sorry I'm not a native speaker. With bin I mean a bar in a bar chart. In Shinobi speak a data point in a SChartColumnSeries.
The root cause of the problem is that I want to limit the number of majorticks to the number of bars plotted in the canvas.
I have year sized bars on a datetime x axis. Depending on the overall range some bars have a majortick. For example in a 20 year range every 5th year has a majortick. When I zoom in horizontally so that the range is 5 years every bar has a tickmark. When I now zoom in even further shinobi draws more majorticks so that every bar has several majorticks which makes logically no sense. How can I avoid that behavior that the auto-tick-calculation draws more ticks than bars (in shinobi speak data points) when I zoom in?
This is what I meant with tick frequency to be aligned with the number of bars. More technically the constraint I need is that every data point has exactly one or no corresponding majortick, depending on the zoom level. But each bar must not have more than one tick.
Is it possible to give the auto-tick-calculation algorithm that kind of constraint?
