Remarks

Use the NumericChartRangeControlClient.GridOptions property to get access to the NumericChartRangeControlClientGridOptions object.

Then, you can customize grid settings using the ChartRangeControlClientGridOptions.SnapSpacing, and ChartRangeControlClientGridOptions.GridSpacing properties.

NOTE

Grid properties provided by the NumericChartRangeControlClientGridOptions class are calculated automatically, because the ChartRangeControlClientGridOptions.Auto is set to true by default. When you change the default value of the specific property, this resets the grid automatic calculation (the ChartRangeControlClientGridOptions.Auto is set to false).

To format chart client argument values, use the ChartRangeControlClientGridOptions.LabelFormat property.

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).
