How to set chart Axis values

Below is code - incuding an array to automatically make the two charts :
1) Normal Histogram
2) The same data but now using .charttype XYscatterwithsmooth

The problem is that I want the X axis from the true histogram to show up on my "Curve Histogram" (In other words I want the exact same scale and values) - however I cannot figure out how to get the X Axis right on my "Curve Histogram". A special thank you to AlphaFrog for getting my the curve Histrogram to work in the first place.

Simply run the macro - ' AddHistoChart' and both charts will be shown

Code:
Option Explicit
Public Sub AddHistochart()
    Dim NumCharts As Long
    Dim PlotValues() As Variant
    Dim i as Long, ii As Long
    Dim frequency() As Variant
    Dim binlabel() As Variant
    Dim binsize As Variant
    Dim minimumX As Single
    Dim maximumX As Single
    Dim NumBins As Long
    Dim NumParameters As Long
    Dim HighFrequency As Long
    
    Application.StatusBar = "Making Histogram"
    NumBins = 10
    NumParameters = 1
    
   
    ReDim frequency(1 To NumBins)
    ReDim binlabel(1 To NumBins)
    
    Call GetArrayValue(PlotValues, minimumX, maximumX)
    binsize = (maximumX - minimumX) / NumBins
    For i = 1 To NumBins
        binlabel(i) = Format(minimumX + 0.5 * binsize + (i - 1) * binsize, "####0.00")
    Next i
    HighFrequency = 0
    For i = 1 To NumBins - 1
        For ii = 0 To UBound(PlotValues)
            If PlotValues(ii) >= binlabel(i) - 0.5 * binsize And PlotValues(ii) < binlabel(i + 1) - 0.5 * binsize Then
                frequency(i) = frequency(i) + 1
                If frequency(i) > HighFrequency Then HighFrequency = frequency(i)
            End If
        Next ii
    Next i
    '******* last bin
    For i = 0 To UBound(PlotValues)
        If PlotValues(i) >= binlabel(NumBins) - 0.5 * binsize And PlotValues(i) < maximumX Then
            frequency(NumBins) = frequency(NumBins) + 1
            If frequency(NumBins) > HighFrequency Then HighFrequency = frequency(i)
        End If
    Next i
    NumCharts = ActiveSheet.ChartObjects.Count
    If NumCharts > 0 Then
        For i = NumCharts To 1 Step -1
            ActiveSheet.ChartObjects(i).Delete
        Next i
    End If

    ActiveSheet.ChartObjects.Add Left:=50, Top:=50, Width:=600, Height:=300
    NumCharts = ActiveSheet.ChartObjects.Count
    If NumCharts > 1 Then
        ActiveSheet.ChartObjects(NumCharts).Left = ActiveSheet.ChartObjects(NumCharts - 1).Left
        ActiveSheet.ChartObjects(NumCharts).Top = ActiveSheet.ChartObjects(NumCharts - 1).Top + ActiveSheet.ChartObjects(NumCharts - 1).Height + 20
        ActiveSheet.ChartObjects(NumCharts).Height = ActiveSheet.ChartObjects(NumCharts - 1).Height
        ActiveSheet.ChartObjects(NumCharts).Width = ActiveSheet.ChartObjects(NumCharts - 1).Width
    End If
    NumCharts = ActiveSheet.ChartObjects.Count

Excel Facts

Which lookup functions find a value equal or greater than the lookup value?
MATCH uses -1 to find larger value (lookup table must be sorted ZA). XLOOKUP uses 1 to find values greater and does not need to be sorted.

You want to make a Line type chart (with smoothed lines) instead of an XY Scatter type chart.

The Line type chart uses category labels on the X axis like a Column type chart. The XY Scater chart type uses sequential values on the X-axis. This site explains the difference better than I can.
http://pubs.logicalexpressions.com/pub0009/LPMArticle.asp?ID=190

Code:
With Achart.Chart     'Set chart properties
       If NumCharts = 1 Then
                .ChartType = xlColumnClustered
                
            Else
                [COLOR="Green"]'.ChartType = xlXYScatterSmoothNoMarkers[/COLOR]
                [COLOR="Red"].ChartType = xlLine[/COLOR]
        End If
        .SeriesCollection.NewSeries
        .HasLegend = False
        .Axes(xlCategory).MajorTickMark = xlTickMarkOutside
        .Axes(xlValue).MajorTickMark = xlTickMarkOutside
        .Axes(xlValue).MinimumScale = 0
        .Axes(xlValue).MaximumScale = HighFrequency + 1
        
        
        .SeriesCollection(NumParameters).Values = Array(frequency) ' creates bars
        .SeriesCollection(NumParameters).XValues = Array(binlabel)
        
       [COLOR="Red"]If .ChartType = xlLine Then .SeriesCollection(NumParameters).Smooth = True[/COLOR]
        
        'Selection.Fill.OneColorGradient Style:=msoGradientHorizontal, Variant:=4, Degree:=0.231372549019608
        
        .Axes(xlCategory).HasTitle = True
        .Axes(xlCategory).AxisTitle.Characters.Text = "Predictions"
        .Axes(xlValue).HasTitle = True
        .Axes(xlValue).AxisTitle.Characters.Text = "Frequency"
    End With
