Value Axis vs. Category Axis

SciChart ships with a value-axis and a category axis to handle DateTimes. The Value axis includes the Date-value when measuring the X-coordinate, e.g. a sequence of dates such as Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday will have a large X-gap between the Wednesday / subsequent Monday points. However the CategoryDateTimeAxis is a category axis and would treat each data-point (regardless of value) as equally spaced in the X-direction.
