Have you ever wanted to add extra space to a chart in order to make trend line projections? Never fear! With SharpCharts, you are able add many extra bars to the right of any chart. In this article, you will find the steps that show you how to add that additional horizontal space. This feature is available to all subscribers as well as free users.
To add extra horizontal space to a chart, go to the “Chart Attributes” section located below the SharpChart. In the box for “Extra Bars” (#1) enter in how many rows you want added to the right and press the “Update” button (#2).
Note: The Extra Bars option is not available if you are using the “Select Start/End” option in the Range dropdown.
**Users can add up to two years of extra bars to your chart. These extra bars are included in the overall chart data limits, which you should keep in mind when configuring your chart. For example, free users are limited to a total of three years of data on their charts, which means that, if they add two years of extra bars, they will only be able to display one year of actual price data on their chart.
The above chart is an example of what a six-month chart with 500 “Extra Bars” looks like.
