    A better Guage control in Flex ?

    Developer504 Level 1
      I want to add a Gauge or Dial control to my app. I have found a couple of good examples online but neither is perfect.

      This one is clever, simple and has a good demo you can download showing a variety of different options.

      This one has nice programmatic controls,

      ...but being written in Flex 1.5 is a bit of an antique. Is there a version of this which is a bit more sophisticated?

      I like both of these but I want the features of both, I want something I can skin, either with an image or programmatically, but I also want to be able to put in my own colors in the pie sections based on my own data (rather than relying 100% on a background image) and put in my own hash-marks etc. And the ability to make a better looking needle would be really nice.

      Finally Ilog Elixir includes a nice enough looking gauge control which does give you a lot of programming features, but I am not 100% comfortable with the potential issues of licensing and access to source code, I don't generally want to use a third party software. I want to do my own Gauge, I would simply like to see some examples to give me some good ideas. Does anyone know of any more?
