Hi, I'm currently working a custom built tool that builds line charts for our clients. One of our clients as requested that when data points/lines are plotted along the x-axis that the data is placed on top of the x-axis so it is easy to see (attached photo). I've been doing some searching but I haven't found any examples or discussions on how to get the series to render on top of the axis so that you can see the points clearly. Can I get the series points (in the attached photo it would be the x's representing the data points) to render on top of the axis so you can see them better?

never mind. Found the answer.

Basically since the chart.PlotArea.XAxis.Layout options aren't available for the YAxis I emulated them using the
chart.PlotArea.YAxis.AxisMode = ChartYAxisMode.Extended.

Note: for some reason in my code I had to add YAxisMin--; and YAxisMax++; in order for the ChartYAxisMode.Extended to register.
(I did a YAxisMin--; because our charts don't have to go from 0 to infinity. Often times we have charts on both positive and negative YAxis)
