public class AutomaticNumericScaleOptions :


An object of the AutomaticNumericScaleOptions type is returned by the AxisX2D.NumericScaleOptions, AxisX3D.NumericScaleOptions, and CircularAxisX2D.NumericScaleOptions properties.

In the Automatic scale mode, the Chart control automatically defines the most optimal unit of measure for an axis based on the input data, the current chart control size and the zoom level.

Data for each interval on the X-axis is aggregated using the function specified by the AutomaticNumericScaleOptions.AggregateFunction property. Although by default, aggregate function is set to Average, it can be changed to Minimum, Maximum, Sum, etc.
