Re: Overlapping axis labels

I figured it out--series had different counts. Got it fixed and it looks good.

Overlapping axis labels

Delphi Seattle; TChart Pro 2016.18.160504

In the x-axis, I am getting labels overlapping with each other:

At first, the labels are proportionally spaced, but then are not.

Any suggestions?

Overlapping marks

In an application I write, I use marks to explain what the bars stand for, but sometimes, the marks disappear, I guess because there is not enough room for them without overlapping. In the financial services industry I work, it is a big problem not to label everything. Here is an example: http://www...

Setting Legend.VertSpacing causes wider Symbol

TChart 2016.18.160504 In the attached demo, a bitmap created from a TChart is copied to a TImage. The problem is the legend' symbol for each series is not square. They are too long. Remove this line: lChart.Legend.VertSpacing := 40; and it works fine--except the vertical spacing is too tight. Is thi...

Labels at bottom of chart are dropped

In a chart I am creating I have labels that are put with some descriptive text at the bottom of a chart: http://www.tbinc.com/misc/VCLTChartLabel1.png The problem is when I make the chart just a little narrower, even though there is plenty of room, a label gets dropped (notice the label under the 4t...

Re: Annotation left/right margins

Yes it does. I don't follow your bug DB much so I am not too familiar with how you manage it. When I search for all "Open" bugs for the VCL, there is quite a long list, 516. This bug is listed with an importance of enhancement. That sounds like it isn't too big of a deal to not address, especially i...

Annotation left/right margins

2016.18.160504

For the image below, the left & right margins are set to "20" "Percent Font"

Image

But the margins on the left and right are not the same. I would like the text to be centered with margins on both sides. How can I achieve this?

Annotation left/right margins

2016.18.160504 In the attached unit (unit1.pas) the annotation has the same margins on the and right (10% of the font) yet there is more white space on the right side of the annotation than the left side. Can this be fixed in an update? (I know I am not using the latest version--.19 broke my code an...

Re: Band Resizing and setting .Visible locks up display

(Argh... I've replied 2x to this and it isn't saving. Looks liek the attachment was 3k too big). I reworked the demo so that there are three options for updating the editor: 1) "None" (works fine), 2) "Every Other Time" (works fine), and 3) "Every Time" (does not work fine). Here is a video of what ...

Re: DPI and TeeCreateBitmap

This article talks about printing to the printer and specifically working with WMF/EMF images. I create a BMP that I put in a (ReportBuilder) report image. I need higher DPI settings, which I didn't see in the article. (I did read it twice, and searched for DPI after reading it. Am I embarrassing my...

Re: Band Resizing and setting .Visible locks up display

It is a very simplified version of a product I have. What has been frustrating is that the band resizing does not occur (it appears locked) when the editor's visibility is updated every time. I changed the code a little so that it toggles the .Visible property every other time, and it is much better...

Band Resizing and setting .Visible locks up display

In the attached demo when it initially runs resizing the TColorBandTool works fine--the editor gets the end value of the color band. If the checkbox "Toggle Visibility" is checked and the band is resized, the editor flashes but is never displays the end value until the mouse lets go of resizing the ...

DPI and TeeCreateBitmap

I use TChart.TeeCreateBitmap to create bitmaps for reports, but I sure would like to have more DPI when I do as the print outs do not look as good as my mock ups I create from Excel. (I need bitmaps as WMF does not render the transparent items properly). Is there anyway to control the DPI when print...

Problem between DevExpress' components and TChart

There is a real strange lockup of the UI when using a TColorBand on a TChart and DevExpress' TdxLayoutControl. It seems to be related to their layout control, but they do not have access to the Pro version of your components. Is there anyway they can get a copy of your components to test it? Ed Dres...

Re: Setting Pattern for TColor

I tried to create my own PNG file and load it in to the IDE but it did not tile it, rather it stretched the 20x20 for the whole band (which didn't look so great).

I look forward to hearing back from you.
