One possible option in this case would be to zoom in through code when the control is first rendered. This can be done by using the api of the chart. More information on this is available in the following topic:
You can also couple this logic with the underlying data - for example checking how many entries you have, prior to applying the zoom/scroll settings.
I hope this gets you started properly.
