I am having some issues making the X axis label frequency automatic.
I am using a bar chart and even with IsAutoMajor = true the labels are all bunched up together
I have read several threads regarding the Chart IsAutoMajor having issues, do i have to use this feature in confunction with some else to make it work, as it doesn't appear to.
I can change the tick mark spacing and it does space out the labels correctly but i need it to be automatic.
