Hello,

How do you resize the controls? It seems that their size is fixed.

I quit using these because of the no-resize issue. They are also not very customizable. On the other hand, they're free, and if you don't mind the default appearance, they're attractive.

Have you tried using a ViewBox to scale the control?

I did try some transforms to resize or reshape the controls, but just couldn't quite get something that looked acceptable for my needs. Still nice controls, though. I just can't find a way to use them with the colors and sizes I need.

Yeah, I used a layout transform for the resize. I like these controls. It's a pity the work has stopped.

The trouble is that they do exactly what my project needs. When the project get’s some more requirements I’ll do some more work on them

You're certainly under no obligation to continue work on these controls. However, have you considered appealing to those who have used and refined your work to become partners with you in making new releases?

I did give someone update permissions a while ago as he added a new gauge but I never heard back. I will have a look. I know I should at least get them working with Silverlight 4.

David,

It would be great to allow us to bind properties like FontSize and FontFamily.  The only time you can set them is when the control is created.  Not during runtime..

Otherwise, fantastic control!!!  Thanks.
