I want to display a chart that automatically crops that whole chart to where there is data and not display any empty before or after time ranges where there is no data at all, how can this be done?

Please let me know if more information is required.

In your timechart command, use the option

fixedrange=false

for example

yoursearchhere
| timechart fixedrange=false count

then the timechart X-axis will be cropped to only the timerange that includes valid data.

That worked perfectly for my purpose.
I combined data from 2 different days, and shifted the date of the first day so that timechart would show them at the same times, but I ended with an empty set. This solved my problem. Thank you very much!
