The settings for the annotation free position.

Namespace: DevExpress.Xpf.Charts

Assembly: DevExpress.Xpf.Charts.v22.2.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Wpf.Charts


public class FreePosition :


If the Annotation.ShapePosition property is specified as FreePosition, it is possible to define a parent element for the annotation shape using the FreePosition.DockTarget property. Configure the annotation layout using the FreePosition.HorizontalAlignment and FreePosition.VerticalAlignment properties. Indents from parent element edges can be customized using the Annotation.Margin property.


This example demonstrates how to customize the annotation layout when the Annotation.ShapePosition property is specified as the FreePosition type.

To do this, dock the annotation to the required element using the FreePosition.DockTarget property. Then, specify the FreePosition.VerticalAlignment and FreePosition.HorizontalAlignment properties, to configure the annotation position.

View Example

    <dxc:FreePosition HorizontalAlignment="Right" 
                      DockTarget="{Binding ElementName=defaultPane}"/>
