TLineSeries with symbols

Post by bertrod » Mon Aug 11, 2008 8:34 am

Hello,

Is it possible to draw series like the ones on the following image ? It is quite useful for instance when the charts are printed in black/white.

Hi bertrod,

yes, there's the possibility to change make the Line series pointer visible and change its style. You can edit the Line Series using the Chart Editor, go to the Point tab and see the combo "Style" with all the predefined styles.
All of them can be assigned via code.

Hi Pep,

I see you mean showing the points over the line. It can be interesting, but it's not exactly what I need.

I have too many points, and I can't draw them all with symbols, but I would need to draw only symbols with the same distance between each of them.

Summary : I need

- a line which draws all points
- symbols on this line, but not on each point, only to print the curve in black/white


Maybe a trick in the code or something like this ?

Hi bertrod,

in that case, I'm afraid this is not going to be possible to do with the actual version, you can only to change the pen style to available styles.
I've added this as a new feature on our wish list ( add more pen styles like these ).
