Padding of the min value relative to the length of the axis. A padding of 0.05 will make a 100px axis 5px longer. This is useful when you don't want the lowest data value to appear on the edge of the plot area. When the axis' min option is set or a min extreme is set using axis.setExtremes(), the minPadding will be ignored.

For an ordinal axis, minPadding and maxPadding are ignored. Use overscroll instead.
