Get Chart Scale To Resize When Data Updated?

Feb 28, 2012

What I have managed to do is currently display a chart with 3 bars on it linked to textboxes what have numerical values in them when the form is loaded. i.e TextBox1 has an initial value set in it's properties of 10, TextBox2 has a value of 20, TextBox3 has a value of 30.

When I run the program the graph displays these values correctly.

I have also got a button, Button1 which when pressed will plot the chart again, (so if I manually change the values in the TextBoxes after the form has loaded), it will display the new values via the bars.

The problem I have is that if if once the initial values have been plotted when the form loads, i.e. 10, 20 & 30, the Y axis of the chart has a maximum value of 35, so that all the initial values for the bars are shown. But if I change the values to say 15, 30, 80. and then press Button1 to update that bars to thier new values, the bars change but the one that show's 80 can not been seen fully as it goes off the chart, as the Y axis still only shows a maximum value of 35!

Does anyone know how to get the chart to resize to be able to display all the bar values within the chart each time the values are changed and the Button1 is pressed, whether it be reducing the graph for smaller values or enlarging the chart for higher values?

I am not 100% sure I am going about it in the correct way as I have not got any experience in using charts and am having to stuble about the net trying to find basic example code of how to setup and use a chart

My code so far is:

Imports System.Windows.Forms.DataVisualization.Charting
Public Class Form1
Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load

VSTO - Excel Chart, Subtitle For Chart - Access Chart Text Box From Code?

Oct 14, 2011

I have a chart in Excel that I'd like to use a subtitle on. There is no SubTitle Property on the chart object, so I looked in the Excel User interface and found that you can only create a sub-title by using a text box. The text box looks like its associated with the chart, not the worksheet, so how would I access that text box from code?

How do I dynamically add or remove a chart series on a WinForm.  To date all my MS Charting experience has been dealing with ASP.Net charts with static sql select statment to a SQL Database.  In the new project that I have been assigned I have different cities with different amounts of points that they want monitored.  One city might have 3 an another might have 5 or 7 so I can't hard code the amount of series that I need.  It needs to be set up so the amount of series can be flexible depending on the city selected and then display those points on the chart.

Resize Parent Control From Child's Resize Event?

Jan 10, 2012

I'm starting work updating an UI for one of my company's applications and I'm running into a sticky issue. The parent control contains several panels, each of which can be turned on or off depending on user input.

The final panel in the user control contains another user control which gets resizes according to a toggle switch. Essentially, it "opens" up more information.

While the child control (ChildControl) is docked to Fill inside the parent control (ParentControl), when I add height to ChildControl I can't get ParentControl's height to get updated as well. Currently I'm handling the ChildControl.Layout event in ParentControl but I can't seem to reach that code. To resize ChildControl, I'm calling Me.Height += 200 in ChildControl.vb.

RDLC Chart - Produce A Chart Showing The Month Along The Y-axis And The Value Up The X-axis

Jan 8, 2009

I have the smallest dataset in the world that simply consists of a month (text) and and amount. I want to produce a chart showing the month along the y-axis and the value up the x-axis. How do I do it? I have dragged the chart control onto the report page and populated the dataset. The chart shows but nothing like what I would expect. Just to make it simple I populated the dataset with an amount equivalent to the month number so it should show as 1 in January, 2 in Feb etc...However no matter where I drag the dataset's column names I don't get what I want. Where am I going wrong?

I use this simple loop to populate the dataset:


For i As Integer = 1 To 12
dsSales.Tables("Sales").Rows.Add(MonthName(i), i)


I get this as a result:

.net - Have Each DataGridView Scale Appropriately?

Jun 18, 2009

In 3.5 SP1 I have a Windows Form with three DataGridView controls. One DGV takes up the whole bottom half of the form. The other two share the top half and are side-by-side.

I'd like to have each DataGridView scale appropriately. More specifically I'd like to have column widths and row heights adjust to the size of the form. Then I'd like the cell font to auto-fill based on a change in the cell size.

I've used the Dock property for the controls to scale to the size of the form. How can I get the rows and fonts to utilize the increased form size?

i would put this here maybe someone would be in the know.Waiting to here back from the company also.At work we have a truck scale and it has a control that reads the weight.Model of the control is Toledo Scales Model 8530. The control has a serial cable to communicate with.I am trying to figure out what command to send to it to get the weight back.I have connected to it with a serial monitor and i dont seem to be getting any information back so thought maybe I had to send something to it.Right now we have a 3rd party dos program that is communicating with it that i dont have the source to.

I dont know if i could just bypass the control and connect to that serial cable or not,,, i would need to find an adapter if so.Ok probably shot in dark but thought what the heck this is a smart group

So, I have the size of the "Scene" and an array of the objects that are visible on the scene. Every object have an size and location mapped to the scene.I also have a preview window that have an dynamic size. How do I create a preview that scales down to the preview window? To make it easy, I loop through the scene objects in the scene and create a picturebox on the preview-form for each object, that uses the preview-forms size to do the scaling.

Zedgraph, How To Convert XAxis.Scale.Min To A Date

But I found that I only get axis value, e.g. 4508.345, but NOT the date that I want. Actually on figure, it shows date correctly. My question is how to get the minimum and maximum date on figure?

ComboBox - Set Labels And Scale Multiplication Factors For XY Grid

Jun 28, 2010

I have some combo boxes that basically set labels and scale multiplication factors for an XY grid. The combo boxes themselves work as they should. Two adjust scale levels of the XY grid (label and multiplication factors) the other changes the Y axis units (Imperial/Metric). The issue comes when I try to replot old data... I have the data in the array and have confirmed it is accurate...but...

When I apply the appropriate value to combobox.selectedindex and then call the Sub that actually makes the scale changes, the selected index reverts to -1. Small Example.... (note consider all variables as public and all routines in a single class - ignore spelling - this is a quick subset recreation not a copy).

Private Sub ReloadGraph()
combobox1.selectedindex = LengthScale(GraphNumber)
Call LengthLabels()
PlotUnits = Units(GraphNumber)
Call UnitsSet()
[Code] .....

OK - so I did add some code..... I did not actually run this code, but this is essentially a snapshot of what fails....when I step through line by line, the selectedindex changes to -1 as soon as I step to the second line of the second 2 Subs BEFORE it processes the second line (i.e. always after I step off Private Sub xxx() ). Again, both UnitSet and LengthLabels work OK separately when called, it is ONLY when I set the selectedindex from a variable (and again, it DOES set OK) and then call these routines that the selectedindex goes to -1. I have read a bunch of stuff relating to selectedindex and selectedvalue resetting IF one or the other is blank, but I have tried setting both in testing and this fails too!!
