    A wall is the area (or plane) behind, below, or to the side of a chart.


    A wall can have a border, fill effect, or width (measured in model units). The wall can be visible or hidden. The axis grids (major and minor) and stripes are painted on the walls. The axis grid lines (major and minor) are painted over the axis stripes.

    See the following for more information on how to set properties for walls:


    The following example shows the back of the plot area and fills it with a solid color.

    Copy Code
    FarPoint.Win.Chart.YPlotArea plotArea = new FarPoint.Win.Chart.YPlotArea();
    plotArea.BackWall.Visible = true;
    plotArea.BackWall.Fill = new FarPoint.Win.Chart.SolidFill(Color.Aquamarine);
    Visual Basic
    Copy Code
    Dim plotArea As New FarPoint.Win.Chart.YPlotArea()
    plotArea.BackWall.Visible = True
    plotArea.BackWall.Fill = New FarPoint.Win.Chart.SolidFill(Color.Aquamarine)
