[CASE-OPENED] location of graph marker images
Hi All

We would like to use a custom marker on a graph. I am referring to the markers specified by api call


Choices are "diamond", "hourglass" etc

I have searched the /ibi/ folder but I do not see any obvious answer. Maybe they come from one image that has coordinates for the specific marker?

Does anyone know how to locate the physical location of the markers? We are asking because we want to use a custom marker and we are thinking of replacing a png or gif or whatever it is with a custom image.

I don't think they are images, I expect that they are polygons.

There's probably a list of polygon definitions somewhere defining the (relative) positions of each next polygon coordinate, most likely somewhere in the Perspective for Java internals that the graphs are based on.

Hi Wesp

I was worried that might be the case. I opened a case with IBI but I do not have an answer yet.
