Questions about ChartFX Lite


User (Legacy)

Recommended Posts

I have a few questions about ChartFX Lite:

1) The print button is not shown in the toolbar. Does ChartFX Lite come

with this feature? The screenshots included in the Lite tutorial show the

toolbar having a print button.

2) Does ChartFX Lite have a paging feature? For example, lets say you're

charting the height of people (in a bar chart). If you have 1000 people

that you're charting, the data on the chart will be very small if the

results dont span multiple pages.

3) From the help file, I noticed the 2 main methods of populating the chart

are DataSource (with DataType) and OpenData. I'm dealing with a table that

has a lot of fields. As a result, OpenData didn't seem too useful.

DataSource would be useful, however you have to explicitly exclude any

column's you wish not to have in your chart (with DataType[index]). So not

only do you have to explicitly exclude the columns that you don't want in

the graph, but you also have to reference them by number/index. I was

hoping I could just pass the data table to the data source and tell it the

column names to use in the graph, all other columns not specified would be

automatically excluded. Is this possible with ChartFX Lite?

You have to specify the columns you don't want by number and cannot specify 

by name correct?

That is correct, unfortunately, we have discussed this issue and plan to 

address it in a future version by changing the indexer to use names (as well

as positions). This will also allow to bind to business objects where

properties have names but no position.
