Question re: Y-axis Title


User (Legacy)

Recommended Posts

My chart sometimes needs to display a Y-axis title, and sometimes not.  But,

I've noticed a problem. If I:

1) display Chart #1 without a title, it looks OK.

2) display Chart #2 with a title, the title shows OK.

3) display Chart #1 again, without a title, the chart is shifted somewhat to

the right, with a noticeable "margin" on the left where the title from Chart

#2 was shown. No title is shown, but for all subsequent charts the control

is apparently leaving room for the title.

When I need to suppress the Y-axis title, I'm doing it like this:

cfxChart.Axis(AXIS_Y).Title = ""

Is there a way to suppress the title, and recover the space that it occupied

when switching from a Y-axis titled chart to one without a Y-axis title?

My environment is ChartFX ClientServer, with VB6.

TIA.

Hmmm...in that case, I would like to request that this be added for a future

version. As it now stands, if a chart sometimes displays a title, when a

new chart is shown without a title, there is a noticable margin where the

title was shown before. This means that the same chart, displayed on two

different occassions, will look slightly different due to the margins not

being the same.

Note: the same issue affects AXIS_Y2 - if that axis displays values and/or a

title, the space reserved for them is never reclaimed, even if subsequent

charts do not use that axis.

If you are interested, I can send you screen shots illustrating the problem.

Doh! You are correct...after playing around with the settings for LeftGap

and RightGap (and, making sure that the axis Title gets cleared before

setting LeftGap/RightGap), it does work just fine. Thanks!

BTW - Is version 6.2 for ClientServer available?
