this.chartControl1.PrimaryXAxis.LabelIntersectAction = ChartLabelIntersectAction.Rotate;

this.chartControl1.PrimaryXAxis.ValueType = ChartValueType.DateTime;

// Specifying RangeType


this.chartControl1.PrimaryXAxis.DateTimeRange = new ChartDateTimeRange(start, start.AddDays(42), 7, ChartDateTimeIntervalType.Days);

this.chartControl1.PrimaryXAxis.DateTimeInterval.Type = ChartDateTimeIntervalType.Days;

this.chartControl1.PrimaryXAxis.DateTimeFormat = "dd,MMM, dddd";
