     Allows you to create your own analog meters using MSpaint. These images become the meter face. Use the (analogmeter) subroutine to draw the hand (needle) automatically scaling the needle to the size of the Picture Box and position the needle to the engineering unit (value) you wish to display. Movement is smooth. You can also vary the needle width, color, and needle length. All of the meter attributes are sent to the subroutine with each update, allowing the needle color, (for example) to change as a value increases. Using the Picture1.Picture property, you can even load in a different meter face during runtime ... the meter needle and the meter face to not conflict with each other. No special ocx's or api's needed. All done with Picture1.Line property.

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
