Thank you for the valuable feedback. At the moment, there's an issue in the chart that prevents it from automatically refreshing when a new data point has been added. It means that you will have to recreate the chart for every new data point. This issue will be fixed for the upcoming official release though.
"...but I still need some control over whether the chart tracks the newly incoming points or not."
Could you please elaborate a bit more on the above statement. Does it mean that you want to manually refresh the chart whenever is most appropriate?
