StripLine.TextLineAlignment Property

Gets or sets the text line alignment of strip line text.

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

[PersistenceModeAttribute(PersistenceMode.Attribute)]
[BindableAttribute(true)]
public StringAlignment TextLineAlignment { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Drawing.StringAlignment
A StringAlignment value that represents the alignment of the text line.

The following code example demonstrates how to add a threshold line after the chart control has been added to the design surface. The chart uses a non-recurring strip line to show a calculation of the mean of all data points in a series.

public partial class StripLines : System.Web.UI.Page 
    {
        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {            
            // Add chart data
            AddChartData();

            // Adds a threshold line using strip lines.
            AddThresholdStripLine();
        }

        /// <summary>
        /// Adds a week of data with values between 20 and 35.
        /// </summary>
        private void AddChartData()
        {
            // Declare new random variable
            Random rand = new Random();

            // Add a week of data
            for (int i = 0; i < 7; i++) 
            {
                chart1.Series[0].Points.AddXY(DateTime.Now.AddDays(i), rand.Next(20,35));
            }
        }

        /// <summary>
        /// Adds a horizontal threshold strip line at the calculated mean 
        /// value of all data points in the first series of the chart.
        /// </summary>
        private void AddThresholdStripLine()
        {
            StripLine stripLine3 = new StripLine();

            // Set threshold line so that it is only shown once
            stripLine3.Interval = 0;

            // Set the threshold line to be drawn at the calculated mean of the first series
            stripLine3.IntervalOffset = chart1.DataManipulator.Statistics.Mean(chart1.Series[0].Name);

            stripLine3.BackColor = Color.DarkGreen;
            stripLine3.StripWidth = 0.25;

            // Set text properties for the threshold line
            stripLine3.Text = "Mean";
            stripLine3.ForeColor = Color.Black;
            stripLine3.TextAlignment = StringAlignment.Near;
            stripLine3.TextLineAlignment = StringAlignment.Near;
            stripLine3.TextOrientation = TextOrientation.Auto;


            // Add strip line to the chart
            chart1.ChartAreas[0].AxisY.StripLines.Add(stripLine3);
        }
    }
