Unit: SDL_gauge
Class: TScaleGauge
Declaration: property FixedDial: boolean;

The property FixedDial determines whether the index or the dial moves when the value of the gauge is changed. By default, the dial is fixed and the index moves. Setting the property FixedDial to FALSE exchanges the roles of the index and the dial. Now the dial is moved with the index kept at the center position.

Hint: Please note that the Min and Max properties change their meanings if FixedDial is set to FALSE. In this case the difference between Min and Max (or the ratio in the case of a logarithmic scale) is used to determine the visual range of the gauge.
