How to specify the coordinate origin

Post by rubby » Thu Feb 27, 2014 2:08 am

Hello,

I wan to draw a graph whose left axis and bottom axis cross at point(15,10). Please refer to "correct.png".
However, when i use the following code, the axis of graph are not at the correct position. please refer to "wrong.png".

I create a method "setXYAxisCross" to implement the function.

do i misunderstand the use of
setPositionUnits();
setRelativePosition();

Code: Select all

Luckily, i finally make it work correctly now. :)

// bottom.setRelativePosition(y);
bottom.setRelativePosition(left.iEndPos-y);

// left.setRelativePosition(x);
left.setRelativePosition(x-bottom.iStartPos);

I hope this poster will be useful for the guy who needs this function too.

I think how to specify the coordinate origin is a good function for the user.
will teechart add this function into source code?

Next step, when the axis is change to log or up and down, how can i catch these kinds of events to
refresh the coordinate origin?

Thanks.

I think the "addChartPaintListener()" will catch these events, e.g., the axis is upside down.
However, it fails. Do you have any idea?

Thanks.

I'm glad to hear you found it. And thanks for sharing.

As you've seen it's not very difficult to calculate the pixel that corresponds to a given value and then to move the axis to that position. Being it quite easy we prefer to keep it as it is for the moment.

Let me explain the problematic if we implement what you suggest.
In your example you'll notice that, if you scroll or zoom in the chart, the axes remain in the same position, so they do not cross at the same values any more. This is the default behaviour of TeeChart. If you want the axes to always cross at the same coordinates, you/teechart will have to recalculate the axes positions in the scroll and zoom events. But then you'll be able to scroll the chart to a point that an axis will be out of the ChartRect, so you can find the case where you'll have a chart without axes visible quite easily, isn't it?

If you are changing the properties in code, you already know when this happens.
If you are looking for an event being fired when you change some property in the editor, I'm afraid there isn't such an event.
On the other hand, if you know what properties to check, you can check their values before and after opening the editor, and perform the desired actions then. Ie:

Code: Select all

        editItem.addActionListener(new ActionListener() {

            public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
                if (chart != null) {
                    //save properties to check
                    ChartEditor.editChart(chart.getChart());
                    //check if there are changes in the properties
                }
            }
        });
