Namespace: DevExpress.XtraCharts

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraCharts.v18.2.dll


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

Property Value

Type Description

An integer value, specifying the maximum number of series in the Chart; 0 for no limit. The default is 10.

Property Paths

You can access this nested property as listed below:

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


Use the MaxAllowedSeriesCount 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 MaxAllowedSeriesCount property returns false when trying to get its value.

To obtain both the actual and available number of points in a series (e.g. to notify a user that the Chart has been cut), use the PivotGridSeriesPointsExcludedEventArgs.ActualSeriesPointCount and PivotGridSeriesPointsExcludedEventArgs.AvailableSeriesPointCount properties.

To limit the number of points in a Chart's series, use the PivotGridDataSourceOptions.MaxAllowedPointCountInSeries property.

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