Is there a way to leave space at the top of the chart so that plots are not hidden behind symbol names?

Thank you!

For example, you could set a smaller font size for the company name.

The only real way is to use the SetPaneMinMax method. Here's a little block of code that adds 10% of the highest value in view to the top of the pane. This is especially useful when using semilog charts, which often need more headroom.

That did the trick.

Cone,

Is there a way to have the chart re SetPaneMinMax() after scrolling?

Also, could this be extended into a tool forcing a 'zoom' on a chart region after say, clicking on 2 chart points (collecting 'x' & 'y' points), or dragging diagonally from 'x' to 'y' ?

Thanks

No on both counts. The only way to zoom (sort of) it to use the bar spacing buttons or mouse wheel. An x to y drag zoom could not possibly work with Wealth-Lab charting. I could envision highlighting an x1 to x2 area for a zoom, but I doubt that the bang for the buck is there.
