Scatter Line Chart

Expanded Short Description

The Scatter Line Chart is represented by the ScatterLineSeriesView object, which belongs to Point and Line Series Views. This series view displays series points in the same order they were added to the collection. That is, in contrast to other view types that sort their points by arguments, and some aggregate points with equal arguments into a single entry along the X-axis. A good example is the view type that is most similar in all other aspects - Line. The Scatter Line Chart can also be compared to the Point Chart with the points connected by lines.

For example, the following image demonstrates a Scatter Line Chart, representing a graph for the Archimedean spiral.

Note

Expanded Example

The following example demonstrates how to create a ChartControl with a series of the ScatterLineSeriesView type, and add this chart to a form at runtime. Note that for this particular scale type only, it's typical that series points aren't sorted by their arguments, but are instead displayed in the order in which they are added to the collection.

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.
