User (Legacy) Posted February 22, 2002 Report Share Posted February 22, 2002 In ChartFX IE version 3.5, there is a property called DecimalsNum that enables you to specify the number of decimals to display on each of the axes and also for the Point Values (Balloon, Dialog and Data-Editor). In the new version of ChartFX, there are properties on the AXIS object that enable you to set the decimal precision for the axes, but I can't find where I can set the decimal precision for point values (I want more precision on the point values than I do on the axes). Am I missing where I can do this in the new version? Help! -- Stuart Thompson Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...

Software FX Posted February 22, 2002 Report Share Posted February 22, 2002 ChartFX uses the same precision for point values as for the axis "used" by the point (if a point is tied to the secondary axis its point values will show the number of decimals of the secondary axis). If you are not using the secondary axis, you could set your series to use the secondary axis (before passing the data) like this ' Pass your data chart.OpenDataEx COD_VALUES,1,2 chart.ValueEx(0,0) = 20 chart.ValueEx(0,1) = 22 chart.CloseData COD_VALUES chart.PointLabels = true chart.Series(0).YAxis = AXIS_Y2 ' Copy the settings from the Y axis to use the min-max calculated by ChartFX chart.Axis(AXIS_Y2).Min = chart.Axis(AXIS_Y).Min chart.Axis(AXIS_Y2).Max = chart.Axis(AXIS_Y).Max ' Hide this axis and set the number of decimals chart.Axis(AXIS_Y2).Visible = false chart.Axis(AXIS_Y2).Decimals = 4 -- Regards JC Software FX Support "Stuart Thompson" <stuart_thompson@transcanada.com> wrote in message news:3C768853.8B3A6BF9@transcanada.com... > In ChartFX IE version 3.5, there is a property called DecimalsNum that > enables you to specify the number of decimals to display on each of the > axes and also for the Point Values (Balloon, Dialog and Data-Editor). > > In the new version of ChartFX, there are properties on the AXIS object > that enable you to set the decimal precision for the axes, but I can't > find where I can set the decimal precision for point values (I want more > precision on the point values than I do on the axes). > > Am I missing where I can do this in the new version?

User (Legacy) Posted February 22, 2002 Author Report Share Posted February 22, 2002 That would work except that I am plotting an X/Y (scatter) graph I would like both axes to show no decimal points on the axes label (as I have set the starting, ending and step values for the axes in such a way that they only use whole numbers)... but I want the data editor and the point values to show the full precision of both X and Y values (in this case, 3 decimal places). Any suggestions? Worst case, I will switch the axes to use 3 decimal places, but it seems a shame to extend the size of the axes labels by an additional 3 digits... it makes the graph look untidy and will seem unnecessary to the user since the digits behind the decimal point will always be 0 on the axes.

Software FX Posted February 26, 2002 Report Share Posted February 26, 2002 If your data has a well known range you may want to try setting the labels manually for both the X and Y axes. You will have to assign labels such as "1" "2" "3" , etc. and make the LabelValue property of the axis the same as your step. We have added support for two formats (a separate LabelsFormat and DataFormat including number of decimals and custom formatting) to our next version of ChartFX now in beta.
