Disjoint Axis?

Hi,

Is it possible to set up a disjoint Y-Axis? The example below shows what I need the graph to look like.

0|

|

-ve |

|

-1 or 1|--------------------------------------------------------------

|

+ve |

|

0|

At present, we convert the values so we have a continuous scale and then render the chart but change the labels on the Y-Axis. This looks fine but means that the DataEditor cannot be used and one cannot zoom in on points and find the actual value.

One option may be to somehow create two axes and plot the same information twice once on each axis. The horizontal axis is time.

Hi

All numbers are between -1 and +1.

+ve - translates positive numbers between 0 and 1

-ve - tranlates negative numbers between 0 and -1

There are no numbers outside for this range. +1 and -1 are really the same

point and represent the centre of the scale. +1 is used by default for both

+1 and -1.

Positive numbers are displayed below the horizontal axis and negative

numbers above the horizontal axis.

I do not see a better solution here. What you are currently doing seems to

be the only way to achieve this.

Is this a line chart ?

If it is a scatter (no connection between lower and upper halves) you could

use two different panes (available in Chart FX 6.2). All negative points go

in one series and all positive in another. Then you define 2 Y-Axis, one

going from 0 to 1 the other going from -1 to 0 and assign each series

respectively. I don't really know if this will do what you are looking for

but it is just another idea.

Hi,

You got me thinking. We work in the electrical industry and are trying to

produce power factor plots. I used the idea of 2 axes and created a plot

similar to what I require. I split the Power Factor series into two

different series call Lead and Lag where Lead is the positive values and Lag

is the negative values.

This plot would probably be fine but we would also like to overlay the power

factor plot with other values that use a different scale. So then, I will

need three or more Y-Axes to show all the required plots simultaneously. Can

I have more that two Y-Axes?

Regards,
