XE2, TChart 2012.06.120613

I am updating my help file with some new images and see that in the old image, the X axis labels did not overwrite, but in version I am using, there is a problem with X axis labels:


Is this a known issue? Any fix for it?

Hi TestAlways,

Which version number is the old version? Could you please attach a simple example project we can run "as-is" to reproduce the problem here and try to find a solution to it?

Thanks in advance.

I don't know the version it worked right.

Demo attached.

Hi Ed,

Thanks for the example project. This was probably due to some changes to allow text labels from all series in a chart. Prior to that only text labels from the first series were plotted. You can solve the issue populating your series in a slightly different way and use series values as labels:

Code: Select all

  lIdx := 2000;

  for lYear in FYears do
    lsrsClientValue.AddXY(lIdx, lYear.Value1, IntToStr(lIdx));

    if lYear.Value2 > 0 then
      lsrsSpouseValue.AddXY(lIdx, lYear.Value2, IntToStr(lIdx))
      lsrsSpouseValue.AddNullXY(lIdx, 0);

    if lYear.Value3 > 0 then
      lsrsBenesValue.AddXY(lIdx, lYear.Value3, IntToStr(lIdx))
      lsrsBenesValue.AddNullXY(lIdx, 0);

    if lYear.Value4 > 0 then
      lsrsGrandBenes.AddXY(lIdx, lYear.Value4, IntToStr(lIdx))
      lsrsGrandBenes.AddNullXY(lIdx, 0);

Alternatively, you could keep using AddNull() and manually set bottom axis range. Find attached the project with the modifications.
