Name Description
Auto

A scale type is detected automatically based on the type of underlying data. This means that numerical data will be treated as numerical, date-time data as date-time, qualitative as qualitative values.

DateTime

Identifies the DateTime data scale. This means that data provided for the DataPointCollection.Points will be treated as DateTime values, and will be shown on the axis as DateTime values (e.g., January, 2003, January, 2004, and January, 2005).

Numerical

Identifies the Numerical data scale. This means that data provided for the DataPointCollection.Points will be treated as numerical values, and will be shown on the axis as numbers (e.g., 100, 200, and 300).

Qualitative

Identifies the Qualitative data scale. This means that data provided for the DataPointCollection.Points will be treated as qualitative values, and will be shown on the axis as textual representations (e.g., A, B, and C).

Remarks

The values listed by the ScaleType enumerator are used to set the DataPointCollection.ArgumentScaleType and DataPointCollection.ValueScaleType properties.
