Get Chart Scale To Resize When Data Updated?Feb 28, 2012
What I have managed to do is currently display a chart with 3 bars on it linked to textboxes what have numerical values in them when the form is loaded. i.e TextBox1 has an initial value set in it's properties of 10, TextBox2 has a value of 20, TextBox3 has a value of 30.
When I run the program the graph displays these values correctly.
I have also got a button, Button1 which when pressed will plot the chart again, (so if I manually change the values in the TextBoxes after the form has loaded), it will display the new values via the bars.
The problem I have is that if if once the initial values have been plotted when the form loads, i.e. 10, 20 & 30, the Y axis of the chart has a maximum value of 35, so that all the initial values for the bars are shown. But if I change the values to say 15, 30, 80. and then press Button1 to update that bars to thier new values, the bars change but the one that show's 80 can not been seen fully as it goes off the chart, as the Y axis still only shows a maximum value of 35!
Does anyone know how to get the chart to resize to be able to display all the bar values within the chart each time the values are changed and the Button1 is pressed, whether it be reducing the graph for smaller values or enlarging the chart for higher values?
I am not 100% sure I am going about it in the correct way as I have not got any experience in using charts and am having to stuble about the net trying to find basic example code of how to setup and use a chart
My code so far is:
Public Class Form1
Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
