Weekends skipped - date labels vanish


Recommended Posts

I have daily data (date, value) stored in a DataTable.

I assign the DataTable as the DataSource to a ChartFX Chart.

As the data is weekly only, I want to skip the showing of weekend gaps, so I found and used the following:

chart.ExtraStyle |= ChartFX.WinForms.ChartStyles.ForceDataDriven;

This worked great in removing the weekend gaps, however, now my XAxis no longer shows any date labels.

I've tried dozens of combinations of this and that to no avail.

How to get the Dates to show up in the AxisX ?


ChartFX.WinForms.Chart chart = new ChartFX.WinForms.Chart();

chart.Width = 400;

chart.Height = 300;

chart.Titles.Add(new ChartFX.WinForms.TitleDockable());

chart.Titles[0].Text = title;

chart.Titles[0].TextColor = Color.Black;

chart.Titles[0].Font = new Font("Arial", 11, FontStyle.Bold);

chart.Titles[0].Separation = 5;

chart.Titles[0].Alignment = StringAlignment.Center;

chart.Series[0].Stacked = true;

chart.Series[0].Gallery = ChartFX.WinForms.Gallery.Bar;

chart.Series[0].Color = Color.Green;

chart.Series[0].AxisY = chart.AxisY2;

chart.Series[1].Stacked = true;

chart.Series[1].Gallery = ChartFX.WinForms.Gallery.Bar;

chart.Series[1].Color = Color.Gray;

chart.Series[1].AxisY = chart.AxisY2;

chart.Series[2].MarkerShape = ChartFX.WinForms.MarkerShape.Marble;

chart.Series[2].MarkerSize = 2;

chart.Series[2].Color = Color.Red;

chart.Series[2].Gallery = ChartFX.WinForms.Gallery.Lines;

chart.Series[2].AxisY = chart.AxisY;

chart.DataSource = dt;

chart.LegendBox.Visible = true;

chart.AxisY.LabelsFormat.Format = ChartFX.WinForms.AxisFormat.Number;

chart.AxisX.LabelsFormat.Format = ChartFX.WinForms.AxisFormat.Date;

chart.AxisX.LabelsFormat.CustomFormat = "MM/dd";

chart.ExtraStyle |= ChartFX.WinForms.ChartStyles.ForceDataDriven;

Data looks like this:

"6/17/2011 12:00:00",1,-2,44.4

"6/20/2011 12:00:00",2,-2,34.4

"6/21/2011 12:00:00",5,-3,24.4

"6/22/2011 12:00:00",6,-4,42.4

"6/23/2011 12:00:00",3,-4,46.4

"6/24/2011 12:00:00",2,-4,43.4

Thanks for any help.
