Need help with boxplot!

I am trying to use the boxplot but having no luck at all.

I have measurements which range from 0.0 to 1.0. Measurements are

grouped by week, each week in a separate series. I would like to

display a boxplots, one for each week, for many weeks, in one chart.

I open the chart for loading data like this:

chart.OpenData(SoftwareFX.ChartFX.COD.Values |

SoftwareFX.ChartFX.COD.AllocHidden, numberOfWeeks, -1);

Then each week is given a unique seriesIndex int value, and I load

values for each series like this:

chart.Value[seriesIndex, 0] = Convert.ToDouble(rangeValue);

Now, this is "jagged" data. Not all the series have the same number of


I close the dataset:


Then I add the boxplot:

statistics.Chart = chart;

chart.GalleryObj = statistics.Gallery.BoxPlot;

My chart is blank! What am I doing wrong?!

In principle everything seems ok. You are passing the data the right way,

each series will become a box-plot, you will get as many box-plots as series

you originally have.

The only thing I can think of being wrong is the data itself. Each series

must contain a certain amount of different values in order for the box-plot

to be calculated.

Please verify the data of your chart by switching to a regular chart type

(e.g. bar chart) and turning on the data editor.

Please attach the data if you can't figure out what is wrong.
