Since the chart area is defined by subtracting the space consumed by
the axes from the printable area there are two options that are
mutually exclusive.

- Define the chart by precisely specifying (in absolute or in
relative numbers) how much space may be used by each axis.
and/or define start and end values for the axes' labels.

-> This produces results that are comparable to each other
since the chart will have an exactly fixed size and its position
on the paper will remain the same even if the labels of its axes
become wider or more narrow.
Also the graphical representation of the date will be comparable
since all your charts will use the same scale if you wish this.

- Let the program calculate the chart layout based upon the kind
of and width of the labels to be drawn at the axes.
Also the program can calculate the labels for you and find the
boundary values for start and end of the scale automatically.
-> This will produce good looking results without you having
to fiddle around with the settings.
Unfortunately these charts will not allways be comparable to
each other if the axes' labels change since both the size of
the area reserved for the chart and the scaling of the
scales will vary if the data values do so.

With KDChart both ways are possible, see hints given with
setAxisAreaMode(), setAxisAreaMin() and setAxisAreaMax().

To optimize your results you might want to use setAxisLineWidth() and
setAxisLabelsFontPointSize(): negative values will specify it
in per thousand  of the printable area size - producing a result
looking fine even if the chart is
printed at very large dimensions.

/**
  The axis position.
  Use AxisPosBottom for X-axis and AxisPosLeft for traditional Y-axis.
  When showing 3-dimensional charts you may use AxisPosLowerRightEdge
  to have an Y-axis on the lower right side going into the 'depth' of
  the picture and a z-axis going 'upwards' at the left edge.
  The other, optional values (AxisPosRight, AxisPosTop and
  AxisPosLowerLeftEdge, resp.) could be used to show a second
  axis on the other side of the picture - useful in case you want
  to show two data sets in one chart, like two curves showing data sets
  sharing the same abscissa axis but having differently scaled ordinates.
  The additional values (AxisPosBottom2, AxisPosTop2 ..) may be used
  to specify composed charts having two ordinates at the same side of
  the drawing and the like...

  These AxisPos values are used to specify which axis' settings are
  to be modified or retrieved, resp.

  Specifies another axis which this axis shall be isometric with.

  \param isoRefAxis axis which this axis shall be isometric with.

  Normally all axes' step widths are calculated independently from
  each other. By specifying a reference axis for one axis you make
  KDChart use the same scale for both axes.

  For example to have the left axis using the same scale as the
  right axis you could invoke this:

  \verbatim
  KDChartAxisParams pa(
  _p->axisParams( KDChartAxisParams::AxisPosLeft ) );
  pa.setIsometricReferenceAxis( KDChartAxisParams::AxisPosBottom );
  _p->setAxisParams( KDChartAxisParams::AxisPosLeft, pa );

  These commands are equivalent to the following ones:

  \verbatim
  KDChartAxisParams pa(
  _p->axisParams( KDChartAxisParams::AxisPosBottom ) );
  pa.setIsometricReferenceAxis( KDChartAxisParams::AxisPosLeft );
  _p->setAxisParams( KDChartAxisParams::AxisPosBottom, pa );
  \endverbatim

  In any case both axes will use the same scale so - unless you are
  using more axes than these two ones - the resulting chart will be true
  to scale.

  \note Use special value KDChartParams::KDCHART_ALL_AXES if your chart
  has got more than two axes and all of them shall use the same scale, specifying
  this for one of the axes is enough, there is no need to set it several times.

  Use special value KDChartParams::KDCHART_NO_AXIS to undo any previous setting
  that was specified for this axis, this has to be called for any axis that was
  modified by previous calls.

Currently the following strings are supported by the automatical

you may specify any other set of label texts by passing a \c QStringList

  Specifies how the axis limits shall be calculated
  and specifies the lower and the upper limit,
  the step-width and the list of strings
  (if such is to be used).

  \note Start and end values are \c KDChartData so you may either
  specify numerical data or pass a string. <br>
  However if passing a string make sure to also specify a
  valid QStringList* for \c axisLabelStringList.
  In that case it could be wise to also also specify a second
  QStringList* for \c axisShortLabelsStringsList to be used in
  case the axes area is not wide enough to display the
  label texts in their full length.

  <P>

  To specify the start value and the way the label values
  are calculated you may

  \li \b either pass a <b>string</b> as start value
  <br>
  In this case the label texts will be taken from the string
  list passed to the function via \c axisLabelStringList
  starting with the string you specified as start value and
  restarting at the beginnig whenever the end is reached.
  In case the start value is not contained in the
  \c axisLabelStringList list it will be ignored and labelling
  will be done as if you had specified
  AXIS_LABELS_AUTO_LIMIT as start value (see below).
  <br>
  In case you specify a non-zero integer value for
  \c axisValueDelta the width and direction
  of steps will be performed accordingly:
  <br>
  A value of <b>1.0</b>
  (specifying a step-length of 1 ) will cause every entry
  of the list to be taken.
  <br>
  A <b>4.0</b> would take the start entry, skip 3 entries, take
  the 4th entry and so forth...
  <br>
  By using negative numbers you can specify backward stepping.
  <br>
  (Of course all non-integer values will be ignored here.)
  \li \b or pass <b>AXIS_LABELS_AUTO_LIMIT</b> as start value
  <br>
  In this case the first label text <br>
  <i>either</i> will be calculated
  based upon the lowest value of the associated
  datasets row number \c labelTextsDataRow if
  \c axisLabelsFromDataRow is set to true, <br>
  <i>or</i> the first entry of the texts list will be taken
  if \c axisLabelStringList is set properly, <br>
  <i>otherwise</i> it will be set to "1".

