Namespace: DevExpress.XtraCharts

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraCharts.v22.2.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Charts


public virtual bool Rotated { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

true to rotate the diagram; otherwise, false.


If the Rotated property is enabled, the X-axis is displayed vertically, and the Y-axis is displayed horizontally.

Note that the Rotated property doesn’t affect the functionality of the axes. To clarify - the axis of arguments is still the X-axis, and the axis of values - the Y-axis.

Rotated = false Rotated = true
Diagram_XY_0 Diagram_XY_0a

For more information, refer to Diagram and Axes.


The following code shows how to change the XYDiagram.Rotated property value. Note that this code is valid only if the current chart’s diagram (returned by its ChartControl.Diagram or WebChartControl.Diagram property) is an XYDiagram or its descendant.

((DevExpress.XtraCharts.XYDiagram)chartControl1.Diagram).Rotated = true;
