Issue Details

I'm using a waveform chart with autoscale enabled but after 1024 elements my elements start sliding to the left.
I cannot understand this behavior, with the auto scale setted I expect to see al values in my chart.

Solution

The autoscale means they adjust their horizontal and vertical scales to fit the data you wire to them. 
You see this behavior cause you are trying to store in a chart more elements than its History Lenght.
The History Lenght is the number of elemts that charts can stored and is setted to 1024 by default.
If you want to change this number you can Right-click on the chart and select Chart History Length from the shortcut menu to configure the history buffer.
