Is this possible?

Hi all,

I was just wondering if it would be possible to get the formatted string

representation of a date or number back from chartfx with out having to show

a graph using the COM implementation of ChartFX. I am trying to make a

control to use in conjunction with chartfx that will allow our end users to

specify their own format masks ( they won't be using chartfx's control to do

this ). I was hoping that they could type in a mask and then pass this mask

to chartfx and a date or number and have the formatted string made using

this mask returned to me so that I can the send it back to the end user, so

that they can see the results of their input immediately. Thank you for

your time.

Where do you get the parameters that can be used to specify a format mask?

Is this from windows, or is it of your own design? Also how does ChartFx

output the formatted values for x and y axes( is this also windows api? )

Thank you

The GetNumberFormat Windows API call will help you format numbers but it

uses a structure as opposed to a string representation to specify the

formatting options.
