odd location for labels requested

I am trying to get my labels to start at a different place from the default location.  From what I understand, the X-label in a line chart starts at X_axis.min, unless FirstLabel is set to a non-zero value.  I have days of the week along my X-axis and only want a label each Saturday.  The chart however can start at a different day of the week. For example, I would use:

FirstLabel = 5 (On Sunday)

STEP = 7

MinorStep = 1

LabelValue = 7

This will indeed give my first label at the correct location, but my minor tick marks only start after this point. How can I keep my minor tick marks to the left of the first label? Please take a look at the attached HTML file. The out-of-range value in this example is just a coincidence.

ChartFX Client/Server 5.0, VB6

Thanks for your help.

I'm afraid this is not supported in Chart FX 5.x

Chart FX 6.2 will do what you want as FirstLabel will only affect the Major

Step (the MinorStep will continue to start at the Min).

You will also find that Date Handling has been greatly improved in Chart FX

6.2, for example in this case where you want to have weeks on the X-Axis

this will be done automatically for you the first label will automatically

adjust to the nearest "nice" interval (e.g. week).

Hmmm, I can't get too excited about upgrading to Chart FX 6.2.  Isn't that

the .NET version? I'm still heavily and happily entrenched in VB 6.0.

Your website also doesn't say a word about an upgrade path 5.0 -> 6.2.
