AxisScaleBreakStyle.StartFromZero Property

Gets or sets a StartFromZero enumeration value that indicates whether to start the scale break from zero.

Namespace:  System.Web.UI.DataVisualization.Charting
Assembly:  System.Web.DataVisualization (in System.Web.DataVisualization.dll)

public StartFromZero StartFromZero { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Web.UI.DataVisualization.Charting.StartFromZero
A StartFromZero enumeration value that indicates whether to start the scale break from zero.

If the StartFromZero property is set to Auto, the chart will automatically calculate whether to start the Y-axis scale minimum from the lowest value in the series or from zero.

The following code example demonstrates how to enable and customize a scale break after the Chart control has been added to the design surface.

using System.Web.UI.DataVisualization.Charting

private void AddChartData()
{
   chart1.Series["Series1"].Points.Add(new DataPoint(1, 2));
   chart1.Series["Series1"].Points.Add(new DataPoint(2, 4));
   chart1.Series["Series1"].Points.Add(new DataPoint(3, 400000));
   chart1.Series["Series1"].Points.Add(new DataPoint(4, 3));
}

private void AddScaleBreaks()
{
   // Enable scale breaks.
   chart1.ChartAreas["ChartArea1"].AxisY.ScaleBreakStyle.Enabled = true;

   // Show scale break if more than 25% of the chart is empty space.
   chart1.ChartAreas["ChartArea1"].AxisY.ScaleBreakStyle.CollapsibleSpaceThreshold = 25;

   // Set the line width of the scale break.
   chart1.ChartAreas["ChartArea1"].AxisY.ScaleBreakStyle.LineWidth = 2;

   // Set the color of the scale break.
   chart1.ChartAreas["ChartArea1"].AxisY.ScaleBreakStyle.LineColor = Color.Red;

   // If all data points are significantly far from zero, the chart will calculate the scale minimum value.
   chart1.ChartAreas["ChartArea1"].AxisY.ScaleBreakStyle.StartFromZero = StartFromZero.Auto;

   // Set the spacing gap between the lines of the scale break (as a percentage of the Y-axis).
    chart1.ChartAreas["ChartArea1"].AxisY.ScaleBreakStyle.Spacing = 2;
}
