Hi Paolo,

I took a look on your code and found the problem in insertData() method:

 public void insertData() {
    Random random = new Random();

    long xValue = new Date().getTime() + DateIntervalUtil.fromDays(day);
    xValues.add(new Date(xValue));

    //the data values can be appended to the DataSeries
    dataSeries.append(xValues, yValues);


When you append xValues and yValues they contain all previously added values. So first call of insertData() will append 1 data point, second will append 2 points(1 from previous call and 1 new data point), third call will append 3 points(2 from previous call and 1 new data point) and so on.

To fix this issue you just need to clear xValues/yValues collection before adding new points:


Hope it helps!
