Changing datetime format on mschart axis

I'm using mschart to display some values over a timeperiod.

It looks something like this:

a busy cat

As you can see the first value is from 15:11 and the last from 16:10
But on the x-axis it's on displaying the days.
How can I change this?

EDIT: Changing XValueType to ChartValueType.Time leads to this:

a busy cat

Answer

To show DateTime related values on the XAxis you can choose to set the XValueType property.

In your case Series[0].XValueType = ChartValueType.Time would be the right thing to display time related values.

To format the values you can use ChartAreas[0].AxisX.LabelStyle.Format which would translate your values into the required format say like HH:mm:ss.

ChartAreas[0].AxisX.LabelStyle.Format ="HH:mm:ss";
