Property Value

Type Description

A ScaleBreakStyle object, which represents the scale break edge style.


Note that the Style property simultaneously affects all the scale breaks available for an axis (both automatic and manual).

In addition, to adjust scale breaks appearance, you can use the following properties: ScaleBreakOptions.SizeInPixels and ScaleBreakOptions.Color.

For more information, refer to Scale Breaks.


This example demonstrates how scale breaks can be created within an axis, and customized at runtime.

// 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;
