public AxisBound()
Examples
Shows how to set custom axis bounds.
Document doc = new Document();
DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

// Insert a scatter chart, remove default data and populate it with data from a ChartSeries
Shape chartShape = builder.InsertChart(ChartType.Scatter, 450, 300);
Chart chart = chartShape.Chart;
chart.Series.Clear();
chart.Series.Add("Series 1", new[] { 1.1, 5.4, 7.9, 3.5, 2.1, 9.7 }, new[] { 2.1, 0.3, 0.6, 3.3, 1.4, 1.9 });

// By default, the axis bounds are automatically defined so all the series data within the table is included
Assert.True(chart.AxisX.Scaling.Minimum.IsAuto);

// If we wish to set our own scale bounds, we need to replace them with new ones
// Both the axis rulers will go from 0 to 10
chart.AxisX.Scaling.Minimum = new AxisBound(0);
chart.AxisX.Scaling.Maximum = new AxisBound(10);
chart.AxisY.Scaling.Minimum = new AxisBound(0);
chart.AxisY.Scaling.Maximum = new AxisBound(10);

// These are custom and not defined automatically
Assert.False(chart.AxisX.Scaling.Minimum.IsAuto);
Assert.False(chart.AxisY.Scaling.Minimum.IsAuto);

// Create a line graph
chartShape = builder.InsertChart(ChartType.Line, 450, 300);
chart = chartShape.Chart;
chart.Series.Clear();

// Create a collection of dates, which will make up the X axis
DateTime[] dates = { new DateTime(1973, 5, 11),
    new DateTime(1981, 2, 4),
    new DateTime(1985, 9, 23),
    new DateTime(1989, 6, 28),
    new DateTime(1994, 12, 15)
};

// Assign a Y-value for each date 
chart.Series.Add("Series 1", dates, new[] { 3.0, 4.7, 5.9, 7.1, 8.9 });

// These particular bounds will cut off categories from before 1980 and from 1990 and onwards
// This narrows the amount of categories and values in the viewport from 5 to 3
// Note that the graph still contains the out-of-range data because we can see the line tend towards it
chart.AxisX.Scaling.Minimum = new AxisBound(new DateTime(1980, 1, 1));
chart.AxisX.Scaling.Maximum = new AxisBound(new DateTime(1990, 1, 1));
