I’m just about to embark on my first Xamarin forms project and know from the offset that I’ll need to create a couple of custom controls at least. Before I delve too deeply, I just wanted to make sure what I’m hoping to do is possible.
I want to create a control that represents a gauge, much like my garmin watch does with its heart rate monitor. Think along the lines of:
Is it possible to do this with a custom control in Xamarin forms? I’ll need to set a min value, max and current value, so its not a million miles away from a progress bar, I’m just manipulating the rendering of the value.
I’m just reading Charles Petzolds excellent free Xamaring Forms eBook but in the meantime can anyone point me in the right direction on where to start on this sort of thing just to do a bit of preliminary reading?
