#1,160 – Adding a Text Label to the Circular Progress Control

In an earlier post, we created a custom circular progress control, deriving from a Shape element.  Below, we add a text element in the middle of the progress arc to indicate % complete.  We could have also done this by building the text into the control itself.  But the approach shown below is an example of combining the progress control with a user-defined text label.

    <StackPanel>
        <Grid>
            <loc:CircularProgress
                x:Name="circProg"
                Value="{Binding PctComplete}"
                Height="100" Width="100" Margin="5"
                HorizontalAlignment="Center"/>
            <TextBlock
                HorizontalAlignment="Center"
                VerticalAlignment="Center"
                FontSize="36" Foreground="DarkGray"
                Text="{Binding ElementName=circProg, Path=Value}" />
        </Grid>
        <ProgressBar x:Name="prog2" Maximum="100"
                     Value="{Binding PctComplete}"
                     Height="25" Margin="10"/>
        <Button Content="Start Timer" Click="Button_Click"
                HorizontalAlignment="Center"
                Padding="12,7"/>
    </StackPanel>
