TreeMap Suggestion

Post by TimeAcct » Mon May 31, 2010 5:46 am

Hi

A feature that would be nice to have would be the ability to see a hint for a part of the TreeMap if you hover over it.
Take directories for example - some might either have long names or the item on the TreeMap is too narrow. It would be nice to hover over an item and see the full name in some sort of hint window.

Is there a way of doing that already?

Hi Bradley,

When the series' clicked method will work fine with this series, you'll be able to use MarksTip tool to do this.

Hi Bradley,

As an update, with the changes commented here, the TMarksTipTool works now fine with this series.

Do you have a sample of how this tool works?
I went into the Series Editor - but when I turn on the Marks to Visible - it turns them all on - all the time - which is way too messy :) So - I would like to show the information only wnen I hover over a element in the series.


I have the source version installed - but have not installed the full version - as havivng both the full and source versions installed causes issues around Report Builder and their version being compiled with a different versions... (at least that is the error message).

Hi Bradley,

The MarksTip tool can be found, through the editor at the Tools Tab, Series section. Here you have a picture:

FYI, we recommend the VCL source code customers to install the binary version first, to get the demos and the documentation. Then, we recommend to install the sources, with TeeRecompile utility, to use the sources.

In the New Features Demo, you'll find some MarksTip tool demos at All features\Welcome !\Tools\Mark tips

Thank you - I eventually did find it :)

However, I also created a new posting. It would seem that the MarksTip is using the Special value - not the actual value for the Tips Value.

So - if you have code that is something like
TreeMapSeries.Add(1000,'DirectoryA',1,clRed)

It should be using the 1000 for the tip (at least I think so) - but it uses the 1.
