Type Description

Available values:

Name Description

The values are not sorted.


The values are sorted in ascending order.


The values are sorted in descending order.


Use the SeriesSorting property to specify the order in which automatically generated series objects are sorted within the chart control based upon the series names. Note that the names of the dynamically created series are taken from the data field specified by the ChartControl.SeriesDataMember (WebChartControl.SeriesDataMember) property.

The sorting order which is applied to the chart control’s series can be visually identified within the chart control’s legend. In some series views (the most obvious example is the bar series) the applied sorting order affects the order in which the chart elements (in particular, bars) that represent data points with an identical argument are displayed within the diagram.
