    Various flash issues

    It's definitely Flash, not Quicktime. Since facing this issue, we were forced to use the bitmap version for our solution rather than Flash as the Flash part of the product was simply not of production quality. Since then, our company was taken over and the project scrapped and I haven't used ChartFX since. It's possible that a newer version of ChartFX works much better with Flash.

    Thanks Tomas - is there any way around the text being chopped off issue? At the moment, that's the number one thing preventing me from wholeheartedly recommending ChartFX for our project (see the flickr link and look at the legend). I'm not sure which of the issues I mentioned is related to image borders.

    I've uploaded an screenshot of the flash rendering to flickr which shows how the chart looks for the second and fourth issues. http://flickr.com/photos/61487392@N00/2280008006/

    Various flash issues

    Hi, I'm having a few problems with getting Flash to work totally in version 6.5. We'd like to render as Flash - I don't get any of these problems with image formats such as png or jpeg. I'm rendering exactly the same charts. The issues are: If I use a gradient scheme, the shading on bars is done left to right across bars on the whole chart, not top to bottom as per the documentation and the image formats. Text is often chopped off at the bottom on axes and in the legend. If I set FlashWriter.setTooltipsConstraint(true), it doesn't show tooltips for data points that would cause the tooltip to be outside the drawing area at all, rather than moving them so they fit. If I put a background on the gradient, it is displayed the opposite way round in Flash compared to a bitmap (i.e. left to right instead of right to left). Other than these things, Flash charts look really good. Are any of these issues like to be fixed soon? Or are there any things I can do to make Flash charts more reliable? Thanks, Pete.
  5. Ah, great, thanks. The installation docs have the method called on an instance of ChartServer, which will be why IntelliJ didn't give me the method as an option as it's a static method. I've got it working now using setConfigPath. Many thanks, Pete.
  6. Hi, I'm trying out the ChartFX Community Edition, and we are seriously considering adopting ChartFX for a project. I'm having trouble getting ChartFX to successfully read the licence file in Tomcat 5.5. If I deploy my app as an exploded war, there is no problem at all, and I have managed to get ChartFX to read the file from application root/chartfx62/config, and also server/lib in Tomcat. However, if the app is deployed as an unexploded (i.e. compressed single file) war, I get error "Invalid License (A00000)" for both locations. It is a requirement that our app can be deployed as a single war file - is this possible with ChartFX? I also note in the docs that I could call setConfigPath(String) on the Chart object to hard code the path to the config directory - however, in version 6.5 (community edition), there is no such method. Is there any way round this? We're actually not interested in the temp directory as we'll be using getHtmlData to generate the data through servlets. Thanks, Pete Bowman.
