Object Type Path to OthersArgument


The “Top N” feature is intended to visually represent only selected series points in 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 TopNOptions.Mode property determines which property (TopNOptions.Count, TopNOptions.ThresholdValue or TopNOptions.ThresholdPercent) specifies how many series points will 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 OthersArgument property.

The following images demonstrate how the OthersArgument property works.
