Dear Master,

I trying make a zedgraph plotter system in C# in the temperature measurement system, and successfully to graph serial data. But the direction is not linear, it's mean the lower temperature not placed in the first time but in the end of time. This is my code:

can I change the plot graph direction to be linear? how I can do that?

Thanks for your help



What I have tried:

<pre lang="C#">   // Set the titles and axis labels
            GraphPane myPane = ZedGraphControl1.GraphPane;

            //Set title axis labels and font color
            myPane.Title.Text = &quot;Temperature vs. Time&quot;;
            myPane.Title.FontSpec.FontColor = Color.Black;

            myPane.XAxis.Title.Text = &quot;Time (Sec)&quot;;
            myPane.XAxis.Title.FontSpec.FontColor = Color.Black;

            myPane.YAxis.Title.Text = &quot;Temperature (Celcius)&quot;;
            myPane.YAxis.Title.FontSpec.FontColor = Color.Black;

            //Fill the chart background with a color gradient
            myPane.Fill = new Fill(Color.FromArgb(255, 255, 245), Color.FromArgb(255, 255, 190), 90F);
            myPane.Chart.Fill = new Fill(Color.FromArgb(255, 255, 245), Color.FromArgb(255, 255, 190), 90F);

            myPane.XAxis.Scale.FontSpec.IsAntiAlias = true;
            myPane.YAxis.Scale.FontSpec.IsAntiAlias = true; 

            //Add grid lines to the plot and make them gray
            myPane.XAxis.MajorGrid.IsVisible = true;
            myPane.XAxis.MajorGrid.Color = Color.LightGray;

            myPane.YAxis.MajorGrid.IsVisible = true;
            myPane.YAxis.MajorGrid.Color = Color.LightGray;

            //Enable point value tooltips and handle point value event
            ZedGraphControl1.IsShowPointValues = true;
           ZedGraphControl1.PointValueEvent += new ZedGraphControl.PointValueHandler(PointValueHandler);

            //Show the horizontal scroll bar
            ZedGraphControl1.IsShowHScrollBar = true;

            //Automatically set the scrollable range to cover the data range from the curves

            ZedGraphControl1.ScrollGrace = 0.1;

            //Horizontal pan and zoom allowed
            ZedGraphControl1.IsEnableHPan = true;
            ZedGraphControl1.IsEnableHZoom = true;

            //Vertical pan and zoom not allowed
            ZedGraphControl1.IsEnableVPan = false;
            ZedGraphControl1.IsEnableVZoom = false;

            //Set the initial viewed range
           // ZedGraphControl1.GraphPane.XAxis.Scale.MinAuto = true;

            //Let Y-Axis range adjust to data range

                for (double x = 0; x &lt; Samples; x++)

            // Generate a red curve with diamond
            // symbols, and &quot;Porsche&quot; in the legend
