I have an idea:

X axis label

Scale X Axis omissions dynamically based on the number of points vs the size of the graph.

Currently, you need to choose a static "Drop every Xth label" which does not scale well at all.


"Drop every 7th label" works well for 90 days of data, but if I switch to 7 days of data, there is only one label.

Most charting libraries do this.

Introduced with an update to our charting engine. For series charts (bar/line), select the X Axis int he component tree, on the properties tab, there is an option for Auto under label drop.

    I'm having this issue too using an input filter. Ultimately, I want as as many labels to show as possible without any overlapping. It'd be great if there was an "auto" option to automatically drop labels when they being to overlap.

    This would be great not only with variable date ranges but also when you give the users the possibility of grouping dates (by day, month, quarter, year, etc.).
