Namespace: DevExpress.Spreadsheet.Charts

Assembly: DevExpress.Spreadsheet.v18.2.Core.dll


public interface Trendline :

The following members accept/return Trendline objects:


The Trendline object is contained within the TrendlineCollection collection. The Series.Trendlines property provides access to a collection that contains all trendlines for a specified series.

The following code uses the TrendlineCollection.Add method to display a trendline of the ChartTrendlineType.Polynomial type. The Trendline object in the collection is customized as required.

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

// Create a chart and specify its location.
Chart chart = worksheet.Charts.Add(ChartType.ScatterMarkers);
chart.SelectData(worksheet["C2:F3"], ChartDataDirection.Row);
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.AutoMin = false;
axis.Scaling.Min = 0.6;
axis.Scaling.Max = 1.0;
chart.PrimaryAxes[1].MajorGridlines.Visible = false;

// Display a polynomial trendline.

// Customize the trendline.
Trendline tline = chart.Series[0].Trendlines[0];
tline.DisplayEquation = true;
tline.CustomName = "Trend";
tline.DisplayRSquare = true;
tline.Backward = 1;
tline.Forward = 2;

The resulting chart is shown in the following picture.
