Plot range column chart type with single Y value

A typical range column chart requires two values, high and low, but this feature allows users to plot the range column chart with a single y-value. This is possible when the y-value is considered the delta value for a range column chart and the segments are arranged at the center of the chart area.

Xamarin.iOS range column single y-value support.

Series selection support

Highlight an entire series by touching anywhere on the series.

Custom axis

Add an axis to the chart without mapping it to any series. This is typically used to duplicate a y-axis and display it on the opposite side of the y-axis. The axis can always be kept in the UI even though the respective series is removed or added at runtime.
