Excel.ChartGridlines class

Represents major or minor gridlines on a chart axis.

[ API set: ExcelApi 1.1 ]

Extends
OfficeExtension.ClientObject

Properties

context

The request context associated with the object. This connects the add-in's process to the Office host application's process.

format

Represents the formatting of chart gridlines. Read-only.

[ API set: ExcelApi 1.1 ]

visible

Boolean value representing if the axis gridlines are visible or not.

[ API set: ExcelApi 1.1 ]

Methods

load(options)

Queues up a command to load the specified properties of the object. You must call context.sync() before reading the properties.

load(propertyNames)

Queues up a command to load the specified properties of the object. You must call context.sync() before reading the properties.

load(propertyNamesAndPaths)

Queues up a command to load the specified properties of the object. You must call context.sync() before reading the properties.

set(properties, options)

Sets multiple properties of an object at the same time. You can pass either a plain object with the appropriate properties, or another API object of the same type.

set(properties)

Sets multiple properties on the object at the same time, based on an existing loaded object.

toJSON()

Overrides the JavaScript toJSON() method in order to provide more useful output when an API object is passed to JSON.stringify(). (JSON.stringify, in turn, calls the toJSON method of the object that is passed to it.) Whereas the original Excel.ChartGridlines object is an API object, the toJSON method returns a plain JavaScript object (typed as Excel.Interfaces.ChartGridlinesData) that contains shallow copies of any loaded child properties from the original object.

Examples

// Get the visible of Major Gridlines on value axis of Chart1
Excel.run(function (ctx) { 
    var chart = ctx.workbook.worksheets.getItem("Sheet1").charts.getItem("Chart1");    
    var majGridlines = chart.axes.valueaxis.majorGridlines;
    majGridlines.load('visible');
    return ctx.sync().then(function() {
            console.log(majGridlines.visible);
    });
}).catch(function(error) {
    console.log("Error: " + error);
    if (error instanceof OfficeExtension.Error) {
        console.log("Debug info: " + JSON.stringify(error.debugInfo));
    }
});
// Set to show major gridlines on valueAxis of Chart1
Excel.run(function (ctx) { 
    var chart = ctx.workbook.worksheets.getItem("Sheet1").charts.getItem("Chart1");    
    chart.axes.valueAxis.majorGridlines.visible = true;
    return ctx.sync().then(function() {
            console.log("Axis Gridlines Added ");
    });
}).catch(function(error) {
    console.log("Error: " + error);
    if (error instanceof OfficeExtension.Error) {
        console.log("Debug info: " + JSON.stringify(error.debugInfo));
    }
});

load(propertyNamesAndPaths)

Queues up a command to load the specified properties of the object. You must call context.sync() before reading the properties.

load(propertyNamesAndPaths?: {
            select?: string;
            expand?: string;
        }): Excel.ChartGridlines;

Parameters

propertyNamesAndPaths
{ select?: string; expand?: string; }

propertyNamesAndPaths.select is a comma-delimited string that specifies the properties to load, and propertyNamesAndPaths.expand is a comma-delimited string that specifies the navigation properties to load.

Returns

set(properties, options)

Sets multiple properties of an object at the same time. You can pass either a plain object with the appropriate properties, or another API object of the same type.

set(properties: Interfaces.ChartGridlinesUpdateData, options?: OfficeExtension.UpdateOptions): void;

Parameters

properties
Interfaces.ChartGridlinesUpdateData

A JavaScript object with properties that are structured isomorphically to the properties of the object on which the method is called.

options
OfficeExtension.UpdateOptions

Provides an option to suppress errors if the properties object tries to set any read-only properties.

Returns

void

Remarks

This method has the following additional signature:

set(properties: Excel.ChartGridlines): void

set(properties)

Sets multiple properties on the object at the same time, based on an existing loaded object.

set(properties: Excel.ChartGridlines): void;

Parameters

Returns

void