  \li \b or pass a <b>numerical value</b> as start value
  <br>
  In this case the first label text will be set to that value.
  <br>
  <b>In either case</b> (AXIS_LABELS_AUTO_LIMIT or numerical value)
  the \c axisValueDelta may be used to specify the value to be
  added to obtain the next values:
  <br>
  A value of <b>1.0</b> will cause 1.0 to be added to the current
  value to make the next value.
  <br>
  A <b>-0.25</b> would cause 0.25 to be subtracted from the current value.
  <br>
  (Negative or non-integer numbers are allowed here.)

<P>

Examples:

\verbatim
setAxisValues();
\endverbatim
This would specify a default ordinate-axis obtaining its values from the
attached dataset. Looks nice but it is difficult to compare it to another
chart representing slightly different min/max values since it neither starts
at zero nor ends at an allways same value.

\verbatim
setAxisValues( true, KDChartData( 0.0 ) );
\endverbatim
This would specify a half-automatical ordinate-axis obtaining its values from
the attached dataset. Looks nice and can be slightly easier compared to
another chart since it allways starts at zero, causing negative values to be
ignored completely.

\verbatim
setAxisValues( true, KDChartData( -2.0 ),
        KDChartData(  7.5 ),
        0.5, 1 );
\endverbatim
This would specify an ordinate-axis \not obtaining its values
from the attached dataset.
<b>Since both the start value and the end value are specified the range
of the dataset values are ignored completely.</b>
It will show one digit behind the comma.
The resulting chart can be perfectly compared to
another chart since it allways starts and ends at the very same level - no
matter what the dataset values are about actually.

\verbatim
setAxisValues( false, KDChartData( 0.0 ),
        KDChartData( 3.5),
        0.25, 2 );
\endverbatim
This would specify a default abscissa-axis starting with value 0.0 and
adding 0.25 to get the next value, will count until 3.5.
It will show two digits behind the comma.

\verbatim
setAxisValues( false,
        KDChartData( 1964.0 ), AXIS_LABELS_AUTO_LIMIT, 1, 0 );
\endverbatim
This would specify a default abscissa-axis starting with value 1964 and
adding 1 to get the next value.
It will show no digits behind the comma.

\verbatim
KDChartParams p;
KDChartAxisParams pa( p.axisParams( KDChartAxisParams::AxisPosBottom ) );

QStringList abscissaNames;
abscissaNames << "Sunday" << "Monday" << "Tuesday" << "Wednesday"
<< "Thursday" << "Friday" << "Saturday";

QStringList abscissaShortNames;
abscissaShortNames << "Sun" << "Mon" << "Tue" << "Wed"
<< "Thu" << "Fri" << "Sat";

pa.setAxisValues( false,
        KDChartData( "Monday" ),
        AXIS_LABELS_AUTO_LIMIT,
        AXIS_LABELS_AUTO_DELTA,
        AXIS_LABELS_AUTO_DIGITS,
        KDChartAxisParams::LabelsFromDataRowNo,
        0,
        &abscissaNames,
        &abscissaShortNames );
p.setAxisParams( KDChartAxisParams::AxisPosBottom, pa );
\endverbatim
This would specify a default abscissa-axis starting with 'Monday' and
counting the days of the week as far as neccessary to represent
all the entries in the associated dataset.
Note this \c LabelsFromDataRowNo indicating that the texts are <b>not</b> to
be taken from a data row and note \c &abscissaNames indicating the
\c QStringList where to take the texts from instead. (In case the axis area
        is not wide enough to display the strings in their full length their
        counterparts stored in abscissaShortNames will be displayed instead.)
<b>Note also:</b> The strings in those two QStringList are <b>not</b>
copied into the \c KDChartAxisParams nor into the \c KDChartParams
so please make sure the Lists are alive and valid till the end of
the param objects. Otherwise you will not be able to display the
texts.

\param axisSteadyValueCalc specifies whether label values shall be calculataed based upon the associated dataset values (normally this is true for ordinate axes) or based upon some string list (as you might expect it for abscissa labels).

\param axisValueEnd specifies the last label value to be written.
\param axisValueDelta specifies the length of the steps to be taken from one label text to the next one.

To prevent \c setAxisValues from changing the current setting you may specify DONT_CHANGE_EMPTY_INNER_SPAN_NOW here, to deactivate taking into account the inner span entirely just use AXIS_IGNORE_EMPTY_INNER_SPAN.
\param takeLabelsFromDataRow specifies whether the labels texts shall be taken from a special row (reserved for this in each dataset) or not.
\param axisLabelStringList points to a \c QStringList containing the label texts to be used.
\param axisShortLabelsStringList points to a \c QStringList containing the label texts to be used in case their full-size counterparts cannot be shown due to limited axis area size.
\param axisValueLeaveOut is used for horizontal (top or bottom) axes only; it specifies whether some of the axis labels are to be skipped if there is not enough room for drawing them all without overlapping - this parameter may be set to AXIS_LABELS_AUTO_LEAVEOUT or to zero or to another positive value.
\param axisValueDeltaScale is used to specify the scaling mode of \c axisValueDelta - either just ValueScaleNumbers of a special time scale indicator.
