Figure 13: Scroll Preview

You can set the Scroll Alignment to the Start or End of the chart, set the Scroll Position to Top or Bottom and use the Max bars before showing scroll to pre-define the scroll range (Figure 14). 

Note: Hiding the scroll will display all the bars and resize them based on the available space.
