Namespace: DevExpress.Xpf.Charts

Assembly: DevExpress.Xpf.Charts.v21.2.dll


public string Pattern { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

A String, which represents the pattern. The default value is Empty.


The PointOptions.Pattern property is now obsolete. Use the AxisLabel.TextPattern, SeriesLabel.TextPattern, and Series.LegendTextPattern properties instead.

Use the Pattern property to define a pattern for displaying text by series labels or the legend. Various placeholders enclosed in braces correspond to the available display patterns. For example, a pair of placeholders specified together (e.g., {A} - {V}), will cause each data point to be represented by both its argument and value, separated by a hyphen.

The available placeholders are detailed below.

Pattern Description
{A} Use it to display a series point arguments.
{V} Use it to display a series point values.
{S} Use it to display the name of the series.

In addition to the Pattern property, you can specify the text to be displayed in a simpler way with the PointOptions.PointView property. Note that if both properties are set to non-default values, the Pattern property has a higher priority than the PointOptions.PointView property.
