The X-axis is the axis of arguments.
This topic consists of the following sections.
To access X-axis settings, use the X-Axis Settings button in the Diagram section of the Design Ribbon tab.
This will invoke the X-Axis Settings dialog.
This dialog contains the following settings.
Allows you to reverse the X-axis. If the X-axis is reversed, its values are ordered from right to left.
Allows you to hide and show the X-axis.
Allows you to hide and show the X-axis title. You can choose whether to use the default text or specify a custom string.
Allows you to enable zooming for the X-axis. The X-axis' scroll bar provides the capability to perform navigation in the zoomed diagram.
Limit visible points
Allows you to limit the number of points displayed on the chart's diagram along the X-axis. The X-axis' scroll bar provides the capability to perform navigation if the number of all points exceeds the number of visible points.
Gets or sets whether or not the chart's axis is visible.
Gets or sets the title of the chart's axis.
Gets or sets whether or not the title of the chart's axis is visible.
Gets or sets whether or not the axis is reversed.
Gets or sets whether zooming is enabled for the current X-axis.
Gets or sets whether the number of visible points is limited for the current X-axis.
Gets or sets the number of visible points displayed for the current X-axis.
If the dimension in the Arguments section contains numeric data, the Chart can create either a continuous X-axis or a discrete X-axis.
If a continuous axis is used, the distance between argument values is proportional to their values.
On a discrete axis, all argument values are an equal distance from each other.
To specify the X-axis type in the Designer, invoke the data item menu for the argument dimension and select the axis type.
To do this in code, use the Dimension.IsDiscreteNumericScale property.
Note that the continuous X-axis is not supported in OLAP mode.
