    I have charts where, at maximum, I could have around 60 data points to show. While this is not that much point, showing all the category labels is too much. Therefore I'm using the "baseUnitStep" to auto, with a maxDateGroups of 20. However, when I do this, I have great results for category label, but as a consequence, data points in between are no longer drawn in the chart (and I cannot any longer show their tooltip).

    I've tried to played with the various baseStep, baseUnitStep... settings, but cannot find the right setting to have the best of both world: automatically draw few labels, but still render all the data points.

    How can I achieve that? :)

    Hi Michaël,

    You can add one more categoryAxis with the desired configuration for labels. The first one should be the "points axis" and you should hide it. The problem in this scenario is that the valueAxis and categoryAxis will be a little misaligned.
