Hello everyone,
I would like to know if there is a method to improve the gui used in c#, or if there is a software to design gui tools, For example if i want to design a dial that change its progress according to some value like the dial shown in this image[^]

Thanks in advance,

There are lots and lots of companies who makes tools like that. Just search the web for some of them.

First of all, the sample image of the UI looks like total trash. Why helping you if you dream of manufacturing trash?

i'm sry the image is not that good, but, the purpose is not to make copy of the sample image, i want to learn the way to do it, and then give it a good look,

OK, here is what I mean: in programmer's of hardware controls, there is one common sickness: making "beautiful" (in fact ugly) complicated controls mimicking analog devices. But this is not what customers wants. Digital output (but not input) is way more convenient, more readable. People won't need your analog-looking scales. And they look ugly, not even anti-aliased...

Have a look here: A fast and performing gauge[^] - it's pretty much what you want already, so most of the work is done for you but the code is ther in case you need a change.
