    Hi there,

    I am building a Spline chart that can show data for a potentially large number of dates on the X-Axis (Y-Axis displays a size for each date). A user can choose a start and an end data to determine the scope for the chart. When hundreds of days are chosen, the X-Axis becomes pretty messy as all labels overlap. This brings me to the following question:

    1. How can I limit the number of items in the X-Axis? I tried MaxItemsCount but that doesn't seem to work OK? (and is not documented)

    2. Are there better ways to do this? E.g. instead of hiding labels in the x-axis, maybe I can group the data? In that case, how do I maintain the smooth line of the chart?

    My ultimate goal is to show the chart line for the entire selected period, and only have a small number (say 10) labels. So when I choose 10 years, I roughly get 10 labels for each year. When I choose a month, each entry represents three days.

    If the on-line examples show this behavior (declarative or programmatically), can you please refer me to the correct one?

    Hello Imar,

    I think you are looking for the LabelStep property. Let us know if that's good enough for you.
