I am trying to add paddings to the both ends of the Xaxis, so the beginning and the end labels and data points could display. I see the paddings were added to the graph, but the labels on the XAxis are off, should start at Jan-06, and end at Sep-06, the grid also doesn't line up with the lable. Here is the code snippet, can you advise what I should do to get this right?

public void paddingXAxis(double offset, ChartControl myChart, ChartDateTimeIntervalType intervalType, int interval, string xaxisFormat)
DateTime dateMin=DateTime.Now,dateMax=DateTime.Now;
int dataCount = myChart.Series[0].SeriesModelImpl.Count;

if (dataCount > 0)
dateMin = DateTime.FromOADate(myChart.Series[0].SeriesModelImpl.GetX(0));
dateMax = DateTime.FromOADate(myChart.Series[0].SeriesModelImpl.GetX(dataCount-1));
int monthDiff = dateMax.Month - dateMin.Month;
int yrDiff = dateMax.Year - dateMin.Year;

if(yrDiff > 0)
monthDiff = monthDiff + 12*yrDiff;

case ChartDateTimeIntervalType.Days: break;
case ChartDateTimeIntervalType.Months:
myChart.PrimaryXAxis.Offset = offset;
myChart.PrimaryXAxis.Range.Max += 2 * offset;
for(int i = 0; i <= monthDiff; i+=interval)
ChartAxisLabel lable = new ChartAxisLabel(i.ToString(), Color.Black, new Font("Arial",10,FontStyle.Bold), dateMin, xaxisFormat,xaxisFormat);

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion Products.

Please try to apply following code snippet for adding the paddings to the both ends of the axis.

[ C# ]

private void PaddingBothEnd(ChartAxis axis, double offset)

double min = axis.Range.Min ;
double max =axis.Range.Max ;
double interval = axis.Range.Interval;


axis.Range.Min -= (interval*offset );
axis.Range.Max += (interval*offset );

axis.TickLabelsDrawingMode = ChartAxisTickLabelDrawingMode.UserMode ;
if (axis.ValueType == ChartValueType.DateTime)
for(double i=min;i<=max;i+=interval)
axis.Labels.Add(new ChartAxisLabel(DateTime.FromOADate (i).ToString(axis.DateTimeFormat) , Color.Black , new Font("Times New Roman", 12), i, "", ChartValueType.Custom));
if (axis.ValueType == ChartValueType.Double)
for (double i = min; i <= max; i += interval)
axis.Labels.Add(new ChartAxisLabel(i.ToString(), Color.Black, new Font("Times New Roman", 12), i, "", ChartValueType.Custom));


Please have a look at this sample and let me know if this helps you.

Hi Rajesh,

It works using the code you provided. Many thanks!

can you also take a look at the other issue that the data point doesn't line up with the bar, I tried the way you suggested, but it didn't work.

I have updated your query regarding data point doesn't line up with the bar in the Forum-#59033 which you posted with regard to this query.

Kindly refer the update in that forum.

Thanks & Regards,
