Rotary Wheel User Control

This is a .NET rotary wheel/spinner/knob/wheel-of-fortune-thingy user control built using C#/XAML. The user control targets Windows 10 apps but can be used across all .NET applications. Here's a stylized version that was used in @HeavenFresh's app.

stylized version

Given the labels of each slice, the user control will automatically create the necessary number of slices. Both touch and mouse events are supported, and when the user finishes manipulation of the wheel, the wheel will animate back to the center of the selected slice.

Out-of-the-box, what you'll get is something more along the lines of:

basic version

Installation

To install, run the following command in the Package Manager Console

PM> Install-Package RotaryWheelUserControl

Usage

Configurations:

Property
BackgroundColor color of starting slice with each subsequent slice being a lighter version
ForegroundColor color of labels
Size size of the rotary wheel
HideLabels boolean value denoting whether to show or hide the labels
Slices array of strings of the value/label for each slice
SelectedItemValue read-only value denoting the currently selected slice
Callback
PropertyChanged event that is raised when the SelectedItemValue changes

We can instantiate a rotary wheel like so:

XAML:

   <userControl:RotaryWheel
		x:Name="rotaryWheelDemo" 
		Size="200"
		BackgroundColor="Purple" 
		ForegroundColor="White" />

C# (code-behind):

	rotaryWheelDemo.Slices = new[]
	{
		"Auto",
		"Quiet",
		"Low",
		"Medium",
		"High",
	};

	rotaryWheel.PropertyChanged += <some_event_handler>;
