These two text nodes get the maximum and minimum possible value set. Then on these two some pythagoras is applied and in that way one can determine the scale factor so that the value will never be rendered outside of the circle. Then the actual to-be-rendered value can be placed into the Text node and positioned in the centre of the circle.

This unfortunately is not yet the case when the skin is instantiated. This means that if I do not used the layoutChildren, the initial presentation is totally off, untill the first min/max/value is set.

I did just now and tried calling that and layout when the skin is being instantiated, but apparently things are not setup right yet.

Maybe layoutChildren with bound checking is the way to go.
