AxisBound class

Represents minimum or maximum bound of axis values.

public sealed class AxisBound


Name Description
AxisBound() Creates a new instance indicating that axis bound should be determined automatically by a word-processing application.
AxisBound(DateTime) Creates an axis bound represented as datetime value.
AxisBound(double) Creates an axis bound represented as a number.


Name Description
IsAuto { get; } Returns a flag indicating that axis bound should be determined automatically.
Value { get; } Returns numeric value of axis bound.
ValueAsDate { get; } Returns value of axis bound represented as datetime.


Name Description
override Equals(object) Determines whether the specified object is equal in value to the current object.
override GetHashCode() Serves as a hash function for this type.
override ToString() Returns a user-friendly string that displays the value of this object.


Bound can be specified as a numeric, datetime or a special “auto” value.

The instances of this class are immutable.
