Type Description

An AnimationAutoStartMode enumeration value.

Available values:

Name Description

The animation is played once. After that, the series receives its final state.


An animated element receives its start state (as it appears before the animation start). The element may be invisible in this mode.


An animated element receives its final state (as it appears after the animation end).


Use the AnimationAutoStartMode property to choose in which state a series should reside before the animation is triggered (e.g. when the ChartControl.AnimationMode property is turned on).

Note that setting the AnimationAutoStartMode to SetStartState may cause the series to be blank (because this is its pre-animation state).
