Chart Elements

The DevExpress WPF Chart control consists of elements which define the chart's appearance and behavior.

This topic lists all these elements and provides detailed information about them.


The Chart Control can hide its elements if there is insufficient space to display them. Elements are hidden in the following order:

  1. Legends
  2. Axis Titles
  3. Series Titles
  4. Pane Titles
  5. Axes
  6. Chart Title
  7. Breadcrumbs

To make the Chart Control always display its elements, disable the ChartControlBase.AutoLayout property.

The Diagram is the main chart's element, and its type determines which series views and additional elements you can add to a chart. It also determines the chart's appearance and features. The Chart control provides the following diagram types:

Expanded 2D XY (Cartesian) Diagram

The following figure represents the XY Diagram structure:

The image below demonstrates the XY Diagram's chart items.

Expanded Simple 2D Diagram

The following figure shows the hierarchy of chart elements you can add to a Simple Diagram:
