ChartAxis.AxisBetweenCategories property

Gets or sets a flag indicating whether the value axis crosses the category axis between categories.

public bool AxisBetweenCategories { get; set; }


The property has effect only for value axes. It is not supported by MS Office 2016 new charts.


Shows how to get a graph axis to cross at a custom location.

Document doc = new Document();
DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

Shape shape = builder.InsertChart(ChartType.Column, 450, 250);
Chart chart = shape.Chart;

Assert.AreEqual(3, chart.Series.Count);
Assert.AreEqual("Series 1", chart.Series[0].Name);
Assert.AreEqual("Series 2", chart.Series[1].Name);
Assert.AreEqual("Series 3", chart.Series[2].Name);

// For column charts, the Y-axis crosses at zero by default,
// which means that columns for all values below zero point down to represent negative values.
// We can set a different value for the Y-axis crossing. In this case, we will set it to 3.
ChartAxis axis = chart.AxisX;
axis.Crosses = AxisCrosses.Custom;
axis.CrossesAt = 3;
axis.AxisBetweenCategories = true;
