Chart.AntiAliasing Property

Gets or sets a value that determines whether anti-aliasing is used when text and graphics are drawn.

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

public AntiAliasingStyles AntiAliasing { get; set; }
<asp:Chart AntiAliasing="AntiAliasingStyles" />

Anti-aliasing smoothens out "jagged edges" by padding pixels with intermediate colors, and is especially effective for smoothing out edges for charts that are not drawn as rectangles. For example, anti-aliasing is very effective for line charts and pie charts, but is not as effective for bar and column charts.

Anti-aliasing can be applied to text and/or graphics primitives such as rectangles, circles, and so forth.

Note that anti-aliasing will affect performance.
