Hello experts I am looking for a simple guage control, similiar to an rpm guage you would see in car, that I can use with visual studio 2003.  The guage's range of values would need to be customizable. I will be displaying decimal values between 0 and 1.  Any ideas where I can find a control or even make one.

Those are some pretty cool guages.  I got the sample application working but I am having problems trying to load one of the controls on my vb.net application, any ideas?

Tell me honestly can i suggest anything based on that statement? What problem are you facing? Does it give you any compiler errors? What are those errors? Is the control compiled into DLL?

If you have C# installed, start a new DLL project, and add the AGuage.cs and AGuage.Designer.cs files to it and compile it into a dll. If that does not help, convert the source code in the files using the following online tool and add to your project
