Re: Is the TColorBandTool broken in TeeChart Pro 2014?

Thank you for the elaborate reply. I am confused by your observation: The only attachment to Bug #758 is attachment #199 : Please note that the attachment is a workaround . Since you cannot add the (corrupted?) frame at designtime, you have to create and add it at runtime. This is what the attachmen...

TSeriesRegionTool and a series with null values

Examine the following image: Just a TLineSeries (orange border) with some null values in between. I added a region tool. It fills the region from start to finish, as if there are no null values. tseriesregiontool.png Is there anything I could do about it? I guess I'll probably have to look for "hole...

Re: Is the TColorBandTool broken in TeeChart Pro 2014?

I have a related question: Since I'm making heavy use of frames, I still don't dare to migrate from TeeChart2013 to TeeChart2014. Are there other possibilities of components without names? I somehow remember the TScrollPagerTool also creating anonymous components in the dfm. I'm very afraid because ...

Re: TeeChart 2014 and FastReport 4.9

Have you contacted Fast-Report support team to get assistance on this? I once bugged them by using a support ticket and they sent me a new "recompile.exe" which was able to recompile for XE5. Regarding XE6, I have lamented and ranted several times on their support forum, but it seems pretty much de...

Re: TeeChart 2014 and FastReport 4.9

I have completely given up on using Fast Report together with TeeChart Pro. The recompile tool of Fast Report has been broken in the Embarcadero Edition for XE5 as well as XE6.

Re: How to clone a chart if it has tools?

Thank you for your reply :) The problem is indeed the same, I however don't quite understand your workaround. I find it much easier to clone all tools and check them if they're an instance of TTeeCustomToolSeries or TTeeCustomToolAxis and adjust them to the new chart, if necessary. This way, I now h...

How to clone a chart if it has tools?

The method procedure CloneChart(Dest, Origin: TCustomChart; AOwner: TComponent; ForceManualData: Boolean); from VclTee.Chart makes it easy to make a deep copy of a chart. Difficult to find, but very cool. 8) I have two questions: What does the parameter ForceManualData stand for? The documentation d...

Re: Is the TColorBandTool broken in TeeChart Pro 2014?

Thank you for your reply. Steema being aware of it means a lot. I have upgraded from 2014.11.140425 BETA to 2014.11.140512 and it now seems to work flawlessly when creating and adding the TFrame at runtime. I think with a bit of additional work, I'll be able to temporarily work around the issue. The...

Re: Is the TColorBandTool broken in TeeChart Pro 2014?

Hi there. I know that there are probably a lot of "criticals" or "show stoppers" out there. Can you give a rough estimate about the priority of this report (758)? Do you have any hints how one could work around it or even fix it? I tried understanding the sources but I have great trouble understandi...

Re: Is the TColorBandTool broken in TeeChart Pro 2014?

Thank you very much for your quick response. The workaround you posted (adding the frame with the corrupted DFM at runtime) does not seem to work, however. It still bails out with an access violation when "trying to read axisID of TColorLineTool". I have added the callstack to the bug report. It sho...

It's only the source code, you're most probably only seeing it if you have access to the source code :!:

Is the TColorBandTool broken in TeeChart Pro 2014?

I'm really sorry if I'm cluttering up the forum. This is most probably clearly stuff for the bug tracker. I reported it as #758 : Place a chart on a TFrame Add a series Goto Tools -> Add -> Axis -> Color Band Add the frame on a form Does the application crash on startup? TeeChart creates a TColorLin...

Re: Strange Behavior of the TColorBandTool

I have not yet updated to the 2014 release. I am however, making extensive use of Color Band because they're cool. Do you guys have a recommendation whether one should update or wait for the next release? By the way, I am also a sourcecode customer but I honestly have no clue how it should be used i...

Re: Modifying TAxisItem has no effect on the rendered chart

Thank you!

It should however be noted that Setting an axis to Manual removes all the (previously generated) automatic Axis items and I will have to create and add them myself. However, that works like a charm.

Thanks a ton!

Best regards.

Modifying TAxisItem has no effect on the rendered chart

Using the chart editor on the form designer, you can freely alter value and text of TAxisItem s. See attached picture. That's pretty cool. I am however unable to do this at runtime: As an example, I'd like to shift every TAxisItem of the bottom axis by 0.5 to the right. Please see the following code...
