Range.SetMinMaxValues(Object, Object) Method

Sets both minimum and maximum values of an axis range.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraCharts

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraCharts.v18.2.dll


public void SetMinMaxValues(
    object minValue,
    object maxValue
Public Sub SetMinMaxValues(
    minValue As Object,
    maxValue As Object


Name Type Description
minValue Object

A Object which specifies the minimum set value. The type of an object depends on the axis scale type.

maxValue Object

A Object which specifies the maximum set value. The type of an object depends on the axis scale type.


Call the SetMinMaxValues method, to specify the visible range of an axis in the measurement units appropriate to the axis scale type.

For more information, refer to Visual Ranges and Whole Ranges .


This example demonstrates how to use the AxisBase.VisualRange property to define the visible range of an axis, and the AxisBase.WholeRange property to define its whole range.
