Step Line Chart

Expanded Short Description

The Step Line Chart is represented by the StepLine3DSeriesView object, which belongs to Line Series Views. This view is useful when you need to show to what extent values have changed for different points in the same series. Also, you can set the StepLine3DSeriesView.InvertedStep property to true to specify whether these steps are shown as inverted or not.

A Step Line chart is shown in the image below.

The table below lists the main characteristics of this chart type.

Expanded Example

The following example demonstrates how to create a ChartControl with a series of the StepLine3DSeriesView type, set its general properties, and add this chart to a form at runtime. Before proceeding with this example, first create a Windows Forms Application in Visual Studio, and include all necessary assemblies to the References list of your project.

Then, add the following code to the Form.Load event handler.
