Getting Ternary Series to work

Post by Errol » Tue Feb 12, 2019 2:09 am

Good afternoon
I am trying to get the Ternary Series to compile. I have attached my code, based on the example in Features. No errors are reported but it throws up an error in TeCanvas, to do with TextOut. I would be grateful if you could take a look at this.
Thanks and regards
Errol

Code: Select all

unit TernarySeries;

{$I TeeDefs.inc}

interface

uses
  {$IFNDEF LINUX}
  Winapi.Windows, Winapi.Messages,
  {$ENDIF}
  System.SysUtils, System.Classes, System.Variants,
  {$IFDEF CLX}
  QGraphics, QControls, QForms, QDialogs, QExtCtrls, QStdCtrls, QComCtrls,
  {$ELSE}
  Vcl.Graphics, Vcl.Controls, Vcl.Forms, Vcl.Dialogs, Vcl.ExtCtrls, Vcl.StdCtrls, Vcl.ComCtrls,
  {$ENDIF}
  Base, TeEngine, Series, TeeProcs, Chart, TeeTools, TeeSurfa, TeeTernary,
  VclTee.TeeGDIPlus;

type
  TTernarySeriesForm = class(TBaseForm)
    Chart1: TChart;
    Panel1: TPanel;
    Button1: TButton;
    Series1: TTernarySeries;
    procedure Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
    procedure FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
    procedure Chart1BeforeDrawAxes(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  TernarySeriesForm: TTernarySeriesForm;

implementation

{$IFNDEF CLX}
{$R *.DFM}
{$ELSE}
{$R *.xfm}
{$ENDIF}

Uses EditChar, TeeConst;

procedure TTernarySeriesForm.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  EditSeries(Self,Series1);
end;

procedure TTernarySeriesForm.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
  inherited;
  Series1.FillSampleValues(10);
  Series1.UseColorRange:=false;

  Series1.Pointer.Style:=psCircle;
  Series1.Pointer.Transparency:=20;

  Series1.TernaryStyle:=tsBubble;
  Series1.TernaryLegendStyle:=tlsBubbleWeight;

  Chart1.Legend.Title.Text.Add(TeeMsg_TernaryMarkRadius + ', ' + TeeMsg_TernaryMarkWeight);
  Chart1.Legend.Title.Visible:=true;
end;

procedure TTernarySeriesForm.Chart1BeforeDrawAxes(Sender: TObject);
begin
  Chart1.Legend.Title.Visible := Series1.ColorEachPoint;
end;

initialization
  RegisterClass(TTernarySeriesForm);
end.

Hello,

I find no errors with the attached project in RAD 10.3 Rio and TeeChart v2018.26.
testTernary.zip
(2.09 KiB) Downloaded 76 times
Could you please arrange a simple example project we can run as-is to reproduce the problem here?
Thanks in advance.

Hello Yeray

Thank you for your comment and suggestions. I apologise for not sending the complete project. However, I managed to get it to run by adding VCLTee to Unit scope names in Delphi Options | Library.

Unfortunately, I am unable to run the program you provided. I am using Delphi XE10.1 Berlin and have just downloaded and installed TeeChart 2018.26. The error I get is shown here

Any assistance gratefully received.

Best regards

Hello Errol,

That error seems to suggest you don't have the latest TeeChart packages installed in Berlin because the HoverElement property was introduced in v2018.26.
Anyway, you should be able to manually edit the .dfm and remove the line where the HoverElement property is used. then you should be able to load the form without problems.

Good afternoon Yeray

Thank you for your reply. You are quite right - during installation I was distracted when asked to run TeeRecompile and somehow assumed it had executed. Many apologies. However, I still have problems:
1. When I run TeeRecompile I initially get this error.
SDK_hpp_Header_files_missing.jpg
Windows header files missing
SDK_hpp_Header_files_missing.jpg (207.55 KiB) Viewed 1456 times
I ignored this as I am not using any C++ projects (and the link provided is not helpful as I do not have a current subscription for Delphi XE10.1).
However, I still get an error when running your projects, as shown below:
[dcc32 Fatal Error] VCLTee.TeeHtml.pas(933): F2039 Could not create output file 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Steema Software\Steema TeeChart Pro VCL FMX Source Code 2018.26\Source\VCL\VCLTee.TeeHtml.dcu
If I manually copy VCLTee.TeeHtml.dcu from Steema TeeChart Pro VCL FMX Source Code 2018.26\Compiled\Delphi24.win32\Lib to \Source\VCL then this error is replaced by another missing dcu.
If I specify Steema Software\Steema TeeChart Pro VCL FMX Source Code 2018.26\Source\VCL as the folder to Copy binary files to, then your test program compiles and runs. It is not obvious that I have to do this, as there is no documentation on TeeCompile at all (INSTALL.TXT is not present).
2. Somewhere in the process of installing the latest version of TeeChart, something has broken in my regular programs. I get the following error when loading forms that use VCLTee components.
Form_Error1.jpg
Error opening form that uses VCLTee units

Have you any ideas what might have gone wrong here?
Thanks and regards

Good afternoon Yeray
I have solved the problems with some forms containing TeeChart components not opening. Evidently a component library had to be rebuilt before these forms would work. Many apologies for any inconvenience caused.
Thanks and regards

The error indicating "could not create output file ..." suggests a lack of permissions. If you still have problems, I'd try running TeeRecompile "as administrator".

If you still have problems, I would try to reinstall TeeChart using the "..\Compiled" Relative Destination as per default, and "as administrator" to avoid permissions limitations.

Great! Don't hesitate to let us know if you still find problems with it.
