public int MajorTickCount { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description


An integer value that defines the total number of major tickmarks.


Use the MajorTickCount and LinearScale.MinorTickCount properties to specify the number of tickmarks shown on a linear scale. The appearance of major and minor tickmarks is specified by the LinearScale.MajorTickmark and LinearScale.MinorTickmark properties, correspondingly.

On the image below MajorTickCount = 6, which generated 6 major tickmarks: for 0, 20, 40, 60, 80 and 100 values.


This means, for example, if the LinearScale.MinValue is set to 0 and LinearScale.MaxValue is set to 10 and you want to show a major tickmark (and a label) for each integer value, you should set the MajorTickCount property to 11.


Note also that if you don’t need to show the first or the last major tickmark, or both - you can hide them by setting the ShowFirst and ShowLast properties of the LinearScale.MajorTickmark object to false.
