AxisScaling.Max Property

Gets or sets the maximum value of the numerical or date axis. This may not be the same as the maximum value of the series associated with the axis.

Namespace: DevExpress.Spreadsheet.Charts

Assembly: DevExpress.Spreadsheet.v22.1.Core.dll


double Max { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

A Double value that specifies the maximum value to display on the axis.


Use the Max property to specify or obtain the maximum value shown on the numerical or date axis. Note that this property takes effect only when the AxisScaling.AutoMax property is set to false.


The Max property will have no effect on the visual appearance of a chart displayed in the SpreadsheetControl, until you set the minimum value of the axis via the AxisScaling.Min property.


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

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;
