Represents the coordinates of a three-dimensional (3D) data point. This class is used when performing custom drawing with 3D charts.
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms.DataVisualization (in System.Windows.Forms.DataVisualization.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|Equals(Object)||Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetHashCode||Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
Any point used in custom 3D drawing—which is accomplished using GDI+—must be transformed from relative X, Y and Z (3D) coordinates into relative X and Y (2D) coordinates using the TransformPoints method. By calling TransformPoints, the X and Y-values of the objects are changed so that they reflect the 3-dimensional space. The new X and Y points can then be used for GDI+ method calls—the Z value is then disregarded—after being changed to absolute pixel coordinates using the GetAbsolutePoint method.
Note that the Z coordinate may be less than zero (located behind a chart area) or greater than 100 (located in front of a chart area).
To both enable 3D charts and work with their styles, use the Area3DStyle property. The class is not used for 3D styles.
