How reduce the height of an mschart by breaking up the y-axis

How can I reduce the height of an mschart like this:

[EDIT] In my case I do not want break chart view.

this.chart1.ChartAreas[0].AxisY.ScaleBreakStyle.Enabled = false;</pre>


You seem to be looking for AxisY.ScaleBreakStyle.

Here is an example:

<img src=https://www.e-learn.cn/content/wangluowenzhang/"https://i.stack.imgur.com/hBfIC.png" alt="enter image description here">

Series s = chart1.Series[0]; ChartArea ca = chart1.ChartAreas[0]; Axis ay = ca.AxisY; s.ChartType = SeriesChartType.Line; for (int i = 0; i < 100; i++) s.Points.AddXY(i, rnd.Next(100) + 50 ); s.Points.AddXY(s.Points.Count, 123456); ay.ScaleBreakStyle.Enabled = true; // <<<=== enable or disable! ay.ScaleBreakStyle.LineWidth = 1; ay.ScaleBreakStyle.LineColor = Color.OrangeRed; ay.ScaleBreakStyle.StartFromZero = StartFromZero.Auto; ay.ScaleBreakStyle.Spacing = 2; ay.ScaleBreakStyle.StartFromZero = StartFromZero.Auto;

Note that there a quite a few cases where it will not work. MSDN:

Scale breaks are not supported under any of the following conditions:


    Pie, doughnut, funnel, pyramid, radial or any stacked chart types are used.

    </li> <li>

    Custom intervals for labels, tick marks or grid lines are enabled.

    </li> <li>

    The minimum or maximum value for the axis is set.

    </li> <li>

    Custom labels are used.

    </li> <li>

    A logarithmic Y-axis is specified.

    </li> <li>

    Axis views on the Y-axis, which include scrolling and zooming, are used.

    </li> <li>

    3-D charts are used.

    </li> </ul>

    <strong>Update:</strong> Of course you can also <strong>disable</strong> the break at runtime..
