Public Property MinorVisible As Boolean

Property Value

Type Description
Boolean

true if the minor grid lines are visible; otherwise, false.

Remarks

Use the MinorVisible property to control whether the minor grid lines of an axis are displayed within a chart control's diagram.

For more information, refer to Grid Lines, Tickmarks and Interlacing.

Examples

This example demonstrates how the grid lines and tickmarks of an axis can be customized at runtime.

To access an axis, you should cast your chart's diagram object to the required diagram type. Then, use the Axis2D.Tickmarks and AxisBase.GridLines properties to access the corresponding elements. To define the number of minor tickmarks (grid lines), use the AxisBase.MinorCount property.

// Cast the chart's diagram to the XYDiagram type, to access its axes.
XYDiagram diagram = (XYDiagram)chartControl1.Diagram;

// Customize the appearance of the axes' tickmarks.
diagram.AxisX.Tickmarks.CrossAxis = true;
diagram.AxisX.Tickmarks.Length = 5;
diagram.AxisX.Tickmarks.Thickness = 2;

diagram.AxisY.Tickmarks.Visible = false;
diagram.AxisY.Tickmarks.MinorVisible = false;

diagram.AxisX.Tickmarks.MinorLength = 3;
diagram.AxisX.Tickmarks.MinorThickness = 1;

diagram.AxisX.MinorCount = 2;
diagram.AxisY.MinorCount = 4;

// Customize the appearance of the axes' grid lines.
diagram.AxisX.GridLines.Visible = false;
diagram.AxisX.GridLines.MinorVisible = false;

diagram.AxisY.GridLines.Visible = true;
diagram.AxisY.GridLines.MinorVisible = true;

diagram.AxisY.GridLines.Color = Color.Red;
diagram.AxisY.GridLines.LineStyle.DashStyle = DashStyle.Solid;
diagram.AxisY.GridLines.LineStyle.Thickness = 2;

diagram.AxisY.GridLines.MinorColor = Color.Blue;
diagram.AxisY.GridLines.MinorLineStyle.DashStyle = DashStyle.Dash;
diagram.AxisY.GridLines.MinorLineStyle.Thickness = 1;
