How to: Use Manual Numeric Scale Options of an Axis

  • 3 minutes to read

This example demonstrates how to use the manual numeric scale options of the X-axis.

When the AxisX2D.NumericScaleOptions property is set to ManualNumericScaleOptions, you can manually define the ManualNumericScaleOptions.GridAlignment, ManualNumericScaleOptions.MeasureUnit and ManualNumericScaleOptions.AggregateFunction properties.

To use the automatic numeric scale options, set the AxisX2D.NumericScaleOptions property to AutomaticNumericScaleOptions and choose the appropriate AutomaticNumericScaleOptions.AggregateFunction.

To prevent the axis scale from being divided into intervals (and thus prevent chart data from being aggregated), set the ManualNumericScaleOptions.AggregateFunction or AutomaticNumericScaleOptions.AggregateFunction property to None.
