Binding to an ilist and formatting primary axis

I am using a iList of objects containing(among other data) the following data

MeasureName - string
WeekStartDate - DateTime
Data - Decimal

I've setup the report as
olapReport.CurrentCubeName = "Testing";
olapReport.CategoricalElements.Add(new Item { ItemName = "MeasureName" });
olapReport.SeriesElements.Add(new Item { ItemName = "WeekStartDate" });
SummaryElements summaries = new SummaryElements();
summaries.Add(new SummaryInfo { Column = "Data", Key = "Data", Type = SummaryType.Sum });
olapReport.SeriesElements.Add(new Item { ElementValue = summaries });

The problems I am getting are mostly with formatting. On the primary Axis I see the WeekStartDate across the bottom, but it is in full date format. How do I change it to short date? I've tried olapChart1.PrimaryAxis.LabelDateTimeFormat="d", but this doesn't work. Also, how do I get the intervals to work. I can find no documentation on this, in fact I'm dissapointed with documentation on the whole for this product. It's quite anemic. How do I rotate the angle on the primary axis? I've tried LabelRotateAngle, but that doesn't work. In fact the only formatting on the axis that I have been able to do is setting the brush for the foreground/background.

Hi David,

Customizing Primary Axis:

The customization of Label Formatting, Intervals and Rotate Angle are available only in our Secondary Axis(since it is a ChartCartesianAxis). But the Primary Axis is a new Char taxis and it does not support these customizations. Please open a new Direct trac incident, We will implement these features in Primary Axis and update you the service pack.

Improving Documentation:

We regret for the poor documentation. We have taken a note of all the points that you have mentioned here and will certainly try to improve the documentation for our upcoming versions.
