Using DateTime with the ASP.net/C# Chart Control

Hi,

I am having trouble with DateTimes in ASP.net Charting control. I want a graph with time across the bottom and then values as the Y values.

I have stubbed a program below for you to see where I am so far, the problem being the graph only uses the Date and not the Time also. This is obviously not very useful to me, as I end up with the same Date written along the XAxis and no way to see the time.

I have looked around for the answer to this and can't find it anywhere, so any help appreciated.
Series series1 = new Series("Input");
            
            series1.ChartType = SeriesChartType.Line;
            
            Random r = new Random();
            Double prev = 10;
            Double change = 10;
            for (int x = 0; x < 10; x++)
            {
                change = prev - 0.5 + r.NextDouble();
                
                series1.Points.AddXY(DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(x), change);
                prev = change;
            }
            series1.ToolTip = "#VALX";
            Chart1.Series.Add(series1);

you can alter the appeareance of the DateTime object by applying AxisX label style formating like below:

hope this helps!
Chart1.ChartAreas[0].AxisX.LabelStyle.Format = "dd/MM hh:mm";
