Defines the settings of the pattern fill applied to a chart element.

Namespace: DevExpress.Spreadsheet.Drawings

Assembly: DevExpress.Spreadsheet.v20.1.Core.dll

Declaration

public interface ShapePatternFill
Public Interface ShapePatternFill

Remarks

To access an object exposing the ShapePatternFill interface, use the ShapeFill.PatternFill property.

To apply the pattern fill to a chart element, call the ShapeFill.SetPatternFill method. Then, use the ShapePatternFill object's property to modify the specified fill: obtain or change the pattern type (ShapePatternFill.PatternType), get or set the background (ShapePatternFill.BackgroundColor) and foreground (ShapePatternFill.ForegroundColor) colors.

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;
