GridLine Annotations

GridLine annotations are lines or circles that cross the chart grid at a location on the axis, specified by their Value property.

Cartesian GridLine Annotation

In the case of RadCartesianChart, the CartesianGridLineAnnotation represents a vertical or horizontal line that crosses the entire plot area.

Example 1: Adding CartesianGridLineAnnotations

<telerik:RadCartesianChart x:Name="cartesianChart"> 
    <telerik:RadCartesianChart.Annotations> 
        <telerik:CartesianGridLineAnnotation Axis="{Binding ElementName=verticalAxis}"  
                                                Value="6" 
                                                Stroke="Red" 
                                                StrokeThickness="1"/> 
        <telerik:CartesianGridLineAnnotation Axis="{Binding ElementName=horizontalAxis}"  
                                                Value="2.8" 
                                                Stroke="Blue" 
                                                StrokeThickness="1"/> 
    </telerik:RadCartesianChart.Annotations> 
 
    <telerik:RadCartesianChart.Series> 
        <telerik:ScatterPointSeries> 
            <telerik:ScatterPointSeries.DataPoints> 
                <telerik:ScatterDataPoint XValue="1" YValue="5"/> 
                <telerik:ScatterDataPoint XValue="3" YValue="2"/> 
                <telerik:ScatterDataPoint XValue="4" YValue="7"/> 
            </telerik:ScatterPointSeries.DataPoints> 
        </telerik:ScatterPointSeries> 
    </telerik:RadCartesianChart.Series> 
 
    <telerik:RadCartesianChart.VerticalAxis> 
        <telerik:LinearAxis x:Name="verticalAxis"/> 
    </telerik:RadCartesianChart.VerticalAxis> 
 
    <telerik:RadCartesianChart.HorizontalAxis> 
        <telerik:LinearAxis x:Name="horizontalAxis"/> 
    </telerik:RadCartesianChart.HorizontalAxis> 
</telerik:RadCartesianChart>

Polar Axis GridLine Annotation

PolarAxisGridLineAnnotations represent concentric circles that cross the polar axis at the corresponding Value.

Example 2: Adding PolarAxisGridLineAnnotation

<telerik:RadPolarChart> 
    <telerik:RadPolarChart.Annotations> 
        <telerik:PolarAxisGridLineAnnotation Value="2" Stroke="Red"/> 
        <telerik:PolarAxisGridLineAnnotation Value="7" Stroke="LightGreen"/> 
        <telerik:PolarAxisGridLineAnnotation Value="8" Stroke="LightBlue"/> 
    </telerik:RadPolarChart.Annotations> 
 
    <telerik:RadPolarChart.Series> 
        <telerik:PolarPointSeries> 
            <telerik:PolarPointSeries.DataPoints> 
                <telerik:PolarDataPoint Value="2" Angle="30"/> 
                <telerik:PolarDataPoint Value="7" Angle="90"/> 
                <telerik:PolarDataPoint Value="8" Angle="230"/> 
            </telerik:PolarPointSeries.DataPoints> 
        </telerik:PolarPointSeries> 
    </telerik:RadPolarChart.Series> 
 
    <telerik:RadPolarChart.RadialAxis> 
        <telerik:NumericRadialAxis/> 
    </telerik:RadPolarChart.RadialAxis> 
 
    <telerik:RadPolarChart.PolarAxis> 
        <telerik:PolarAxis/> 
    </telerik:RadPolarChart.PolarAxis> 
</telerik:RadPolarChart>

Radial Axis GridLine Annotation

RadialAxisGridLineAnnotations basically represent the radius of a RadPolarChart.

Example 3: Defining RadialAxisGridLineAnnotation

<telerik:RadPolarChart> 
    <telerik:RadPolarChart.Annotations> 
        <telerik:RadialAxisGridLineAnnotation Value="30" Stroke="Red"/> 
        <telerik:RadialAxisGridLineAnnotation Value="60" Stroke="LightGreen"/> 
        <telerik:RadialAxisGridLineAnnotation Value="90" Stroke="LightBlue"/> 
    </telerik:RadPolarChart.Annotations> 
 
    <telerik:RadPolarChart.Series> 
        <telerik:PolarPointSeries> 
            <telerik:PolarPointSeries.DataPoints> 
                <telerik:PolarDataPoint Value="2" Angle="30"/> 
                <telerik:PolarDataPoint Value="7" Angle="90"/> 
                <telerik:PolarDataPoint Value="8" Angle="230"/> 
            </telerik:PolarPointSeries.DataPoints> 
        </telerik:PolarPointSeries> 
    </telerik:RadPolarChart.Series> 
 
    <telerik:RadPolarChart.RadialAxis> 
        <telerik:NumericRadialAxis/> 
    </telerik:RadPolarChart.RadialAxis> 
 
    <telerik:RadPolarChart.PolarAxis> 
        <telerik:PolarAxis/> 
    </telerik:RadPolarChart.PolarAxis> 
</telerik:RadPolarChart>

Properties

Common:

  • DashArray : Gets or sets a collection of System.Double values that indicate the pattern of dashes and gaps that is used to outline annotations.

  • Stroke : Gets or sets the System.Windows.Media.Brush that specifies how the annotations outline is painted.

  • StrokeThickness : Gets or sets the width of the annotations stroke outline.

CartesianGridLineAnnotation:

  • Axis : The CartesianGridLineAnnotation needs to be associated with horizontal or vertical axis explicitly.

  • Value (of type object) : The place on the associated axis where the annotation crosses it. When the associated axis is numerical (Linear or Logarithmic) a numeric value is expected and when it is a CategoricalAxis - a category.

  • Label : The string that is displayed in the label.

  • LabelDefinition : Defines the position of the annotation label. Check the Annotation Labels help topic for more details.

PolarAxisGridLineAnnotations:

  • Value (of type double) : Specifies the location on the polar axis (the radius), where the grid line will cross.

RadialAxisGridLineAnnotation:

  • Value (of type object) : Specifies the location on the radial axis, where the grid line will cross. When the radial axis is NumericRadialAxis a numeric value is expected and when it is a CategoricalRadialAxis - a category.
