// Cast your diagram object to an appropriate diagram type,
// to access its axes.
XYDiagram diagram = (XYDiagram)chartControl1.Diagram;

// Add scale breaks to the Y-axis collection, 
// with their Edge1 and Edge2 properties defined in the constructor.
diagram.AxisY.ScaleBreaks.Add(new ScaleBreak("Scale Break 1", 10, 100));
diagram.AxisY.ScaleBreaks.Add(new ScaleBreak("Scale Break 2", 110, 2000));

// Define the scale breaks' options.
diagram.AxisY.ScaleBreakOptions.Style = ScaleBreakStyle.Ragged;
diagram.AxisY.ScaleBreakOptions.SizeInPixels = 20;
diagram.AxisY.ScaleBreakOptions.Color = Color.Turquoise;
