Populate range navigator with data

Now, we are going to provide data to the range navigator. Add a series object to the range navigator by using series property. Now map the field names x and y in the JSON data to the xName and yNameproperties of the series, then set the JSON data to dataSource property. Since the JSON contains Datetime data, set the valueType as DateTime. By default, the axis valueType is Numeric.
