Smoothing mode

Post by patronas » Thu Mar 07, 2019 12:34 pm

I am confused about the smoothing mode:
The java Doc says:

Code: Select all

public void setSmoothingMode(boolean value)
Sets the type of rendering used to display the Chart depending on whether speed, display quality or antialiasing is required.
How can boolean distingusoihe between three modes.
The same is for

Code: Select all

public boolean getSmoothingMode()
wich the doc states:
AntiAlias - Specifies antialiased rendering.
Default - Specifies the default mode.
HighQuality - Specifies high quality, low speed rendering.
HighSpeed - Specifies high speed, low quality rendering.
Invalid - Specifies an invalid mode.
None - Specifies no antialiasing.
Default value: HighSpeed
how can this be boolean?

The reason I ask is, that currently the charts are not smoothed at all even with

Code: Select all

chart.getAspect().setSmoothingMode(true)
So I am wondering if I am making a mistake.

Hello,

The documentation is incorrect. Apologies for the mistake, we'll correct it. The documentation has been copied from another version incorrectly. SmoothingMode is boolean for Java SWT and smooths text and plot.

We'll check if there's a problem with it and get back to this thread.

Thanks for the update. Here a sceenshot of a donut chart and the configuration:

Code: Select all

 chart.getAspect().setSmoothingMode(true);
    chart.getAspect().setTextSmooth(true);
    chart.getAspect().setView3D(false);
    chart.getAspect().setOrthogonal(true);
    chart.getLegend().setVisible(false);
    chart.getHeader().setText("");
    chart.getPanel().getBevel().setOuter(BevelStyle.NONE);
    chart.getPanel().setMarginTop(0);

Hello,

We are investigating. The TeeChart smoothing method appears to be calling correctly the underlying graphics class, we can note a barely discernible difference (before/after) so something is processing; but it is not the response we would expect.

Hello,

I'll send you a test Graphics3D.java unit so you can test it.
Please use it to substitute your copy of the unit at your "SWT\com\steema\teechart\drawing" folder.

Hello and thank you for the test version. It does in fact look much better. There still seem to be some minor issues with the smoothing, but the overall look is much better.
