Force Grid to Next Major Tick Point

User (Legacy)

Recommended Posts

I know I can set this but I have a large set of data values and users can


dynamically with that data (using ChartFX internet).

The max value is only 700 in this single case but I want to

make the graph extend to the next step value and draw that on the Y axis not


what the datasets maxvalue is.

I could find some rounding method for the values and manually work it out

(not sure how yet) but I would be nice for it to be automated.

Can it be done by ChartFX internet?

The thing is this, we do adjust the scale to the next "round" number when

you call AdjustScale (or CloseData) but we only go up to 10% more. So if

your largest value is 680 you will get 700 as the max but if your value is

610 you wont (90 is more than 10 percent of 610). We do this to prevent

excessive waste of space, which is what most people want in our experience.

You can do your own rounding algorithm if you want to go beyond this barrier

(10%). To round it you can do:

Dim d As Double

d = ChartFX1.Axis(AXIS_Y).Max - ChartFX1.Axis(AXIS_Y).Min

Dim nDigits As Integer

nDigits = Int(Log(d) / Log(10))

Dim dPow As Double

dPow = 10 ^ nDigits

ChartFX1.Axis(AXIS_Y).Max = Int((ChartFX1.Axis(AXIS_Y).Max / dPow) + 0.99) *
