public class TickMark : Grid

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodTickMark()

Initializes a new instance of the TickMark class.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubpropertyEnabled

Gets or sets a flag that determines whether major or minor grid lines are enabled.(Inherited from Grid.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyInterval

Gets or sets the interval between major or minor grid lines.(Inherited from Grid.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyIntervalOffset

Gets or sets the offset of grid lines.(Inherited from Grid.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyIntervalOffsetType

Gets or sets the interval offset type of major and minor grid lines.(Inherited from Grid.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyIntervalType

Gets or sets the interval type for major or minor grid lines.(Inherited from Grid.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyLineColor

Gets or sets the line color of a grid.(Inherited from Grid.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyLineDashStyle

Gets or sets the line style of a grid.(Inherited from Grid.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyLineWidth

Gets or sets the line width of major and minor grid lines.(Inherited from Grid.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertySize

Gets or sets the length of tick marks. The length is measured in units that represent a percentage of the height or width of the chart image, depending on the axis.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyTickMarkStyle

Gets or sets the tick mark style.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(Object)

Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_protmethodFinalize()

Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetHashCode()

Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_protmethodMemberwiseClone()

Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

The TickMark class encapsulates the functionality for all chart tick marks.

The TickMark class is exposed as the MajorTickMark and MinorTickMark properties of Axis objects.

By default, major tick marks are displayed at the major grid lines, whereas minor tick marks must be explicitly displayed.

MajorTickMark.Interval is not set (Double.NaN) by default, and the tick marks are drawn according to Interval. MinorTickMark.Interval is set to Auto (0) by default, and the Chart control automatically determines the interval.

A developer can use this class to:

  • Enable or disable tick marks.

  • Set the color, width, length and line style of tick marks.

  • Specify a style that determines whether tick marks are displayed outside the axis, inside the axis or across the axis.

  • Specify the starting point—where the first tick mark is drawn—as well as the tick mark interval, which correlates to their frequency.
