Remarks

In addition to the primary axes, for an XY-Diagram, an unlimited number of secondary axes can be created. Secondary X-axes reside in the collection represented by the SecondaryAxisXCollection class, which can be accessed via the XYDiagram.SecondaryAxesX property.

The properties and methods exposed by the SecondaryAxisXCollection class can be used to perform common collection operations, such as adding new or deleting existing items. Each collection item is represented by a SecondaryAxisX object. Individual secondary X-axes can be accessed using indexer notation.

The collection of secondary Y-axes is represented by the SecondaryAxisYCollection class.

For more information, refer to Primary and Secondary Axes.

Examples

This example demonstrates how to add secondary axes to a chart at runtime.

Use the following API members to add secondary axes:
