TPolarBarSeries

Post by Sean » Tue Jun 08, 2004 4:09 pm

Hi, I'm trying to plot a PolarBarSeries of wave data which comprises of wave direction in degrees (the Angle) against wave height in meters (the Radius). The problem I have is that the directional component is being plotted anticlockwise even when I set the series labels to clockwise.
Is there any way to get the direction(Angle) to increment clockwise from north so that 0 deg is north, 90 deg it east, 180 is south and 270 is west.

Regards,
Sean Palmer.

Hi Sean,

you can do this :

Code: Select all

Series1.CircleLabels := true;
Series1.ClockWiseLabels := true;
Series1.RotationAngle := 90;

Hi Pep,

That's exactly how I have the series parameters set already, the labels are displaying correctly but the data is still displaying the directions anti-clockwise.
If I plot an angle of 299 degrees and radius of 1.0 the PolatBarSeries visually plots the angle at 61 degrees.

Cheers,
Sean.

Hi, Sean.

You can use series OnAfterAdd event to "transform" values from acw to cw. This involves the following operation:
angle = 360 - angle

Something like this:

Code: Select all

procedure TForm1.Series1AfterAdd(Sender: TChartSeries;
  ValueIndex: Integer);
begin
    Sender.XValue[ValueIndex] := 360 - Sender.XValue[ValueIndex];
end;

Hi Marjan,

Thanks for that, I was basically doing the same but on a calculated field in the dataset.

The point that I think should be raised is that if Series1.ClockWiseLabels is set to true, then the dataset should automatically be converted from acw to cw.

Cheers,
Sean.
