When plotting points with the Microsoft Chart control, the scale for the value axis is scaled to represent only the range of numbers needed to display the data points being charted. For example, if the data points you are charting are between 1000 and 1010, the full range of 0 through 1010 is not needed and may not be used.
At times it may be desirable or necessary to specify a custom range for the value axis. Microsoft Chart offers properties that allow the user to customize this setting. To set a custom range, three properties must be set: Auto, Minimum, and Maximum. Below are the steps to create a sample application that demonstrates how to configure the chart's scale programmatically.
