Property Value

Type Description

A SmallChartText object, representing the small chart text options.


Use the SmallChartText property, to access and customize the settings of the text, which is displayed by a chart at runtime, if the chart’s dimensions are too small for its diagram to be drawn.


To access options of the text that inform that the chart has no data to display, use the ChartControl.EmptyChartText property.

For the WebChartControl, use the similar WebChartControl.SmallChartText property.


This example demonstrates how to provide a custom text for a chart, when it’s too small for its diagram to be drawn.

SmallChartText myText = chartControl1.SmallChartText;
myText.Antialiasing = true;
myText.Text = "Increase the chart's size, to view its layout.";
myText.TextColor = Color.Beige;
