Indicates whether the values on the axis are scalar.

If Scalar is False, the values on the axis are not scalar, that is, the axis displays values exactly as they exist in the data. If it is True, the values are placed along a continuous scale. For example, if the dataset contains data for January, March, July, November, and December, a non-scalar axis displays only those months, while a scalar axis displays all of the months in the year.

Scalar cannot be True if the axis has more than one grouping, has a static grouping, or has a grouping with more than one group expression. Scalar only affects axes in which the data contains numeric or date values.

The Scalar element is ignored for the y-axis (value axis). Scalar is always True for this axis.
