Hi Prince,


Thank you for using Syncfusion Products.


Please refer the below code snippets to achieve your requirement. We have also shared a sample for your reference. Kindly refer to this and let us know if your requirement is achieved.


Code snippet:


if (chart.SecondaryValueAxis != null)

     chart.SecondaryValueAxis.Title = "Secondary Value Axis";


//Here is the code to display secondary axis.

  chart.SecondaryValueAxis.IsMaxCross = true;

  chart.SecondaryCategoryAxis.IsMaxCross = true;

Please let us know if you need any clarification.

This may work fine only for two Y axes. But in my requirement I have to plot a chart with  more than two Y axes. It depends on the number of values I get from some Web service.
How to acheive this?

Thanks for help in advance

Hi Mahesh,


Thank you for updating us.


By default, MS Excel supports plotting primary and secondary axis alone and XlsIO does the same. There is no support to include more than 2 axes from XlsIO.


Please let us know if you have any concerns.



Prakash Kumar.
