Public Property IntervalType As DateTimeIntervalType

Property Value


The interval type for the cursor and selected range of an axis.



The IntervalType property determines the type of interval, which is specified using the Interval property.

If the interval type is Auto, the unit of measurement for the interval is treated as a double, which is equivalent to one day when DateTime values are specified.


Interval-related properties have no effect when a range selection or cursor position is set programmatically.

If the axis interval type represents a time - for example, hours, minutes, and so forth - then in order to correctly enable the zooming function, the IntervalType must also be set to a time value. For example, if the ChartArea1.AxisX.IntervalType is expressed in hours, then the ChartArea1.CursorX.IntervalType could be set to minutes.
