With XtraCharts, you have a capability to replace sections of an axis' range by scale breaks, either manually or automatically created, or both.

Besides the capability to manually add scale breaks items (that are represented by the ScaleBreak class), you can force your chart to automatically insert scale breaks along axes, if the chart's data suggests their use, using the options of the AutoScaleBreaks class.

To do this, you should set the AutoScaleBreaks.Enabled property to true, and define the maximum number of automatic scale breaks allowed via the AutoScaleBreaks.MaxCount property.


The common appearance settings of scale breaks (both manual and automatic) are contained in the ScaleBreakOptions class.

For more information, refer to Scale Breaks.
