hmm. good idea.

This sounds like what I can use.

My application reads data from a machine, indicating what light wavelength has

been read, and the associated values. The user has the option of choosing the

wavelength values between 200 and 1000. What I want to show, is a graph that

may contain several series that may overlap in wavelength values, or not

overlap at all, representing gaps in a series to some extent.

Are there any major performance hits if I fill the graph with a set # of

points, that may or

may not actually be used? My thought is to set all the points to CHART_HIDDEN,

and then just fill them in as necessary.

BTW, BCB 5.0 also re-declares several of the enumerated types, which produces

several compile errors if inclusion of chartfx.h as a whole via #include

statements difficult. The workaround is obvious, but you may want to include

that as a helpful hint on your support website. (which is really useful by the
