29 Jan 20247 minutes to read

This section briefly explains about how to include Blazor CircularGauge component in your Blazor Server App and Blazor WebAssembly App using Visual Studio.

The below video demonstrates the customization of Blazor Circular Gauge component.

Prerequisites

Create a new Blazor App in Visual Studio

You can create a Blazor Server App or Blazor WebAssembly App using Visual Studio via Microsoft Templates or the Syncfusion Blazor Extension.

Install Syncfusion Blazor CircularGauge and Themes NuGet in the App

To add Blazor CircularGauge component in the app, open the NuGet package manager in Visual Studio (Tools → NuGet Package Manager → Manage NuGet Packages for Solution), search and install Syncfusion.Blazor.CircularGauge and Syncfusion.Blazor.Themes. Alternatively, you can utilize the following package manager command to achieve the same.

Install-Package Syncfusion.Blazor.CircularGauge -Version 24.2.3
Install-Package Syncfusion.Blazor.Themes -Version 24.2.3

NOTE

Syncfusion Blazor components are available in nuget.org. Refer to NuGet packages topic for available NuGet packages list with component details.

Register Syncfusion Blazor Service

Open ~/_Imports.razor file and import the Syncfusion.Blazor and Syncfusion.Blazor.CircularGauge namespace.

@using Syncfusion.Blazor
@using Syncfusion.Blazor.CircularGauge

Now, register the Syncfusion Blazor Service in the ~/Program.cs file of your Blazor Server App or Blazor WebAssembly App.

using Microsoft.AspNetCore.Components;
using Microsoft.AspNetCore.Components.Web;
using Syncfusion.Blazor;

var builder = WebApplication.CreateBuilder(args);

// Add services to the container.
builder.Services.AddRazorPages();
builder.Services.AddServerSideBlazor();
builder.Services.AddSyncfusionBlazor();

var app = builder.Build();
....
using Microsoft.AspNetCore.Components.Web;
using Microsoft.AspNetCore.Components.WebAssembly.Hosting;
using Syncfusion.Blazor;

var builder = WebAssemblyHostBuilder.CreateDefault(args);
builder.RootComponents.Add<App>("#app");
builder.RootComponents.Add<HeadOutlet>("head::after");

builder.Services.AddScoped(sp => new HttpClient { BaseAddress = new Uri(builder.HostEnvironment.BaseAddress) });

builder.Services.AddSyncfusionBlazor();
await builder.Build().RunAsync();
....

Add stylesheet and script resources

The theme stylesheet and script can be accessed from NuGet through Static Web Assets. Reference the stylesheet and script in the <head> of the main page as follows:

  • For .NET 6 Blazor Server app, include it in ~/Pages/_Layout.cshtml file.

  • For .NET 7 Blazor Server app, include it in the ~/Pages/_Host.cshtml file.

  • For Blazor WebAssembly app, include it in the ~/index.html file.

<head>
    ....
    <link href="_content/Syncfusion.Blazor.Themes/bootstrap5.css" rel="stylesheet" />
    <script src="_content/Syncfusion.Blazor.Core/scripts/syncfusion-blazor.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
</head>

NOTE

Check out the Blazor Themes topic to discover various methods (Static Web Assets, CDN, and CRG) for referencing themes in your Blazor application. Also, check out the Adding Script Reference topic to learn different approaches for adding script references in your Blazor application.

Add Blazor CircularGauge component

Add the Syncfusion Blazor CircularGauge component in the ~/Pages/Index.razor file.

<SfCircularGauge>
    <CircularGaugeAxes>
        <CircularGaugeAxis>
            <CircularGaugePointers>
                <CircularGaugePointer></CircularGaugePointer>
            </CircularGaugePointers>
        </CircularGaugeAxis>
    </CircularGaugeAxes>
</SfCircularGauge>
  • Press Ctrl+F5 (Windows) or +F5 (macOS) to launch the application. This will render the Syncfusion Blazor CircularGauge component in your default web browser.

Set pointer value

Pointers are used to indicate values on an axis. You can change the pointer value using the Value property in CircularGaugePointer.

NOTE

In CircularGauge, you can configure multiple axes. On each axis, you can add a pointer.

<SfCircularGauge>
    <CircularGaugeAxes>
        <CircularGaugeAxis>
            <CircularGaugePointers>
                <CircularGaugePointer Value="35">
                </CircularGaugePointer>
            </CircularGaugePointers>
        </CircularGaugeAxis>
    </CircularGaugeAxes>
</SfCircularGauge>

Adding title for Blazor CircularGauge

Title can be added to the CircularGauge to provide a quick information to the users about the context of the rendered CircularGauge. You can add a title using Title property in SfCircularGauge.

<SfCircularGauge Title="Speedometer">
    <CircularGaugeTitleStyle Color="blue" FontWeight="bold" Size="25"></CircularGaugeTitleStyle>
    <CircularGaugeAxes>
        <CircularGaugeAxis>
            <CircularGaugePointers>
                <CircularGaugePointer>
                </CircularGaugePointer>
            </CircularGaugePointers>
        </CircularGaugeAxis>
    </CircularGaugeAxes>
</SfCircularGauge>

Adding ranges in the Blazor CircularGauge

Range is used to specify a group of scale values in the gauge. You can set the range start and end using Start and End properties in the CircularGaugeRange.

<SfCircularGauge>
    <CircularGaugeAxes>
        <CircularGaugeAxis>
            <CircularGaugeRanges>
                <CircularGaugeRange Start="40" End="80">
                </CircularGaugeRange>
            </CircularGaugeRanges>
        </CircularGaugeAxis>
    </CircularGaugeAxes>
</SfCircularGauge>
