Remarks

Use the Floor property to adjust the appearance of the three-dimensional chart floor (change the background color, specify the floor thickness and apply borders). To format chart walls, use the View3DOptions.BackWall and View3DOptions.SideWall properties.

NOTE

Currently, the SpeadsheetControl does not display charts with the custom floor (the default formatting will be applied). However, display settings are loaded and stored in supported formats, and you can modify them programmatically.

Examples

The example below demonstrates how to create the 3-D clustered column chart and adjust its appearance. In particular, the code specifies how to customize the chart walls and floor by using the View3DOptions.BackWall, View3DOptions.SideWall and View3DOptions.Floor properties.

Worksheet worksheet = workbook.Worksheets["chartTask5"];
workbook.Worksheets.ActiveWorksheet = worksheet;

// Create a chart and specify its location.
Chart chart = worksheet.Charts.Add(ChartType.Column3DClustered, worksheet["B2:C8"]);
chart.TopLeftCell = worksheet.Cells["F2"];
chart.BottomRightCell = worksheet.Cells["L15"];

// Specify that each data point in the series has a different color.
chart.Views[0].VaryColors = true;
// Specify the series outline.
chart.Series[0].Outline.SetSolidFill(Color.AntiqueWhite);
// Hide the legend.
chart.Legend.Visible = false;

// Specify the side wall color.
chart.View3D.SideWall.Fill.SetSolidFill(Color.FromArgb(0xDC, 0xFA, 0xDD));
// Specify the pattern fill for the back wall.
chart.View3D.BackWall.Fill.SetPatternFill(Color.FromArgb(0x9C, 0xFB, 0x9F), Color.WhiteSmoke, DevExpress.Spreadsheet.Drawings.ShapeFillPatternType.DiagonalBrick);

SurfaceOptions floorOptions = chart.View3D.Floor;
// Specify the floor color.
floorOptions.Fill.SetSolidFill(Color.FromArgb(0xFA, 0xDC, 0xF9));
// Specify the floor border. 
floorOptions.Outline.SetSolidFill(Color.FromArgb(0xB4, 0x95, 0xDE));
floorOptions.Outline.Width = 1.25;
