XyDataSeries when querying for series’ XMax on a series with no values, I get DateTime.MinValue, and when querying for XMin on a series with no values, I get DateTime.MaxValue. Shouldn’t it be the other way around?
Same thing for YMax and YMin on that series… I get the negative number as the YMax and viceversa.

Hi there,

DataSeries use these values internally to calculate Max and Min. For instance, if you have DataSeries<double, double> then YMax is set to Double.MinValue. This is so when the dataseries calculates YMax = Math.Max(YMax, y) it will always take Y after the first data-point is added.

May I ask, does it cause any specific problems? If so please treat DateTime.MinValue/MaxValue as ‘invalid values’.

Kind regards,
