    Good use of axis to change the range of the graph. Within the same scope, can a particular type of axis (e.g. DateTimeAxis) be extended to include more specific features e.g. in the DateTimeAxis make the Range as a TimeSpan so we can include a Timespan within a particular date, for multiple dates.

    Most of the Charting classes are currently sealed to prevent customers from deriving from them before we’re more confident that we won’t be changing things dramatically in a future release. However, the source code is open source, so if you’d like to try adding something like this yourself, you’re welcome to unseal things and try it out. I know of a number of different folks who have already done this and had success with it.

    Hope this helps!
