Chart font is way to large

On a customer's computer I recently logged into the font sizes were way too large. The funny thing is is that she had normal DPI, and normal font size. Everything else in the software looked fine except the chart. Their Display Settings appeared to be the same as my computer but the chart appeared i...

Series marks with semi-transparent background

I would like to add a semi-transparent background to some marks on a chart, but keep the font non-transparent. The only setting I find for this is Series.Marks.Transparency, but it does both the background and the font.

Can this be achieved?

Thank you,

Ed Dressel

Re: Only seeing a legend

Thank you for your reply.

I would like to "balance" the two charts--so they are the same height. If the second one has the legend, is this possible?

Only seeing a legend

I create software for retirement planning. I have one scenario where two charts (2 TChart objects) are shown (both on the screen and in a report) that shows income on the top and balances down below (see below). http://www.tbinc.com/misc/ChartRetireYearsIncomeAndBalances.jpg There is no need to have...

Chart Drops Bar Labels

In the image below, labels ("A") are being dropped because the chart is not wide enough. I have a couple of questions: http://www.tbinc.com/misc/ChartDropsLabels.jpg 1) I remember there is a margin setting somewhere that increases the likelihood that they will be drawn (years ago support told me abo...

Re: Marks Show Wrong Values

I can't just take your next update and start running with it as it has to be tested.

Can I get the changes to the source code so I can fix it?

Recommendations on Fonts

I am changing fonts in my application and am curious about font usage in TCharts. For reports, I anticipate moving to Calibri for content and Calibri Light for headers/subheaders, but in my application, I am thinking of using the Windows recommended "Segoe" fonts. Does anyone have any thoughts on th...

Re: Marks Show Wrong Values

I am not sure if the bug what the version means--the version the bug is in or the version it is fixed in, but I am using version 2019.27.190530 and it is still in that version.

Re: Teechart with custom axes to ReportBuilder

I use RB and TChart in my app, but I don't have TCharts in my reports, I have TppImage objects and create WMFs with TChart in the application and then put the image into my report--it makes life a little easier (well, a lot easier). Here are some of my methodologies: 1) All my reporting happens in o...

Rendering WMF doesn't render icon well & Dragging lef/rgi

In the attached demo there is a thunderbolt icon that looks like I want it to on the chart. Q1) When I render it to WMF, the icon has an ugly white space around it (click on the Image tab will do this). I really want to keep it as a WMF to avoid pixelating when I print it. Any suggestions on how to ...
