User sometimes need to use a Static Ruler which does not scale when you zoom the Diagram. Or when you pan. Just line with star 0, ticks, end 1024 for example. This line does not move and does nto scale. There is no easy way to achieve this. UpdateScale method is private. It could be protected. ==== In Q1 2014 SP DiagamRuler will draw itself and its ticks when its Diagram property is NOT set.
