C# - ZedGraph Properties - Scale to Default.

ocaccy asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
What is wrong?
The chart is mounted! But the data does not show.
Information has to plot.

  int id01 = -30;
            int id02 = -70;
            int id03 = 0;
            int id04 = -20;
            int id05 = -10;
            int id06 = 10;


If you click the right mouse button and choose Set Scale to Default, the points appear on the graph.
How do graphic normally be shown?
