Serial Legend Titles Overlap

User (Legacy)

Recommended Posts

When trying to restrict the amount of space the series legend uses (through

using WordBreak, AutoSize=false, etc.), the titles appear to overlap each

other. This occurs when a title is more than 1 line long.

If I set the Serial Legend Box Obj's alignment to spread, the titles display

fine. I would like them to appear at the top of the page, though.

Enclosed is a pic and the source used to set these attributes.

Thanks in advance.


'* set type of chart and look

ChartPie.Gallery = SoftwareFX.ChartFX.Gallery.Pie

ChartPie.Chart3D = True

'* set text attributes

ChartPie.Titles(0).LineGap = 15

ChartPie.Titles(0).DrawingArea = False

ChartPie.Titles(0).Font = New Font("Arial", 9)

'* display labels outside pie and hide lines

ChartPie.PointLabels = True

Dim m_Pie As SoftwareFX.ChartFX.Internet.Server.GalleryObj.Pie

m_Pie = ChartPie.GalleryObj

m_Pie.LabelsInside = False

m_Pie.ShowLines = False

'* display and place the legend

ChartPie.SerLegBox = True

ChartPie.SerLegBoxObj.Docked = SoftwareFX.ChartFX.Docked.Left

ChartPie.SerLegBoxObj.ToolBorder = SoftwareFX.ChartFX.ToolBorder.External

ChartPie.SerLegBoxObj.AutoSize = False

ChartPie.SerLegBoxObj.Width = 140

ChartPie.SerLegBoxObj.Alignment = SoftwareFX.ChartFX.ToolAlignment.Near

ChartPie.SerLegBoxObj.Flags = SoftwareFX.ChartFX.LegendBoxFlag.WordBreak



ChartPie.Width = New Unit(425)

ChartPie.Height = New Unit(250)

'* data

ChartPie.SerLegBoxObj.DrawingArea = False

ChartPie.Titles(0).Text = "Title Here"

ChartPie.OpenData(SoftwareFX.ChartFX.COD.Values, 1, iCount)

ChartPie.Value(0, 0) = 0.72

ChartPie.Series(0).Legend = "Encoding ASCIIs"

ChartPie.Value(0, 1) = 0.72

ChartPie.Series(1).Legend = "Overstating Functional Items"

ChartPie.Value(0, 2) = 0.72

ChartPie.Series(2).Legend = "Emergency House Visits"

ChartPie.Point(iCount - 1).Color = Color.White

ChartPie.Point(iCount - 1).AlternateColor = Color.Gray

ChartPie.Point(iCount - 1).Pattern = Drawing2D.HatchStyle.Cross
