Public Property MinorThickness As Integer

Property Value

Type Description
Int32

An integer value which specifies the thickness of the minor tickmarks, in pixels. It should be greater than 0.

Remarks

To specify the thickness of the major tickmarks, use the corresponding TickmarksBase.Thickness property.

For more information, refer to Grid Lines, Tickmarks and Interlacing.

Examples

This example demonstrates how the grid lines and tickmarks of an axis can be customized at runtime.

To access an axis, you should cast your chart's diagram object to the required diagram type. Then, use the Axis2D.Tickmarks and AxisBase.GridLines properties to access the corresponding elements. To define the number of minor tickmarks (grid lines), use the AxisBase.MinorCount property.

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

// Customize the appearance of the axes' tickmarks.
diagram.AxisX.Tickmarks.CrossAxis = true;
diagram.AxisX.Tickmarks.Length = 5;
diagram.AxisX.Tickmarks.Thickness = 2;

diagram.AxisY.Tickmarks.Visible = false;
diagram.AxisY.Tickmarks.MinorVisible = false;

diagram.AxisX.Tickmarks.MinorLength = 3;
diagram.AxisX.Tickmarks.MinorThickness = 1;

diagram.AxisX.MinorCount = 2;
diagram.AxisY.MinorCount = 4;

// Customize the appearance of the axes' grid lines.
diagram.AxisX.GridLines.Visible = false;
diagram.AxisX.GridLines.MinorVisible = false;

diagram.AxisY.GridLines.Visible = true;
diagram.AxisY.GridLines.MinorVisible = true;

diagram.AxisY.GridLines.Color = Color.Red;
diagram.AxisY.GridLines.LineStyle.DashStyle = DashStyle.Solid;
diagram.AxisY.GridLines.LineStyle.Thickness = 2;

diagram.AxisY.GridLines.MinorColor = Color.Blue;
diagram.AxisY.GridLines.MinorLineStyle.DashStyle = DashStyle.Dash;
diagram.AxisY.GridLines.MinorLineStyle.Thickness = 1;
