    Hello Telerik-Team,

    I have a problem with RadChart which I am unable to find a solution for by myself.

    I am populating a RadChart with items which use the "ToOADate()"-Function from a DateTime-Value as the X-Value. I also set the ValueFormat of the X-Axis to ShortDate.

    Depending on filters entered by the user, the timespan of items inside the chart can vary from a couple of hours to months.

    I haven't been able to find a way to display small timespans. I tried both AutoScale=true and AutoScale=false, in the later case setting the Range of the X-Axis with the smallest and largest DateTime from the data I populate the chart with.

    Regardless of what I do, there is always a big gap added to the right and the left part of the Grid, making it impossible to read the chart.
    Attached is an example (the min/max DateTime-Values in this case all are from 30.09.2010, starting at 12:18 up to 15:55).

    What can I do to use the width of the chart more effectively?

    best regards and thanks in advance

    Hello Ulrich,

    In order to make sure that the line properly spanls on the available width, you need to introduce more XAxis values. In this manner, the values will fall into, say 10 categories, instead of only two, and will be more evenly distributed. Other than this, the control strictly adheres to the correspondence between the data and the categories.
    I hope this information helps.
