IntervalDateTimeScaleOptions.Pattern Property

Gets or sets a format string that configures text for the axis label and crosshair label.

Namespace: DevExpress.Xpf.Charts

Assembly: DevExpress.Xpf.Charts.v20.1.dll

Declaration

public string Pattern { get; set; }
Public Property Pattern As String

Property Value

Type Description
String

A format string.

Remarks

This pattern is applied when DateTimeScaleOptionsBase.GridLayoutMode is set to GridAndLabelCentered or GridShiftedLabelCentered. Otherwise, use the AxisLabel.TextPattern property.

Patterns can contain regular text (displayed as is) and value placeholders in braces. To format numeric and date/time values, you can apply Format Specifiers. Use a colon to separate a placeholder and its format specifier.

The following table contains the available placeholders:

Placeholder Description
{OB} Displays an opening bracket.
{CB} Displays a closing bracket.
{OS} Displays the greater than sign.
{US} Displays the less than or less than or equal to sign.
{A1} Displays the interval start value.
{A2} Displays the interval end value.

Examples

This example demonstrates how to create a histogram chart based on date-time values.

Use the following API members to configure histogram options:

Member Description
IntervalDateTimeScaleOptions Stores options for the date-time x-axis whose scale is divided into intervals.
ManualDateTimeScaleOptions.AggregateFunction Gets or sets the function that is used to aggregate date-time axis data when one of the AxisX2D.DateTimeScaleOptions, AxisX3D.DateTimeScaleOptions, or RadarAxisX2D.DateTimeScaleOptions properties is set to ManualDateTimeScaleOptions.
OverflowValue Gets or sets the overflow interval's start value.
UnderflowValue Gets or sets the underflow interval's end value.
Pattern Gets or sets a format string that configures text for the axis label and crosshair label.
OverflowValuePattern Gets or sets a format string that configures text for the overflow interval axis label and crosshair label.
UnderflowValuePattern Gets or sets a format string that configures text for the underflow interval axis label and crosshair label.
