Can somebody help me with this.

I am trying to send a legend scroll on the graph but I am getting an exception error and the graph doesnt dislpay at all when I try to add the legend scroll.

This is the code below as to how I add the legend scroll.

setLegendAutomatic(true);
setLegendScroll(2);
setLegendSeriesCount(6);
setLegendSeriesStart(0);
setLegendOrient(2);
setLegendRect(new Rectangle(-15340,-2478,5948,17550));

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

What's the error?

What version are you running?

I'm not sure what scrolling legends would do, but I added your lines of code to an existing graph and got not errors. By the way, the code did not make any change to the graph.

Francis,

I am not getting any error. The graph shows fine, however, I dont get the legend scroll to display on the graph.

The problem I am having is, I am having a lot of legends and I am not able to display all of them at once. So I wanted to use a legend scroll to display sum and scroll to display others.

Thanks for your help.

Oh, and I am running 7.1.3.

Are you sure that 7.1.3 supports scrolling legends?

I don't have WebFOCUS 7 so I can't verify that.

Perhaps the Perspective Java thingy supports scrolling legends, but WebFOCUS does not.

The dreaded phrase "Open a case with tech support" comes to mind!

It's not clear what you are trying to do as far as the graph output but I was under the impression that scrolling legends would only work using the Applet approach.

EJL,

Run the code below:

****************************************

GRAPH FILE CAR
PRINT
RCOST AS ''
ACROSS MODEL AS 'MODEL'
BY COUNTRY
ON GRAPH SET LOOKGRAPH VLINE
ON GRAPH SET GRAPHEDIT SERVER
ON GRAPH SET BARNUMB OFF
ON GRAPH SET 3D OFF
ON GRAPH SET VZERO ON
ON GRAPH SET GRID OFF
ON GRAPH SET VAXIS 330
ON GRAPH SET HAXIS 560
ON GRAPH SET GRMERGE ON
ON GRAPH PCHOLD AS OUTFILE FORMAT HTML
ON GRAPH SET GRAPHSTYLE *
setSeriesType(0,0);
setSeriesType(1,0);
setMarkerDisplay(true);
setUseSeriesShapes(true);
setConnectLineMarkers(true);
setConnectScatterMarkers(true);
setO1LabelDisplay(true);
setO1AxisSide(0);
setO1MajorGridDisplay(true);
setO1MajorGridStyle(0);
setO1MinorGridDisplay(false);
setAxisAssignment(0,0);

setTextFormatPreset(getY1Label(),-1);
setTextFormatPattern(getY1Label(),"#.##");
setLegendDisplay(true);
setTextJustHoriz(getTitle(),1);
setFontSizeAbsolute(getTitle(),true);
setFontSize(getTitle(),11);
setTextJustHoriz(getSubtitle(),1);
setFontSizeAbsolute(getSubtitle(),true);
setFontSize(getSubtitle(),10);
setFontSizeAbsolute(getFootnote(),true);
setFontSize(getFootnote(),9);
setFontStyle(getFootnote(),0);
setLegendTextAutofit(true);
-*
-*setLegendMarkerSizeMax(500);
-*setLegendMarkersPerRow(7);
-*
setFontSizeAbsolute(getY1Title(),true);
setFontName(getY1Label(),"Dialog");
setFontSizeAbsolute(getY1Label(),true);
setFontSizeAbsolute(getO1Title(),true);
setTextJustHoriz(getO1Label(),1);
setY1TitleString("CAR");
setX1TitleString("MODEL");
setO1LabelAutofit(true);
setTextRotation(getO1Label(),0);
ENDSTYLE
END
-RUN
-EXIT


*********************************************

Now my program has a lot of legends, something like 24 and I cant show all the legends down at the bottom of the graph(ENGLAND, FRANCE..). So I wanted to add a legend scroll to show, let say, 6 legends and the user could scroll to view the rest.

Does this make sense now?

But isn't the result of this going to be a static image displayed in a browser? What I think you need to do to get a dynamic graph is to use client side processing.

I've only played around with the WF graph stuff and found it not very clear on many things so maybe my understanding of what's going on isn't complete.

This is a bug in the new graph engine and you need to open a case with support.

switch back to the old engine and it works

SET GRAPHENGINE=OLD

Thanks JG!
That did take care of the scroll to appear on the graph. However, I am not able to scroll ( as EJL pointed out ).

Any idea on how I could get the scroller to work, or any documentation that would help me figure that out?

Thanks again all for your ideas.

All I added to your code was

SET GRAPHENGINE=OLD

and

setLegendDisplay(true);
setLegendAutomatic(true);
setLegendScroll(2);
setLegendSeriesCount(2);
setLegendSeriesStart(0);
setLegendOrient(0);
setLegendRect(new Rectangle(-15340,-2478,5948,17550));
setFillColor(getLegendScrollerThumb(),new Color(0,255,0));

It's import that you use FORMAT HTML otherwise its a static image.

Also its a drag activated scroller not a point and click one.

Picking up a 3 1/2 year old post and asking someone to send you code is very very lazy.

If you bother to read the post then all you need to do is take the original code make the amendments as posted
you have the answer.

The forum is to help where help is genuinely needed.
Not to do the work for someone who can't be bothered
