I’m using auto range on a numeric axis. The data can be anything, but I want the axis to never have a range of less than 5.
E.g.: -100 to -95
E.g.: 17 to 22
E.g.: 0 to 5

What do I need to set to be able to do this? I have tried MinimalZoomConstrain and VisibleRangeLimit without success. Preferably something to set in XAML on my axis.

I ended up with subscribing to the “DataRangeChanged” event on the axis and calculated the desired range myself and set the “VisibleRange” on the axis.

    Hi Henning, that will do it, but I would also suggest using AxisBase.VisibleRangeChanged instead and checking the e.NewVisibleRange.AsDoubleRange().Diff value. If it is outside of the desired bounds, set it back to the e.OldVisibleRange. Hope this helps!

    Hi Andrew, I did this (I need the x range to start at 0 and the user shouldn’t be able to pan beyond that) but now the chart “falls back” to zooming when I try to pan beyond 0, is there a way to avoid this? It simply has to stop at 0, that’s it. And I do need the zooming, but with an explicit pinch gesture, using 2 fingers…
