Property Value

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

An AntiAliasingStyles enumeration value that determines whether anti-aliasing is used when text and graphics are drawn.

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.
