    The following example demonstrate how to set the chart display format to 3D.

    C#
    Copy Code
    FarPoint.Win.Spread.Chart.SpreadChart chart = new FarPoint.Win.Spread.Chart.SpreadChart();
    chart.ViewType = FarPoint.Win.Chart.ChartViewType.View3D;
    
    Visual Basic
    Copy Code
    Dim chart As New FarPoint.Win.Spread.Chart.SpreadChart()
    chart.ViewType = FarPoint.Win.Chart.ChartViewType.View3D

    1. On the Chart Designer, right-click on the chart.
    2. Select [3D Display] or [2D Display] (the displayed items differ depending on the current display format) from the context menu.
