    Say I've got 100 points at one point per day. If I plot those points on a DateTimeContinuousAxis with MajorStep set to 1 and MajorStepUnit set to Day, what is the expected behavior if I set MaximumTicks to "10".  I get 100 tick marks (one for each day) regardless of whether MaximumTicks is set to 10 or 1000. 

    Thanks - Mitch

    Hello Mitch,

    Yes, the MaximumTicks property works with the DateTimeContinuousAxis, but note that the MajorStep property has higher priority than the MaximumTicks. In general, when you set the MajorStep property the MaximumTicks will be ignored. This is because if you set both of them the axis won't know which one to use to determine the count of its ticks.

    I hope this information answer your question. Please let me know if you need any further assistance.
