Time Span Scale

The [ObservableObject], [ObservableProperty] and [ICommand] attributes come from the CommunityToolkit.Mvvm package, you can read more about it here.

This web site wraps every sample using a ContentPage instance, but LiveCharts controls can be used inside any container.

            // if the difference between our points is in hours then we would:

            // since all the months and years have a different number of days
            // we can use the average, it would not cause any visible error in the user interface
            // Months: TimeSpan.FromDays(30.4375).Ticks
            // Years: TimeSpan.FromDays(365.25).Ticks

            // The MinStep property forces the separator to be greater than 1 ms.
            MinStep = TimeSpan.FromMilliseconds(1).Ticks, // mark
