Gets or sets the value that specifies how to determine the total number of top N series points.
A TopNMode enumeration value, which chooses one of the modes.
The TopNOptions.Count property value is used. This value explicitly specifies the total number of top N series points.
The TopNOptions.ThresholdValue property value is used. This value implicitly specifies the total number of top N series points, so that only series points, whose values are greater than the ThresholdValue property’s value, are considered as top N series points.
The TopNOptions.ThresholdPercent property value is used. This value implicitly specifies the total number of top N series points, so that only series points, whose value’s ratio to the summary of all series points values is greater than the ThresholdPercent property’s value, are considered as top N series points.
You can access this nested property as listed below:
|Object Type||Path to Mode|
The “Top N” feature is intended to visually display only selected series points of a series, and is determined by the TopNOptions object returned by the SeriesBase.TopNOptions property. This feature is applicable only if the SeriesBase.TopNOptions‘s TopNOptions.Enabled property is set to true.
If this feature is enabled, then the Mode property specifies the determining property (TopNOptions.Count, TopNOptions.ThresholdValue or TopNOptions.ThresholdPercent) that will specify how many series points should be visible in a chart. All other series points are combined into a single “Others” point, which can be visible or hidden, according to the TopNOptions.ShowOthers property value. The text shown as an argument of the “Others” point is specified by the TopNOptions.OthersArgument property.
