        final ChartPanel chartPanel = new ChartPanel(chart);
        chartPanel.setPreferredSize(new Dimension(500, 270));

     * Creates a sample dataset.
     * @return The dataset.
    static private CategoryDataset createDataset() {

        JFreeChart jfreechart = ChartFactory.createLineChart3D(title, categoryAxisLabel, valueAxisLabel, dataset, PlotOrientation.VERTICAL, true, true, true);
        CategoryPlot categoryplot = jfreechart.getCategoryPlot();
        categoryplot.setBackgroundPaint(new Color(238, 238, 255));
        //Manages the Domain(x-axis) label position
        CategoryAxis categoryaxis = categoryplot.getDomainAxis();
        return jfreechart;
     * Starting point for the demonstration application.
     * @param args  ignored.

        final LineChart3DDemo demo = new LineChart3DDemo("3D Line Chart Demo","Category","Values");
