A strip is an area limited by two fixed values (minimal and maximal limits) on a corresponding axis.

This document contains the following sections:

Expanded How to Add a Strip

The Chart control enables you to add an unlimited number of strips to an x- or y-axis. To add a strip, you need to add a Strip object to the Axis2D.Strips collection and define the strip's minimum and maximum limits. A strip does not display if the minimum limit is not less than the maximum limit, and it would occupy all available space in a diagram if these limits are not specified.

The XAML below shows how to add a strip to a chart:

The example above applies the following classes and properties:

Class or Property Description
Strip A strip.
Axis2D.Strips A collection that stores all strips of an axis.
Strip.MinLimit A value specifying the strip's minimum axis value.
Strip.MaxLimit A value specifying the strip's maximum axis value.

The Strip.AxisLabelText property allows you to specify axis label text for a strip:
