    Custom Axes
    In This Topic

    The Chart control supports the creation of additional custom axes through the use of the chart's CustomAxes collection. Once a custom axis has been added to the collection, in addition to setting the normal axis properties, you will need to set the following properties:

    Custom Axes in a Chart

    Custom Axes in a Chart

    The following code sample demonstrates creating a custom axis, adding it to the Axes collection for the ChartArea, and setting its properties.

    To write code in Visual Basic.NET

    Visual Basic code. Paste INSIDE the section Format event
    Copy Code
    ' create the custom axis and add it to the ChartArea's Axes collection
    Dim customAxisY As New GrapeCity.ActiveReports.Chart.CustomAxis
    Me.ChartControl1.ChartAreas(0).Axes.Add(customAxisY)
    
    ' set the basic axis properties for customAxisY
    customAxisY.LabelFont = New GrapeCity.ActiveReports.Chart.FontInfo(Color.Red, New Font("Arial", 7.0!))
    customAxisY.LabelsGap = 1
    customAxisY.LabelsVisible = True
    customAxisY.Line = New GrapeCity.ActiveReports.Chart.Graphics.Line(Color.Red, 1, GrapeCity.ActiveReports.Chart.Graphics.LineStyle.Solid)
    customAxisY.Max = 100
    customAxisY.Min = 0
    customAxisY.MaxDerived = False
    customAxisY.Visible = True
    
    ' set major tick
    customAxisY.MajorTick = New GrapeCity.ActiveReports.Chart.Tick(New GrapeCity.ActiveReports.Chart.Graphics.Line(Color.Red, 1), New GrapeCity.ActiveReports.Chart.Graphics.Line(Color.Red, 1), 20, 5, True)
    customAxisY.MajorTick.Visible = True ' set minor tick customAxisY.MinorTick.Visible = False customAxisY.MinorTick.GridLine.Style = Chart.Graphics.LineStyle.None ' set custom axis property customAxisY.Parent = ((CType(Me.ChartControl1.ChartAreas(0).Axes("AxisY"), GrapeCity.ActiveReports.Chart.Axis))) customAxisY.PlacementLength = 20 customAxisY.PlacementLocation = 45

    To write code in C#

    C# code. Paste INSIDE the section Format event
    Copy Code
    // create the custom axis and add it to the ChartArea's Axes collection
    GrapeCity.ActiveReports.Chart.CustomAxis customAxisY = new GrapeCity.ActiveReports.Chart.CustomAxis();
    this.ChartControl1.ChartAreas[0].Axes.Add(customAxisY);
    
    // set the basic axis properties for customAxisY
    customAxisY.LabelFont = new GrapeCity.ActiveReports.Chart.FontInfo(Color.Red, new Font("Arial", 7F, FontStyle.Regular, GraphicsUnit.Point, ((System.Byte)(0))));
    customAxisY.LabelsGap = 1;
    customAxisY.LabelsVisible = true;
    customAxisY.Line = new GrapeCity.ActiveReports.Chart.Graphics.Line(Color.Red);
    customAxisY.MajorTick = new GrapeCity.ActiveReports.Chart.Tick(new GrapeCity.ActiveReports.Chart.Graphics.Line(Color.Red, 1), new GrapeCity.ActiveReports.Chart.Graphics.Line(Color.Red, 1), 1, 2F, true);
    customAxisY.MajorTick.GridLine = new GrapeCity.ActiveReports.Chart.Graphics.Line(Color.Red, 1, GrapeCity.ActiveReports.Chart.Graphics.LineStyle.Solid);
    customAxisY.MajorTick.Visible = true;
    customAxisY.Max = 5;
    customAxisY.MaxDerived = false;
    customAxisY.Min = 0;
    customAxisY.Visible = true;
    
    // set the special custom axis properties
    customAxisY.Parent = (GrapeCity.ActiveReports.Chart.Axis)this.ChartControl1.ChartAreas[0].Axes["AxisY"];
    customAxisY.PlacementLength = 20;
    customAxisY.PlacementLocation = 30;
