Number of shown values

I am using the line chart for a price development chart over time. Time is x-axis and prices are y-axis. I have two questions:

  1. My chart breaks off after 50 values. I can maximize the value with the "limit" parameter by hand but then end up with something like this, which is not zoomable and/or clickable, unfortunately. So it's not meant for a large number of data?
  2. I would llike to display the property value (the date) on the x-axis instead of the pagename (random number). Is there a way to do so?

I'd be happy for any guidance on this.

Help:Dygraphs format is a better fit for large data sets such as Demo:Dygraphs/Daily Temperatures in New York vs. San Francisco or Demo:Dygraphs/Annotate gas chromatogram (10K data points).

I cannot remember (maybe) something like Demo:Jqplotseries/Stacked_series?

Color schemes

Where do I find information about the mentioned colour schemes and the grid themes? I found in some examples colour schemes like "rdbu" and "prgn", are they explained somewhere?

From the source [0], schemes with a leading cc are collected from ColorCombo website with others being retrieved from the ColorBrewer Color Schemes [1].

Parameter descriptions

Would it be possible to define some more verbose commentary for parameters? The default is provided, but alternative parameters are not (so one has to guess about potential alternatives!) This should be possible, if only for parameters with a defined set of allowed values.

E.g., for the 'datalabels' parameter, I have figured out that "percent" and "label" and "value" are valid values for this parameter, from finding examples & guessing... but I have no idea if they are the only ones.

SRF / Jqplotchart - max parameter ?

Hi ! Would it be possible to enable a max parameter in some future release? Most often, this is not needed, but sometimes I would like to show a possible maximal value in a histogram. It also would useful for side-by-side printing of histograms that have the same potential min/max values (e.g. survey data).

The max parameter does seem to exist, if I understand the jqPlot API documentation.
