Configuration Properties

There are plenty of configurable properties available to tune the gauge as per your needs.

Name Description Required Default value Possible values
size Specifies the size of the canvas in which Gauge will be drawn. It is used as width and height both. No 200 Positive Integer
type Specifies the gauge's type. No "full" "full", "semi", "arch"
min Specifies the minimum numeric value for gauge's scale. No 0 Any numeric value
max Specified the maximum numeric value for gauge's scale. No 100 Any numeric value
value Specifies the current value of the Gauge in the range specified by min and max. It is a required attribute. Yes undefined Any numeric value
cap The style of line ending at the gauge's end. No "butt" "round", "butt"
thick Specified the thickness of the gauge's bar. No 6 Any Positive Integer
label Specifies the text to display below the Gauge's reading. No undefined Any String
foregroundColor Specifies the foreground color of the Gauge's scale. No rgba(0, 150, 136, 1) Any color value string
backgroundColor Specifies the background color of the Gauge's scale. No rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.1) Any color value string
append Specifies a string appended to the Gauge's reading. For example "%" most commonly used. No undefined Any string
prepend Specifies a string prepended to the Gauge's reading. For example "quot; in case of financial data displayed in Gauge. No undefined Any String
duration Specifies the duration (in milliseconds) of the Gauge's animation No 1500 Positive Integer
thresholds Specifies an object of threshold values at which the gauge's color changes. Checkout an example here. No none {}
animate toggles the gauge animation. No true boolean
aria-label Specifies the label used by screen readers No undefined Any String
aria-labelledby Specifies the ID of any external element to be used as label by screen readers No null Any ID String

Configure Threshold Color Ranges

You can customize the colors of the gauge based on the current value being shown. In order to show different colors when gauge crosses certain value, use property thresholds. It takes an object with the threshold value as key and an object with color property as value. For example:

@Component({ ... })
export class AppComponent {
    ...

    thresholdConfig = {
        '0': {color: 'green'},
        '40': {color: 'orange'},
        '75.5': {color: 'red'}
    };

    ...
}
<ngx-gauge ...  [thresholds]="thresholdConfig"></ngx-gauge>

The keys in the threshold object signifies the minimum value at which the color will be applied. For instance, if the gauge's current value is 53.2, then orange color will be applied because after point 40 every value will be displayed as orange, until next threshold is encountered. In this example 75.5 is the next threshold.

Custom Directives for display text

Sometimes setting a property value on <ngx-gauge> does not solve your purpose. You may want to add custom HTML for displaying value,append, prepend and label texts. In order to provide custom templates for these properties display following directives can be used.

<ngx-gauge [value]="currentValue">
    <ngx-gauge-append>
        <!-- custom append text or HTML goes here -->
    </ngx-gauge-append>
    <ngx-gauge-label>
        <!-- custom label text or HTML goes here -->
    </ngx-gauge-label>
    <ngx-gauge-prepend>
        <!-- custom prepend text or HTML goes here -->
    </ngx-gauge-prepend>
    <ngx-gauge-value>
        {{ currentValue * Math.PI | number }}
    </ngx-gauge-value>
</ngx-gauge>

Note that value attribute is still required on <ngx-gauge> even when you are providing custom template using <ngx-gauge-value>. Because value attribute is responsible for calculating the gauge's drawing on a scale.
