Assembly: DevExpress.XtraCharts.v23.1.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Charts


public bool WorkdaysOnly { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

true to exclude non-working days from the axis scale; otherwise, false.

Property Paths

You can access this nested property as listed below:

Object Type Path to WorkdaysOnly
.DateTimeScaleOptions .WorkdaysOnly


The WorkdaysOnly property is available for an axis if its scale type is date-time.

WorkdaysOnly = false WorkdaysOnly = true
WorkdaysOnly_false WorkdaysOnly_true

After the WorkdaysOnly property is enabled, the WorkdaysOptions property becomes available and you can specify non-working days, holidays and strict workdays for the axis scale.

You can also use the SkipRangesWithoutPoints property to skip axis ranges that do not have data points.

For more information, refer to the following topic: Data Aggregation.

The following example demonstrates how you can exclude weekends and holidays from the X-axis range:

View Example: Charts - How to exclude weekends and holidays from the axis range


This example demonstates how to exclude non-working days (weekdays and holidays) from an axis range, via the AxisBase.WorkdaysOnly and AxisBase.WorkdaysOptions properties.

using System;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using DevExpress.XtraCharts;
// ...
AxisX axisX = ((XYDiagram)chartControl1.Diagram).AxisX;

// Exclude holidays from the axis scale.
axisX.WorkdaysOnly = true;

// Specify custom working days.
axisX.WorkdaysOptions.Workdays = Weekday.Sunday | Weekday.Monday | Weekday.Tuesday |
    Weekday.Wednesday | Weekday.Thursday | Weekday.Friday;

// Specify holidays
axisX.WorkdaysOptions.Holidays.AddRange(new KnownDate[] {
    new KnownDate("Custom Holiday 1", new DateTime(1994, 3, 2, 0, 0, 0, 0)),
    new KnownDate("Custom Holiday 2", new DateTime(1994, 4, 2, 0, 0, 0, 0))});

// Specify strict working days.
// Thay will have a priority over the holidays specified.
    new KnownDate("Community Work Day", new DateTime(1994, 3, 2, 0, 0, 0, 0)));
