PointView Enum

Lists the values used to specify how data point information is represented within series labels.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraCharts

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraCharts.v20.1.dll

Declaration

[ResourceFinder(typeof(XtraChartsResFinder), "PropertyNamesRes")]
public enum PointView
<ResourceFinder(GetType(XtraChartsResFinder), "PropertyNamesRes")>
Public Enum PointView

Members

Name Description
Argument

Specifies that series labels identify series points by their argument values (which can be taken from the SeriesPoint.Argument property).

PointView_Argument.png

Values

Specifies that series labels identify data points by their values (which can be taken from the SeriesPoint.Values property).

PointView_Values.png

ArgumentAndValues

Specifies that series labels reflect both arguments and values for the corresponding series points. In this case, the resulting label content is composed of the SeriesPoint.Argument and SeriesPoint.Values property values, based on the specified PointOptions.Pattern.

SeriesName

Specifies that series labels identify series points by the name of their series (which can be taken from the Series.Name property).

Undefined

This means the PointOptions.PointView property value is ignored, and the text of series labels is determined by the PointOptions.Pattern property value.

The following properties accept/return PointView values:

Remarks

The values listed by the PointView enumeration are used to set the PointOptions.PointView property.

Examples

The following example demonstrates how to create a ChartControl with a series of the PieSeriesView type, and add this chart to a form at runtime.

Note that this series view type is associated with the SimpleDiagram type, and you should cast your diagram object to this type, in order to access its specific options.
