StockSeriesView Class

Represents a series view of the Stock type.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraCharts

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraCharts.v19.2.dll

Declaration

public class StockSeriesView :
    FinancialSeriesViewBase
Public Class StockSeriesView
    Inherits FinancialSeriesViewBase

Remarks

The StockSeriesView class provides the functionality of a series view of the stock type within a chart control.

In addition to the common financial view settings inherited from the base FinancialSeriesViewBase class, the StockSeriesView class declares a stock type specific setting that allows you to control which open-close level lines should be displayed within the view (StockSeriesView.ShowOpenClose).

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 stock bar type please see the Stock Chart topic.

Examples

This example demonstrates how to create a ChartControl with a series of the StockSeriesView type, 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.

Note that you can exclude non-working days (weekends and holidays) from an axis range, via the AxisBase.WorkdaysOnly and AxisBase.WorkdaysOptions properties. And, to learn which instruments for financial analysis are available in XtraCharts, refer to Indicators.

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

            // Create a stock series.
            Series series1 = new Series("Series 1", ViewType.Stock);

            // Specify the date-time argument scale type for the series,
            // as it is qualitative, by default.
            series1.ArgumentScaleType = ScaleType.DateTime;

            // Add points to it.
            series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint(new DateTime(2017, 3, 1),
                new object[] { 24.00, 25.00, 25.00, 24.875 }));
