ChartLineOptions MinorGridlines { get; }

Property Value

Type Description

A ChartLineOptions object containing chart line display options.


Minor gridlines represent a series of horizontal or vertical lines drawn across an axis from its minor tick marks through the entire plot area. Use the MinorGridlines property to display and format minor gridlines for the specified axis.

To add major gridlines to the chart and adjust their appearance, use the Axis.MajorGridlines property.


The example below demonstrates how to create a simple line chart and display major gridlines for the category axis and the minor gridlines for the value axis by setting the ChartLineOptions.Visible property to true.

Dim worksheet As Worksheet = workbook.Worksheets("chartTask5")
workbook.Worksheets.ActiveWorksheet = worksheet

' Create a chart and specify its location.
Dim chart As Chart = worksheet.Charts.Add(ChartType.Line, worksheet("B2:C8"))
chart.TopLeftCell = worksheet.Cells("F2")
chart.BottomRightCell = worksheet.Cells("L15")

' Display the major gridlines of the category axis.
chart.PrimaryAxes(0).MajorGridlines.Visible = True
' Display the minor gridlines of the value axis.
chart.PrimaryAxes(1).MinorGridlines.Visible = True

' Hide the legend.
chart.Legend.Visible = False
