AutoScaleBreaks.Enabled Property

Gets or sets a value indicating whether automatic scale breaks are enabled.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraCharts

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraCharts.v19.2.dll

Declaration

public bool Enabled { get; set; }
Public Property Enabled As Boolean

Property Value

Type Description
Boolean

true if automatic scale breaks are enabled; otherwise, false.

Remarks

When the Enabled property is set to true, you can define the maximum number of automatic scale breaks via the AutoScaleBreaks.MaxCount property.

NOTE

Both automatic and manual scale breaks can co-exist along the same axis. The scale breaks calculation is performed in such a way so that if their ranges interfere, scale breaks are merged.

To access the collection of manual scale breaks, use the Axis.ScaleBreaks property.

For more information, refer to Scale Breaks.

Examples

Use the following code, to enable automatic scale breaks at runtime.

// Cast your diagram object to an appropriate diagram type,
// to access its axes.
XYDiagram diagram = (XYDiagram)chartControl1.Diagram;

// Enable automatic scale breaks creation, 
// and define their maximum number.
diagram.AxisY.AutoScaleBreaks.Enabled = true;
diagram.AxisY.AutoScaleBreaks.MaxCount = 5;

// Define the scale breaks' options, which are common
// for both manual and automatic scale breaks.
diagram.AxisY.ScaleBreakOptions.Style = ScaleBreakStyle.Waved;
diagram.AxisY.ScaleBreakOptions.SizeInPixels = 30;
diagram.AxisY.ScaleBreakOptions.Color = Color.Turquoise;
