Creating Multiple X-Axes on Charts in LabVIEW 7.0 and Later

I built an application in LabVIEW 6.1 that uses intensity and waveform charts with multiple x-axes. I recently upgraded to a later version of LabVIEW and am developing new subVIs for this application. However, now I cannot create multiple x-axes on charts. When I right-click the x-axis of a chart, Duplicate Scale appears dimmed. How can I create multiple x-axes on charts?
As of LabVIEW 7.0, charts cannot have multiple x-axes. However, you can create a custom chart control with multiple x-axes in LabVIEW 6.1 or earlier and use the control in later versions of LabVIEW.
Complete the following steps to create a custom chart control with multiple axes for use in LabVIEW 7.0 or later.
The attached files include two custom chart controls, a waveform chart with two x-axes and an intensity chart with two x-axes.
For more information about creating multiple axes, or scales, on charts and graphs, refer to the Adding Multiple X- and Y-Scales on Graphs or Charts topic in the LabVIEW Help (linked below). For more information about adding controls to the User Controls palette, refer to the Adding VIs and Controls to the User and Instrument Drivers Subpalettes topic in the LabVIEW Help (linked below).
