I am plotting data a line on a chart.  I want the Y axis range to stay the same.  The code is below data is changing and so the chart is constantly updating.    How can I fix the Y axis range?

    Chart1.Series.Clear()
    Chart1.Series.Add("Plot")
    Chart1.Series("Plot").ChartType = DataVisualization.Charting.SeriesChartType.FastLine
     For i = 0 To 200
                       Chart1.Series("Plot").Points.AddXY(i, theData.GetValue(i))
     Next (i)

try add something like this?
Chart1.ChartAreas(0).AxisY.Maximum = 200
        Chart1.ChartAreas(0).AxisY.Minimum = 10

That worked thanks.  I was playing with the chart areas, but never found that one.  How do you find these values to change?  Is there a help file or website?

well, I think the best resources would be MSDN?

Chart Class
https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.web.ui.datavisualization.charting.chart(v=vs.110).aspx

try to browse through the left hand side sub links.

for more examples you may do an Internet search instead. hope that helps

got to know the knowledge base is quite huge in MSDN.

first, on the left hand side sub links, i go click the ChartArea class then click ChartArea Properties
after that, i click on AxisY property


which lead you to:

Axis Class

Finally look for the Minimum property there.
