AxisScaling Interface

Contains axis scaling options.

Namespace: DevExpress.Spreadsheet.Charts

Assembly: DevExpress.Spreadsheet.v23.1.Core.dll


public interface AxisScaling


To access an object exposing the AxisScaling interface, use the Axis.Scaling property. Utilize it’s members to control the minimum (AxisScaling.AutoMin or AxisScaling.Min) and maximum (AxisScaling.AutoMax or AxisScaling.Max) values of the axis, change the numerical axis to logarithmic (AxisScaling.LogScale and AxisScaling.LogBase) and specify the axis orientation (AxisScaling.Orientation).


The example below demonstrates how to create a clustered column chart and specify the value axis scale. Set the AxisScaling.AutoMax and AxisScaling.AutoMin properties to false to indicate that maximum and minimum values of the axis will be set manually by using the AxisScaling.Max and AxisScaling.Min properties.

View Example

Worksheet worksheet = workbook.Worksheets["chartTask3"];
workbook.Worksheets.ActiveWorksheet = worksheet;

// Create a chart and specify its location.
Chart chart = worksheet.Charts.Add(ChartType.ColumnClustered, worksheet["B3:C5"]);
chart.TopLeftCell = worksheet.Cells["H2"];
chart.BottomRightCell = worksheet.Cells["N14"];

// Set the minimum and maximum values for the chart value axis.
Axis axis = chart.PrimaryAxes[1];
axis.Scaling.AutoMax = false;
axis.Scaling.Max = 1;
axis.Scaling.AutoMin = false;
axis.Scaling.Min = 0;

// Hide the legend.
chart.Legend.Visible = false;
