Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms.DataVisualization (in System.Windows.Forms.DataVisualization.dll)

public IntervalAutoMode IntervalAutoMode { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms.DataVisualization.Charting.IntervalAutoMode

An IntervalAutoMode enumeration value. The default value is FixedCount.

When the Interval property is set to "Auto", the IntervalAutoMode property determines how many intervals should be calculated. If your chart is resized or redrawn often, you can set the IntervalAutoMode property to VariableCount, in which case the chart will dynamically calculate axis intervals. This is especially useful in situations where the chart intervals are displayed differently, depending on their data.
