Bar graph im gauge view?

The gauge view is great but needs a lot of space due to the clock representation.
Would it be possible to have a bar graph option as well?

Not sure how much work that would be though ....

There is an open item already for customised gauges (such as right click with various options). I got stuck with picking up a right click on the blank area of the windows within MFC at this time

The intention this will allow resizable custom guages to replace the use of the 'clock ones'

Thanks,
I like the clocks but you need a large screen.

I hope you're using some kind of API/library for this?
(it would be a nightmare to code that from scratch)

Those are coded from scatch using general maths for scaling and drawing the circles. Yes it is a bit of pain. If there are some MFC classes out there which can be used for the updates I will consider those
