Property Paths

You can access this nested property as listed below:

Object Type Path to SnapSpacing
ChartRangeControlClientBase
.GridOptions.SnapSpacing
DateTimeChartRangeControlClient
.GridOptions.SnapSpacing
NumericChartRangeControlClient
.GridOptions.SnapSpacing

Remarks

Use the SnapSpacing property to specify the numeric step to which the new selected range is snapped in the viewport area of the range control.

The image below shows the SnapSpacing property in action with the value set to 100000.

ChartNumericRangeControlClient_SnapSpacing

Note that the selected range of data is displayed as lines by the chart numeric client within the range control’s viewport.

Examples

This example shows how to bind a numeric chart range control client to a System.Collections.Generic.List containing NumericItem objects.

In order to provide data to a chart numeric range control client, you need to access the ChartRangeControlClientDataProvider object using the ChartRangeControlClientBase.DataProvider property and assign a data source to the ChartRangeControlClientDataProvider.DataSource property.

Each NumericItem object contains Argument, Value and Series properties, to which a numeric chart range control client is bound via its ChartRangeControlClientDataProvider.ArgumentDataMember, ChartRangeControlClientDataProvider.ValueDataMember, and ChartRangeControlClientDataProvider.SeriesDataMember (optional) properties.

In addition, this example shows how to customize chart client common settings (e.g., change the numeric range, customize template view and grid options).
