ChartDirector 6.2 (.NET Edition)

Scattered Data Surface Chart




This example demonstrates using scattered data for the surface chart. It also demonstrates hiding the plot region walls and changing their thickness and colors.

In previous surface chart examples, the data are gridded, which means the (x, y) coordinates of the data points lie on a rectangular grid. ChartDirector also supports scattered data points, which means the data points can be at arbitrary positions. ChartDirector automatically detects if the data passed to the surface chart using SurfaceChart.setData are gridded or scattered.

In this example, 2 of the 3 plot region walls are hidden using ThreeDChart.setWallVisibility. For the visible wall, its color is set to black using ThreeDChart.setWallColor, its thickness is set to 0 using ThreeDChart.setWallThickness, and its major and minor grid lines are set to white and grey using ThreeDChart.setWallGrid.
