# PlotBand Annotations

Plot Band Annotation is a stripe, crossing its corresponding axis, specified by the From and To properties.

## Cartesian PlotBand Annotation

Cartesian PlotBand annotation is either a horizontal or a vertical stripe that crosses from start to end the vertical or the horizontal axis respectively.

Here is what CartesianPlotBandAnnotation looks like:

``````<telerik:CartesianPlotBandAnnotation From="4.3" To="5.5" Axis="{Binding ElementName=verticalAxis}"/>
<telerik:CartesianPlotBandAnnotation From="0.5" To="1.5" Axis="{Binding ElementName=horizontalAxis}"/>
`````` ## Polar Axis PlotBand Annotation

The Polar axis PlotBand annotation resembles a donut.

Here is what PolarAxisPlotBandAnnotation looks like:

``````<telerik:PolarAxisPlotBandAnnotation From="6" To="9"/>
`````` ## Radial Axis PlotBand Annotation

Radial Axis PlotBand annotations represent visually a sector of the circle (pie slice).

A plotband starting from 180 degrees and ending in 270 degrees will look like this:

``````<telerik:RadialAxisPlotBandAnnotation From="270" To="180" />
`````` If you wonder how to annotate the bigger segment from the image above, then you should switch the From and To values.

``````<telerik:RadialAxisPlotBandAnnotation From="270" To="180" />

Common:

• Fill

• DashArray

• Stroke

• StrokeThickness

Cartesian:

• Axis The Cartesian PlotBand annotation needs to be associated with horizontal or vertical axis explicitly.

• From (of type object) The starting point for the plot band. When the associated axis is numerical (Linear or Logarithmic) a numeric value is expected and when it is a CategoricalAxis - a category.

• To (of type object) The ending point for the plot band.*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, defining the label.

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

Polar:

• From (of type double) The starting point for the plot band. To (of type double) The ending point for the plot band.
