Horizontal Zero Line with Multiple Panes

Recommended Posts

When I use the multiple pane feature, it seems that my charts lose the grey horizontal zero line. This happens even if I have one pane in the chart. The zero line shows up fine if I have a single chart but I don't use panes. I'm using Chart FX 6.2 COM with Visual C++ and MFC.

How do I get the zero line to show up?

Hachem, I am not able to reproduce this. Are you able to provide some sample working code and some screenshots of what you are experiencing?

This problem has yet to be resolved in my case.

Unfortunately, I cannot upload my code. If someone can upload their code, that would help all of us.

This code genereates 2 panes. In the second pane the zero line is missing. This alway occurs when there are positive and negative numbers in the series. A work around may be to define a Constant Line for value 0 with the same color + width as the zero line would have, but I would prefer a more elegant solution.


  'Fill data with positive and negative numbers

  Chart1.ClearData ClearDataFlag_AllData

  Chart1.OpenData COD_Values, 2, 2


  Chart1.Value(0, 0) = 50

  Chart1.Value(0, 1) = -75

  Chart1.Value(1, 0) = 75

  Chart1.Value(1, 1) = -50


  Chart1.CloseData COD_Values

  'Set panes

  Dim ax As Axis

  Set ax = Chart1.Axis(YAxis_Main)

  ax.Pane = 0

  Chart1.Series(0).YAxis = YAxis_Main


  Set ax = Chart1.Axis(3)

  ax.YAxis = True

  ax.Position = AxisPosition_Near

  ax.Pane = 1

  Chart1.Series(1).YAxis = 3




  Chart1.Panes(0).Title.text = "First pane"

  Chart1.Panes(1).Title.text = "Second pane"
