SparklineViewBase Class

The base class for sparkline views.

Namespace: DevExpress.Sparkline

Assembly: DevExpress.Sparkline.v19.2.Core.dll

Declaration

public abstract class SparklineViewBase :
    IXtraSupportShouldSerialize,
    ISparklineInfo
Public MustInherit Class SparklineViewBase
    Implements IXtraSupportShouldSerialize,
               ISparklineInfo

Remarks

Each sparkline view is represented by the SparklineViewBase class descendant. To assign a specific view for a sparkline, set the required view to the RepositoryItemSparklineEdit.View property.

Examples

This example demonstrates how to create a sparkline control, fill it with data, choose the way to represent this data, and customize the sparkline appearance.

To do this, you should create a SparklineEdit object and assign the datasource object to its BaseEdit.EditValue property. Then, you need to set the appropriate view instance to the SparklineEdit.Properties.View property and customize view properties to meet your requirements.

Note that in this sample, the AreaSparklineView class is used to display area sparklines. To display other sparklines types, use the BarSparklineView, LineSparklineView or WinLossSparklineView classes instead.

            SparklineEdit sparkline = new SparklineEdit();
            sparkline.Dock = DockStyle.Fill;

            sparkline.EditValue = CreateData();

            // Create an Area view and assign it to the sparkline.
            AreaSparklineView view = new AreaSparklineView();
            sparkline.Properties.View = view;

            // Customize area appearance.
            view.Color = Color.Aqua;
            view.AreaOpacity = 50;

            // Show markerks.
