Summary: In this video, we discuss more about the Chart control. After looking at the chart we created in previous video (names and vacation hours), we decided to add more features to the chart. We added a StripLine in the ChartArea section. Then we changed some of the properties for this StripLine in the code behind by displaying the mean. We got the mean from the DataManipulator.Statistics. We also added a lable under the chart that displays the value of the mean.
After that we went over the long list of the chart properties. We looked at legends, BackGradientStyle, BorderlineColor, and BorderSkin (setting the SkinStyle property on this gave the chart a round border).
Methodology of the development of example: Good coding standard and simplified design to illustrate the key points.
