    Chart Line Style
    In This Topic

    You can create a line style with special options such as open and end arrows for the line chart with the LineBorder property and the EnhancedSolidLine class. You can also specify line style options such as dash, cap type, and so on.

    Line style containing arrows

    Using Code

    1. Create a line chart.
    2. Create an EnhancedSolidLine object.
    3. Set the LineBorder property.

    Example

    This example code creates a line chart with a line style that contains arrows.

    C#
    Copy Code
    FarPoint.Win.Chart.EnhancedSolidLine eh = new FarPoint.Win.Chart.EnhancedSolidLine(System.Drawing.Color.Green, 1, FarPoint.Win.Chart.CompoundType.Double, FarPoint.Win.Chart.DashType.Dash, FarPoint.Win.Chart.CapType.Flat, FarPoint.Win.Chart.JoinType.Round, FarPoint.Win.Chart.ArrowType.Arrow, FarPoint.Win.Chart.ArrowType.OpenArrow, 1, 2);
    FarPoint.Win.Chart.LineSeries series1 = new FarPoint.Win.Chart.LineSeries();
    series1.PointMarker = new FarPoint.Win.Chart.BuiltinMarker(FarPoint.Win.Chart.MarkerShape.Circle, 7.0f);
    series1.PointFill = new FarPoint.Win.Chart.GradientFill(System.Drawing.Color.Coral, System.Drawing.Color.Crimson);
    series1.PointBorder = new FarPoint.Win.Chart.SolidLine(System.Drawing.Color.Yellow);
    series1.LineBorder = eh;
    series1.Values.Add(8.0);
    series1.Values.Add(12.0);
    series1.Values.Add(14.0);
    series1.Values.Add(15.0);
    FarPoint.Win.Chart.YPlotArea plotArea = new FarPoint.Win.Chart.YPlotArea();
    plotArea.Location = new System.Drawing.PointF(0.2f, 0.2f);
    plotArea.Size = new System.Drawing.SizeF(0.6f, 0.6f);
    plotArea.Series.Add(series1);
    FarPoint.Win.Chart.LabelArea labelArea = new FarPoint.Win.Chart.LabelArea();
    labelArea.Location = new System.Drawing.PointF(0.5f, 0.02f);
    labelArea.AlignmentX = 0.5f;
    labelArea.AlignmentY = 0.0f;
    labelArea.Text = "Chart";
    FarPoint.Win.Chart.ChartModel model = new FarPoint.Win.Chart.ChartModel();
    model.LabelAreas.Add(labelArea);
    model.PlotAreas.Add(plotArea);
    FarPoint.Win.Spread.Chart.SpreadChart chart = new FarPoint.Win.Spread.Chart.SpreadChart();
    chart.Size = new Size(200, 200);
    chart.Location = new Point(100, 100);
    chart.Model = model;
    fpSpread1.Sheets[0].Charts.Add(chart);
    
    VB
    Copy Code
    Dim eh As New FarPoint.Win.Chart.EnhancedSolidLine(System.Drawing.Color.Green, 1, FarPoint.Win.Chart.CompoundType.Double, FarPoint.Win.Chart.DashType.Dash, FarPoint.Win.Chart.CapType.Flat, FarPoint.Win.Chart.JoinType.Round, FarPoint.Win.Chart.ArrowType.Arrow, FarPoint.Win.Chart.ArrowType.OpenArrow, 1, 2)

    labelArea.AlignmentX = 0.5F
    labelArea.AlignmentY = 0.0F
    labelArea.Text = "Chart"
    Dim model As New FarPoint.Win.Chart.ChartModel()
    model.LabelAreas.Add(labelArea)
    model.PlotAreas.Add(plotArea)
    Dim chart As New FarPoint.Win.Spread.Chart.SpreadChart()
    chart.Size = New Size(200, 200)
    chart.Location = New Point(100, 100)
    chart.Model = model
    fpSpread1.Sheets(0).Charts.Add(chart)
