public bool AutoBreaksEnabled { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

true to enable auto-calculated scale breaks; otherwise, false.


A scale break is an area across an axis that is shown in place of a section of the axis’ range. It appears across the original axis as a wavy line. Scale breaks allow you to break off parts of the axis to improve the readability of a chart with large differences between high and low values.

The following example shows how you can use the AutoBreaksEnabled property to display scale breaks within the Chart component:

<DxChart Data="@GetPlanets()">
    <DxChartTitle Text="Planets of the Solar System"></DxChartTitle>
    <DxChartArgumentAxis Type="ChartAxisType.Discrete"></DxChartArgumentAxis>
    <DxChartValueAxis Type="ChartAxisType.Continuous" AutoBreaksEnabled="true">
        <DxChartAxisTitle Text="Mass, kg"></DxChartAxisTitle>
    <DxChartBarSeries ArgumentField="@((Planet s) => s.Name)" ValueField="@((Planet s) => s.Mass)">
        <DxChartLegend Visible="false"></DxChartLegend>

@code {
    List<Planet> GetPlanets() {
        List<Planet> result = new List<Planet>();
        result.Add(new Planet("Mercury", 3.30E23));
        result.Add(new Planet("Venus", 4.87E24)); 
        result.Add(new Planet("Earth", 5.97E24));
        result.Add(new Planet("Mars", 6.42E23)); 
        result.Add(new Planet("Jupiter", 1.90E27));
        result.Add(new Planet("Saturn", 5.68E26));
        result.Add(new Planet("Uranus", 8.68E25)); 
        result.Add(new Planet("Neptune", 1.02E26));
        return result;
    struct Planet {
        public Planet (string name, double mass) { Name = name; Mass = mass; }
        public string Name { get; set; }
        public double Mass { get; set; }

No Breaks vs Autobreaks

The MaxAutoBreakCount property allows you to limit the maximum number of auto-created scale breaks if the AutoBreaksEnabled property value is true.
