Bubble chart to accomodate negative values for X and Y axis


Recommended Posts

I have a requirement for drawing a Bubble Chart in windows application (VB.NET 2.0, Visual studio 2005). The requirement is that the application provides the negative values also for X and Y min/max values. Normal Bubble charts support only within the box. But, here the chart may be out of the box, I mean it goes to negative axis also.

 I need code for this. Can any one help in this please?


Thanks in advance,

 Not sure what you mean. Bubble charts work the same as other charts, supporting negative as well as positive values.

chart1.Gallery = Gallery.Bubble;chart1.Data.Series = 2;chart1.Data.Points = 4;chart1.Data.Y[0, 0] = 10;chart1.Data.Y[0, 1] = -10;chart1.Data.Y[0, 2] = -10;chart1.Data.Y[0, 3] = 10;chart1.Data.X[0, 0] = 10;chart1.Data.X[0, 1] = 10;chart1.Data.X[0, 2] = -10;chart1.Data.X[0, 3] = -10;chart1.Data.Y[1, 0] = 10;chart1.Data.Y[1, 1] = 10;chart1.Data.Y[1, 2] = 10;chart1.Data.Y[1, 3] = 10;chart1.AxisX.Max = 15;chart1.AxisX.Min = -15;chart1.AxisY.Max = 15;chart1.AxisY.Min = -15;

 I am sorry for not being clear. My requirement is as follows:

I have to draw a bubble chart with the min value as -100 and maximum value=400 both for X and Y axis.

The chart should be divided into 5 rows and 5 columns.

Application will pass X and Y values.

Now it should plot the bubble at that point where X and Y axis is specified.

Kindly help me in this.

Thanks in advance,

I have tested whatever you have sent to me.

I do not have mockup screen for this.

I am still sorry for not being clear. I want the following:

1. I want to fix the number of rows and columns as 5*5 for a chart

2. Application will have two text boxes one for X value and one for Y value. If I click on submit, that should create a bubble at that position.

I will try to find out the mockup screen too and will attach as soon as I get that.

I am new to this and so all these confusions.

My code as per the requirement is as follows:

Chart1.Gallery = Gallery.Bubble

Chart1.AxisX.Style = ChartFX.WinForms.AxisStyles.NotClipped

Chart1.Titles.Add(New TitleDockable("My Style"))

Chart1.Titles(0).TextColor = Color.Black

Chart1.LegendBox.Visible =


Chart1.Data.Series = 0

'Chart1.Data.Points = 4

Chart1.AxisX.Max = 400

Chart1.AxisX.Min = -100

Chart1.AxisY.Max = 400

Chart1.AxisY.Min = -100

Chart1.AxisX.FirstLabel = 0

Chart1.AxisY.FirstLabel = 0

Chart1.AxisY.LabelAngle = 90

Chart1.AxisX.Step = 100

Chart1.AxisY.Step = 100

'Chart1.AxisY.Labels(0) = ""

Chart1.AxisY.Labels(0) =


Chart1.AxisY.Labels(1) =


Chart1.AxisY.Labels(2) =


Chart1.AxisY.Labels(3) =


Chart1.AxisY.Labels(4) =


Chart1.AxisY.LabelValue = 100

Chart1.AxisX.Labels(0) =

"Deep Value"

Chart1.AxisX.Labels(1) =


Chart1.AxisX.Labels(2) =


Chart1.AxisX.Labels(3) =


Chart1.AxisX.Labels(4) =

"Deep Growth"

Chart1.AxisX.LabelValue = 100

Now the thing is to plot the X and Y values in the chart.
