some of the time in a simple chart, perhaps often, user wishes to autorange minimum, -or- maximum and set a specific range for the other side.
Example: autorange minimum, but cap the maximum at a value.
In Visualize/axis, behavior could be to disable autorange, and set the maximum limit, AND LEAVE THE MINIMUM LIMIT BLANK. this would instruct the code to auto-range one side only.
