Need padding to right/left on line chart

Refer to the attached .zip file, which has a screen grab.

The chart has a line, and point annotations are added to the line. Works fine, looks as I want--mostly.

The problem is that the line marks cannot be read for the first and last point.

The only solution I can find is to add RangePadding="Additional" to the date axis (X-axis). But this is a bad solution because it adss *too much* extra space on the left and right, making the chart look very strange.  What's needed is a way to add some padding on the x-axis so the ends of the lines can be seen (and so the annotated marks can be fully read).  For comparison, try this in Tableau--that product automatically adds enough space to make the chart perfectly readable.

Can this *small* amount of extra space be padded without the excessive space added by RangePadding=Additional?

Hi Rob,

We are having another property called PlotOffset, which will be suitable for your requirement. This property will give an offset inside the plot area and its value based on pixels, so we can give the space as per your convenience.

Code snippet:


    <chart:DateTimeAxis LabelFormat="yyyy" PlotOffset="10" Header="Product"/>


Note : The RangePadding property will be useful, when required the spacing(padding) based on our axis values.

Please let us know if you require further assistance on this.

The plotoffset works well for the right side of the axis.  But it does not affect the left side of the axis!
I have a data range (24 + months) for the x axis with 2 columns per month.  With plotoffset(20) i can now see the 2 columns on the farthest right-hand side.  But I still have the issue on the furthest left side point of the axis.  I attached a picture for your reference.

Hi Steve,

We have analyzed the reported query. If the segment’s y-value is either 0 or NaN means the empty space will be left for that segment, so that the space differs in left and right side.

Please let us know, if you need any further assistance on this.
