grAxis objects in Graph controls


The MaxValDateTime property specifies the maximum value for an axis when the axis datatype is date or time. This property is not used if the Autoscale property is enabled.


In a painter

To set the maximum value of an axis with a date or time datatype:

  1. Display the Axis tab page of the graph's Properties view and select the desired axis from the Axis drop-down list.

  2. Make sure that the Autoscale check box is not checked.

  3. Select adtDate!, adtTime!, or adtDateTime! from the DataType drop-down list.

  4. Specify the desired maximum date or time value in the MaximumValue field.

    This value should be larger than the maximum data value being graphed.

In scripts

The MaxValDateTime property takes a value of the DateTime datatype.

The following example sets the MaxValDateTime property for an Axis with a datatype of date:

gr_1.Values.DataType = AdtDate!
gr_1.Values.MaxValDateTime = 12/31/1999
