2D Series Views

  • 3 minutes to read

The WinForms Chart Control provides a wide variety of different 2D view types which give you the ability to display data as any of the basic chart types, or even as a combination of different series views. In addition, if the data provided for a particular chart type is still valid for another chart type, you can change the current series view with a single click or line of code (see How to: Change the View of a Series). This makes the Chart Control more flexible and effective in representing data.

The topics listed in this section describe the 2D chart types available in the WinForms Chart Control, along with short descriptions on how to use them. The following 2D series view types are available:
