I'm trying to create like a measuring system that can measure a value on Y axis and time on X axis with LiveCharts.

I've used Constant Changes as a base to create my graph but I want my X Axis to start from 0 seconds instead of the current time like they do in the example. I've tried How to make the x Axis to start on 0 and have a step of 2 seconds, instead of staring on a second the program started, using Livecharts? but I couldn't get it to work with my program. I want to do the same thing they did in thread linked above but can't get it to work.

My Output/ How it looks

Code Behind:

        public void init()
        {
            var mapper = Mappers.Xy<ValueRandomizerForTest>().X(model => 
             model.DateTime.Ticks).Y(model => model.Valuefordate);
            Charting.For<ValueRandomizerForTest>(mapper);
            ChartValues = new ChartValues<ValueRandomizerForTest>();
            DateTimeFormatter = value => new 
                 DateTime((long)value).ToString("ss");
            AxisStep = TimeSpan.FromSeconds(1).Ticks;

            AxisUnit = TimeSpan.TicksPerSecond;
            SetAxisLimits(DateTime.Now);


        }


public void read()
        {


            var r = new Random();

            while (isreading)
            {
                Thread.Sleep(550);
                var now = DateTime.Now;
                var test = now.Second;


                _trend = r.Next(1, 100);

                if(ChartValues.Count == 0)
                {


                }

                ChartValues.Add(new ValueRandomizerForTest
                {
                    DateTime = now,
                    Valuefordate = _trend
                });


                SetAxisLimits(now);

                //lets only use the last 150 values
                if (ChartValues.Count > 150)
                {
                    ChartValues.RemoveAt(0);
                }
            }



        }
        public void SetAxisLimits(DateTime now)
        {

            AxisMax = now.Ticks + TimeSpan.FromSeconds(1).Ticks; //Axis is moving 1 second ahead
            AxisMin = now.Ticks - TimeSpan.FromSeconds(5).Ticks; 
        }

ValuerandomizerFortest Class:

        public DateTime DateTime { get; set; }
        public TimeSpan Time { get; set; }
        public double Valuefordate { get; set; }



        public double AxisStep { get; set; }

        public double AxisUnit { get; set; }


           private double _axisMax;

           private double _axisMin;


        public double AxisMax
        {

            get
            {
                return _axisMax
            }

            set
            {
                _axisMax = value;
                NotifyPropertyChanged("AxisMax");
            }
        }
        public double AxisMin
        {
            get { return _axisMin; }
            set
            {
                _axisMin = value;
                NotifyPropertyChanged("AxisMin");
            }
        }
