XYDiagram2D.EnableAxisYZooming Property

Specifies whether zooming is allowed for the diagram’s panes along their Y-axes.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraCharts

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraCharts.v22.2.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Charts


public bool EnableAxisYZooming { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

true to allow Y-axis zooming; otherwise, false.


Use the EnableAxisYZooming property to specify whether it’s allowed to zoom the diagram‘s panes along their Y-axes, both at design and runtime.


The EnableAxisYZooming property affects on the diagram’s zooming capability only on the WinForms platform. The ASP.NET WebForms Chart Control and MVC Chart Extension do not support this feature.

After you’ve specified the EnableAxisYZooming property, you can individually adjust the capability to zoom the Y-axis of each pane, via its XYDiagramPaneBase.EnableAxisYZooming property. And, the default value of the XYDiagramPaneBase.EnableAxisYZooming property means that the actual setting for this pane is obtained from the EnableAxisYZooming property.

At runtime, you can get the actual status for a pane’s Y-axis zooming via the read-only XYDiagramPaneBase.ActualEnableAxisYZooming property.


When the EnableAxisYZooming property is enabled, the XYDiagram2D.ZoomingOptions property becomes available, which allows you to choose ways in which zooming can be performed (via the mouse and / or keyboard or using spread or pinch gestures in your touchscreen device).

For the X-axis, the similar XYDiagram2D.EnableAxisXZooming property is available.

To enable scrolling along the Y-axis of the diagram’s panes, use the XYDiagram2D.EnableAxisYScrolling property.

For more information, refer to Zooming and Scrolling (2D XY-Charts).
