Shows how to get a graph axis to cross at a custom location.
Document doc = new Document();
DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

// Insert a column chart, which is populated by default values
Shape shape = builder.InsertChart(ChartType.Column, 450, 250);
Chart chart = shape.Chart;

// Get the Y-axis to cross at a value of 3.0, making 3.0 the new Y-zero of our column chart
// This effectively means that all the columns with Y-values about 3.0 will be above the Y-centre and point up,
// while ones below 3.0 will point down
ChartAxis axis = chart.AxisX;
