Property Value

Type Description

A Object that specifies the minimum value to display on an axis.


Use the MinValue property to specify or obtain the minimum value to display on an axis.

Note that the MinValue and AxisRange.Auto properties are interdependent: changing one property will reset the other property.


Dealing with Qualitative or DateTime scale types, it may be required to determine the minimum value more precisely than allowed by these scale types. For example, for an axis whose AxisBase.DateTimeMeasureUnit property is set to Year, it may be required to restrict its range by a Month. For this, you can use the AxisRange.MinValueInternal property, which stores the internal, numeric representation of Qualitative and DateTime values.

For more information, refer to Visual Ranges and Whole Ranges .


This example demonstrates how the appearance of a pane's scroll bar can be customized.

Note that for a pane, it's possible to individually adjust the position and visibility of its X and Y-axis' scroll bars.

ScrollBarOptions scrollBarOptions = diagram.DefaultPane.ScrollBarOptions;

scrollBarOptions.BackColor = Color.White;
scrollBarOptions.BarColor = Color.Blue;
scrollBarOptions.BorderColor = Color.Navy;
scrollBarOptions.BarThickness = 15;
scrollBarOptions.XAxisScrollBarAlignment = ScrollBarAlignment.Far;
scrollBarOptions.XAxisScrollBarVisible = true;
