Problems with multi Axes

Post by Friis » Wed Nov 05, 2014 8:52 pm

Hi,

1) I add 4 series and connect these 4 series to 4 custom axes - 1 series to one custom axes
2) I use a PlaceAxes in order to put the axes in the correct positioning
3) When I first "Activate = false" and then "active =true" using 4 checkBoxes - the axes positioning is completely wrong - eventhough I call PlaceAxes after the "Activate - deactive" series.

the code is below here:

Code: Select all

Hi,

I have added two images illustrating the problems with the axes.

Kind regards - HH Friis

Hello!

Your code needs some more work, but using only checkBox1 I think it will function as expected with the following two changes:

1)

Code: Select all

      for (int i = 0; i < tChart1.Axes.Custom.Count; i++)
      {
        tChart1.Axes.Custom[i].Title.Angle = 90;
        tChart1.Axes.Custom[i].PositionUnits = Steema.TeeChart.PositionUnits.Pixels;
        tChart1.Axes.Custom[i].Grid.Visible = false;
        tChart1.Axes.Custom[i].FixedLabelSize = false;
      }

      tChart1.Draw(); //<- here

      PlaceAxes(0, 0, 0, 0, 0);

    }
2)

Code: Select all

      if (tChart1[nSeries].Active)
      {
        MaxLabelsWidth = tChart1.Axes.Custom[nSeries].MaxLabelsWidth();
        lenghtTicks = tChart1.Axes.Custom[nSeries].Ticks.Length;
        extraSpaceBetweenTitleAndLabels = 0; //(tChart1.Axes.Custom[nSeries].Title.Width);//<- here
        if (tChart1.Axes.Custom[nSeries].OtherSide)
        {

Hi,

Thnx for helping me out ;-)

it works, however, I had to change the checkBoxes onclickevent to:

Code: Select all

            tChart1[3].Visible = checkBox4.Checked;
            tChart1.Axes.Custom[3].Visible = tChart1[3].Visible;
            tChart1.Draw(); //<- here
            PlaceAxes(0, 0, 0, 0, 0);

Hi Christopher,

I'm sorry but it still doesn't work

1) Try to start with all 4 series active = all 4 chckboxes checked.
2) Then uncheck first checkbox4, then uncheck checkbox3, then uncheck checkbox2 and finally uncheck checkbox1 - (series4.Active = false; then series3.Active = false; then series2.active=false, ect...)
The order in which you unchck is very important!!
3) Activate series 3 / check ckeckbox3
3) as you can see the axes positioning is still incorrect...??

Re: Problems with multi Axes

Post by Christopher » Thu Nov 06, 2014 2:58 pm

Hello,

To resolve the issue you speak of, all that is necessary is the following change:

Code: Select all

    private void checkBox3_CheckedChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
      tChart1[2].Active = checkBox3.Checked;
      tChart1.Axes.Custom[2].Visible = tChart1[2].Active;
      tChart1.Draw(); //<- here
      PlaceAxes(2, 0, 0, 0, 0); //<- here
    }
As I say, I think your code needs a little more work before being robust.

Re: Problems with multi Axes

Hi,

I have tried to change it in accordance with your instructions, see code below

1) Start with all series active=true
2) then try to inactive series 3 and re-activate the series (uncheck checkbox3, then recheck checkbox 3)

That makes the axes overlap...??

Code: Select all


        private void checkBox1_CheckedChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            tChart1[0].Visible = checkBox1.Checked;
            tChart1.Axes.Custom[0].Visible = tChart1[0].Visible;
            tChart1.Draw(); //<- here
            PlaceAxes(0, 0, 0, 0, 0);
        }

        private void checkBox2_CheckedChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            tChart1[1].Visible = checkBox2.Checked;
            tChart1.Axes.Custom[1].Visible = tChart1[1].Visible;
            tChart1.Draw(); //<- here
            PlaceAxes(1, 0, 0, 0, 0);
        }

        private void checkBox3_CheckedChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            tChart1[2].Visible = checkBox3.Checked;
            tChart1.Axes.Custom[2].Visible = tChart1[2].Visible;
            tChart1.Draw(); //<- here
            PlaceAxes(2, 0, 0, 0, 0);
        }

        private void checkBox4_CheckedChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            tChart1[3].Visible = checkBox4.Checked;
            tChart1.Axes.Custom[3].Visible = tChart1[3].Visible;
            tChart1.Draw(); //<- here
            PlaceAxes(3, 0, 0, 0, 0);
        }
