Dual Y Axis questions

User (Legacy)

Recommended Posts

I'm working with the IE 2000 server demo and have a few questions. 

I'm running on an NT4.0 SP6 box acting as both client and server. My data

is coming from an Access database via a ADO recordset. The data set

contains six fields, five series with each series having 3,232 points. The

sixth series is the X coordinate. I'm using a Line type chart.

1. The series legend kept defaulting to the field names from my SQL query

instead of what I thought I was setting it to via the

ChartFX1.Series(0).Legend = "DC Voltage" statement. However when I set the

series legend text after I assigned the recordset to the chart object my

series legend displayed my desired text. Is this what you expect and if so


2. Can I have two series legends? One for each Y axis?

3. The AdjustScale parameter doesn't appear to work on AXIS_Y2 if it is

also applied to AXIS_Y. I get "nice" values on AXIS_Y but not AXIS_Y2.

Shouldn't I expect to get "nice" values on AXIS_Y2?

4. Is there an existing Command (e.g. CFX_ID_HORZGRID) for toggling the

AXIS_Y2 grid? I 've added a button to the toolbar for such a command. Do I

have to write my own command? I tried via the example in the docs but what

I've done doesn't work.

Following is the asp page contents.
