The GraphInquire ActiveX provides a Microsoft Chart element with special functionality to inquire the exact form of a series by zoom in, zoom out and scrolling and to display several series interactively by actions of the user. The series can be automatically scaled over a period of time. Weekdays and legal holidays are displayed as well as a legend. The localizations USA and Germany are supported. The actual display can be given out to a printer at any time. Not only series but also functions with no constant x-axle distance are displayed. The x-axle can be time, ordinal numbers and strings.
