Namespace: DevExpress.XtraCharts

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraCharts.v22.2.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Charts


public class TimeSpanScaleOptions :

The following members return TimeSpanScaleOptions objects:


The following example shows how to group minute-by-minute data into data points with a greater measurement unit (“Hour”).

To do this, you can use the following code:

private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) {
    XYDiagram diagram = chartControl1.Diagram as XYDiagram;
    if (diagram != null) {
        diagram.AxisX.TimeSpanScaleOptions.ScaleMode = ScaleMode.Manual;
        diagram.AxisX.TimeSpanScaleOptions.MeasureUnit = TimeSpanMeasureUnit.Hour;
        diagram.AxisX.TimeSpanScaleOptions.AggregateFunction = AggregateFunction.Average;
        diagram.AxisX.TimeSpanScaleOptions.GridSpacing = 6;
        diagram.AxisX.TimeSpanScaleOptions.GridAlignment = TimeSpanGridAlignment.Hour;

The example uses the following API members:

Member Description
ScaleOptionsBase.ScaleMode Gets or sets the scale mode for an axis.
TimeSpanScaleOptions.MeasureUnit Gets or sets the detail level for time-span values.
ScaleGridOptionsBase.AggregateFunction Gets or sets the value indicating the aggregate function that should be used to relieve data.
