User Drawn Analog Meters with no OCXs or APIs
Version Compatibility: Visual Basic 5
Movement is smooth. You can also vary the needle width, color, and needle length. All of the meter attributes are sent to the subroutine with each update, allowing the needle color, (for example)to change as a value increases.
Using the Picture Box's Picture property, you can even load in a different meter face during runtime. Everything is done via the Picture Box's Line Property.
