Limits the number of incoming points in a Chart's series that are auto-created, based on the associated Pivot Grid.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraCharts

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraCharts.v18.2.dll


public int MaxAllowedPointCountInSeries { get; set; }
Public Property MaxAllowedPointCountInSeries As Integer

Property Value

Type Description

An integer value, specifying the maximum number of points in the Chart's series.

Property Paths

You can access this nested property as listed below:

Library Object Type Path to MaxAllowedPointCountInSeries
WinForms Controls ChartControl
ASP.NET Controls and MVC Extensions ChartControlSettings
Reporting XRChart


Use the MaxAllowedPointCountInSeries property, to avoid an untidy chart when too much data is obtained from its associated Pivot Grid.


If the Chart's data source is not a Pivot Grid, trying to set this property causes a NotSupportedException, and the MaxAllowedPointCountInSeries property returns false, when trying to get its value.

To obtain both the actual and available number of series (e.g. to notify a user that the Chart has been cut), use the PivotGridSeriesExcludedEventArgs.ActualSeriesCount and PivotGridSeriesExcludedEventArgs.AvailableSeriesCount properties.

To limit the number of series, use the PivotGridDataSourceOptions.MaxAllowedSeriesCount property.

For more information, see Pivot Charting (Integration with a Pivot Grid Control).
