Improving TChartEditor/Making App Development Easier

Post by Charlie SEI » Fri Jan 05, 2024 5:40 pm

Hi!

I'm a longtime user of TeeChart (> 20 years!). I have a suggestion that I think could help developers to work with TeeChart.

When developing apps, I tend to use the TChartEditor component to prototype new features, but I often struggle with how the settings in the TChartEditor map to the properties and sub-properties of the TChart and TSeries objects.

So the suggestion is this - could you add documentation to the TChartEditor component that tells people how each feature there maps to TChart and TSeries properties? I realize that this info would only be useful to developers - not to end users, so perhaps it could be shown only in a specific mode (e.g., switched-on in a debugging/advanced mode).

Hope you like the suggestion - keep up the great work!

Charlie

PS - Apologies for also posting this in VCL forum.

Hello Charlie,

I understand it would be interesting to find a way to easily show the properties modified. However, I'm not sure it could be done easily. Also note you can open the form in "text mode" and see all the modified properties in the chart and series.
