public class ContinuousTimeSpanScaleOptions :
    TimeSpanScaleOptionsBase

The following members return ContinuousTimeSpanScaleOptions objects:

Remarks

You can use an ContinuousTimeSpanScaleOptions object to specify the following properties:

When an x-axis scale is continuous, you cannot aggregate data and specify an axis measurement unit.

You can configure the following parameters for continuous axes:

The grid alignment and grid spacing are automatically calculated when the AutoGrid property is enabled.

Example

This example shows how to configure a continuous time-span scale options of an x-axis.
