SplineArea3DSeriesView Class

Represents a series view of the 3D Spline Area type.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraCharts

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraCharts.v24.1.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Charts


public class SplineArea3DSeriesView :


The SplineArea3DSeriesView class provides the functionality of a series view of the 3D Spline Area type within a chart control.

In addition to the common view settings inherited from the base Area3DSeriesView class, the SplineArea3DSeriesView class declares the spline type specific settings, which allow you to define the style of the spline curve (SplineArea3DSeriesView.LineTensionPercent).

Note that a particular view type can be defined for a series via its SeriesBase.View property.

For more information on series views of the 3D Spline Area type, refer to the Spline Area Chart topic.


The following example demonstrates how to create a ChartControl with a series of the SplineArea3DSeriesView type, set its general properties, and add this chart to a form at runtime. Before proceeding with this example, first create a Windows Forms Application in Visual Studio, and include all necessary assemblies to the References list of your project.

Then, add the following code to the Form.Load event handler.

using System;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using DevExpress.XtraCharts;
// ...

private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) {
    // Create a new chart.
    ChartControl SplineAreaChart3D = new ChartControl();

    // Add a spline area series to it.
    Series series1 = new Series("Series 1", ViewType.SplineArea3D);

    // Add points to the series.
    series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("A", 12));
    series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("B", 4));
    series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("C", 17));
    series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("D", 7));
    series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("E", 12));
    series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("F", 4));
    series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("G", 17));
    series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("H", 7));

    // Add both series to the chart.

    // Access labels of the series.
    ((Area3DSeriesLabel)series1.Label).Visible = true;
    ((Area3DSeriesLabel)series1.Label).ResolveOverlappingMode =

    // Access another series options.
    series1.PointOptions.PointView = PointView.ArgumentAndValues;

    // Customize the view-type-specific properties of the series.
    SplineArea3DSeriesView myView = (SplineArea3DSeriesView)series1.View;
    myView.AreaWidth = 4;
    myView.LineTensionPercent = 50;

    // Access the diagram's options.
    ((XYDiagram3D)SplineAreaChart3D.Diagram).ZoomPercent = 110;
    ((XYDiagram3D)SplineAreaChart3D.Diagram).VerticalScrollPercent = 10;

    // Add a title to the chart and hide the legend.
    ChartTitle chartTitle1 = new ChartTitle();
    chartTitle1.Text = "3D Spline Area Chart";
    SplineAreaChart3D.Legend.Visible = false;

    // Add the chart to the form.
    SplineAreaChart3D.Dock = DockStyle.Fill;
