I was looking for some “analog” meters to use in my display project. The only thing in the Symbol Factory is an image called Tick Marks. That won’t cut it. So, I decided to start making some of my own analog/gauge meters. The first one I made was an analog clock (since that would cover ticks for 360 degrees) and some sample needles (pointers).
Use the Rotate Attribute for the needles.
The Rotational Anchor point is as follows:
Hour Hand Hor = 0, Vert =23
Minute Hand Hor = 0, Vert =33
Second Hand Hor = 0, Vert =35
I have included all the .png images needed to build one. Use the Edit>Paste from File>Import PNG… I will eventually make a bunch of different styles/sizes and just export the window and post it if anyone wants them. Also included is a rotational effect image that can be used to show how fast or slow you are communicating to a control engine (using some code and the Rotate Attribute). Let me know what you think.
