Adding Panes

To quickly assign a new pane to a series at design time, select the required series. In the Properties window, expand the XYDiagramSeriesViewBase.Pane property, and in the drop-down menu click New pane. Then, a new pane with default settings will be created and associated with the current series, automatically.

Additional panes reside in the diagram's collection, which can be accessed via the XYDiagram2D.Panes property. So, if it's required to access the collection of panes (to create a new additional pane, or to customize the existing ones) at design time, select your chart, and in the Properties window, expand the ChartControl.Diagram property. In the list of its options, locate the XYDiagram2D.Panes property and click its ellipsis button, to invoke the Pane Collection Editor.

Panes_1

In this dialog, click Add to create a new pane, and then use the available properties to customize its size and appearance. These properties are described in the following documents: Panes Layout and Panes Appearance.

To apply the changes and quit the dialog, click Close.

Then, to associate the created pane with an existing series, select the required series. In the Properties window, via its XYDiagramSeriesViewBase.Pane property, assign the pane to this series.
