Chart Control and Dates give strange results

If I take a chart control and drop it on the form then add the following to form load: ChartSeries s= chartControl1.Model.NewSeries("Licenses",ChartSeriesType.Area); s.Points.Add(Convert.ToDateTime("4/4/2004 12:00:00"),81); s.Points.Add(Convert.ToDateTime("4/11/2004 12:00:00"),84); s.Points.Add(Convert.ToDateTime("4/18/2004 12:00:00"),82); s.Points.Add(Convert.ToDateTime("4/25/2004 12:00:00"),87); s.Points.Add(Convert.ToDateTime("5/2/2004 12:00:00"),94); s.Points.Add(Convert.ToDateTime("5/9/2004 12:00:00"),104); s.Points.Add(Convert.ToDateTime("5/16/2004 12:00:00"),112); s.Points.Add(Convert.ToDateTime("5/23/2004 12:00:00"),112); s.Points.Add(Convert.ToDateTime("6/1/2004 12:00:00"),116); s.Points.Add(Convert.ToDateTime("6/6/2004 12:00:00"),116); s.Points.Add(Convert.ToDateTime("6/13/2004 12:00:00"),127); chartControl1.Series.Add(s); chartControl1.Legend.Visible=false; chartControl1.PrimaryXAxis.ValueType=ChartValueType.DateTime; I would expect it to give me the dates along the bottom, no? I''m using 2.0.5.1.

Thanks for asking this Eric, as I''m having the dilemna with 2.0.6.0. I do this: ChartSeries cs = this.m_ChartControl.Model.NewSeries(string.Format("{0} Product Projection", nYear), ChartSeriesType.Bar); cs.Points.Add(new DateTime(nYear, 1, 1), Convert.ToDouble(drv["productproj"])); cs.Text = cs.Name; cs.Type = ChartSeriesType.Column; I''ve got these settings for the x axis: PrimaryXAxis.ValueType = ChartValueType.DateTime; PrimaryXAxis.IntervalType = ChartDateTimeIntervalType.Years; PrimaryXAxis.DateTimeFormat = "yyyy"; And I get 1899 for each column. What''s up with that?

Hi, Please add this line to set the Indexed mode to false and the values will be interpreted properly: this.chartControl1.Indexed = false; It would also help to rotate the labels along the X axis to prevent them from overlapping: this.chartControl1.PrimaryXAxis.LabelRotate = true; this.chartControl1.PrimaryXAxis.LabelRotateAngle = 90; Thank you for your patience. Regards, Davis

Doh!
