Strip.ShowAxisLabel Property

Gets or sets a value that specifies whether the strip is labeled within its axis.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraCharts

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraCharts.v21.2.dll


public bool ShowAxisLabel { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

true if the strip’s axis label is displayed; otherwise, false.


Use the ShowAxisLabel property to control whether a specific axis label is automatically created and displayed for the strip within its corresponding axis. The text for the strip’s axis label can be specified by the Strip.AxisLabelText property.

Note that strip labels can’t be displayed within an axis simultaneously with the default axis labels (which are generated automatically based upon the axis scale of the values of series data points) - if the axis label of any strip is set to visible, the default labels are hidden. Strip labels can only be displayed along with custom labels within an axis.

For more information, refer to Strips.


This example demonstrates how strips can be created and customized at runtime.

Since strips reside in an appropriate axis collection, you should first cast your diagram object to the required diagram’s type. Then, you can access the collection via the Axis2D.Strips property.

// Cast the chart's diagram to the XYDiagram type, to access its axes.
XYDiagram diagram = (XYDiagram)chartControl1.Diagram;

// Create a strip with its maximum and minimum axis value defined.
diagram.AxisY.Strips.Add(new Strip("Strip 1", 5, 15));

// Customize the strip's behavior.
diagram.AxisY.Strips[0].Visible = true;
diagram.AxisY.Strips[0].ShowAxisLabel = true;
diagram.AxisY.Strips[0].AxisLabelText = "My Range";
diagram.AxisY.Strips[0].ShowInLegend = true;
diagram.AxisY.Strips[0].LegendText = "A Sample Strip";

// Customize the strip's appearance.
diagram.AxisY.Strips[0].Color = Color.CornflowerBlue;
diagram.AxisY.Strips[0].FillStyle.FillMode = FillMode.Empty;
