I have an MSChart control that reads data from text files and displays a 2D line chart. I have couple of questions:

1. I can change the scale on vertical axis, but can not change on X Axis. How do I change the scale on X-axis?

2. I would like to display series labels on the chart. I don't know how to...

Thanks in advance.

mani_ravipati,

1) If you are using a line graph, changing the scale may not have much of an effect. It may be better to use an x-y chart type. To set the scale use:

Chart1.Plot.Axis(VtChAxisIdX).ValueScale.Minimum = 0
Chart1.Plot.Axis(VtChAxisIdX).ValueScale.Maximum = 100
Chart1.Plot.Axis(VtChAxisIdX).ValueScale.MajorDivision = 5
Chart1.Plot.Axis(VtChAxisIdX).ValueScale.MinorDivision = 4

To set a scale of 0-100 with major markers every 20 and minor every 5. (The division is the number of markers within the relevant scale).

2) I don't think you can show a series label as such. You can set the legend to display and set the text for each series using:

Chart1.Plot.SeriesCollection(1).LegendText = "My Series One"

TimCottee,

thank you for the reply.
My main concern was to find a way to show the series labels on the chart itself, as i have many series to plot....displaying the legend was second option.. looks like i have to make it my only option now..

when i set the markers as u mentioned, the x-axis labels were aligned in wrong direction.

thank again.
