3d Charts


Recommended Posts



Please note that while Chart FX does include a Surface gallery, it does not support a real z axis. When working in surface,both the  Z and X axes behave basically  categorical axes that plot against the index of the series and point respectively. In other words, when you pass a point to the chart as follows:


series is the value on Z, point is the value on X and value is the actual Y value to plot.

To get more details on how Surface works. I recommend going over the "Surface and Contour" page in the Samples and Resource Center under "Programmers Guide > Gallery Types > Surface and Contour".

Additionally, you can plot this code in your app to get a quick surface chart going:


i, j;chart1.Gallery = ChartFX.WinForms.Gallery.Surface;

chart1.Data.Series = 20;

chart1.Data.Points = 20;

((ChartFX.WinForms.Galleries.Surface)(this.chart1.GalleryAttributes)).ShowContourLines = true;

this.chart1.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(29, 27);this.chart1.View3D.Enabled = true;

this.chart1.View3D.Rotated = true;chart1.LegendBox.Visible = false;for (i = 0; i < 20; i++)


chart1.View3D.Depth = 100;

chart1.Series.Text = i.ToString();

for (j = 0; j < 20; j++)

chart1.Data[i, j] = (System.

Math.Sin((i * 2 * 3.1416) / 19) * System.Math.Cos(((j + 5) * 2 * 3.1416) / 19)) * 100;


Hope this helps.
