Element Layout Control


Introduction
This section will describe the following:

 

Besides the obvious, an axis can also control how elements drawn on its scale behave. These behavioral features are determined by the axis that shows element names or x values. For a vertical combo chart this would mean the x axis and y axis for horizontal combo.

Column and Cylinder Widths

Example: This code specifies the column or cylinder widths for a ChartType.Combo chart.

[C#]

Chart.XAxis.SpacingPercentage = 30; // Default is 16

// When this property is set, it takes precedence over spacing percentage.
Chart.XAxis.StaticColumnWidth = 20;

[Visual Basic]

Chart.XAxis.SpacingPercentage = 30 ' Default is 16

' When this property is set, it takes precedence over spacing percentage.
Chart.XAxis.StaticColumnWidth = 20

Tip: The column width control also defines the tool tip hotspot width of area line series types.
 

Clustering Columns / Cylinders
This feature enables columns in 3D modes to cluster (draw side by side) or not (draw one in front of the other). The default behavior is to cluster and column must be clustered in 2D mode.

[C#]

Chart.Use3D = true;
Chart.XAxis.ClusterColumns = false;

[Visual Basic]

Chart.Use3D = True
Chart.XAxis.ClusterColumns = False
