AxisScaleBreakStyle.BreakLineStyle Property

.NET Framework (current version)
 

Gets or sets the style of the break line that will be used to draw the scale break.

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

public BreakLineStyle BreakLineStyle { get; set; }

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;
}
