ChartDirector 6.0 (C++ Edition)
Formats Available for This Documentation
This documentation is available in both CHM and HTML formats. CHM is the recommended format on Windows because of the built-in search facilities and better indexing support in CHM viewers, while HTML format can be read on any operating system. Both formats may be downloaded from http://www.advsofteng.com/download.html
Due to security reasons, Microsoft Windows may only view CHM files properly if they are located on the local hard disk. CHM files located on network drives may not work properly. Please ensure the CHM file is copied to your local hard disk for reading.
Also, if the CHM file is downloaded from the Internet or copied from a network drive (as opposed to installed by an installer), Microsoft Windows may block the CHM file. You may need to "unblock" the CHM to read it. The steps are:
- Right-click the CHM file, and then click Properties.
- Click Unblock, then click OK.

- Layer Architecture : Enables new chart styles to be composed easily using chart layers as building blocks. For example, a box-whisker layer can used to add error bands to a bar chart. A scatter layer can be used to add symbols to specific points of a line chart. The possibilities are endless.
- Interactive : Chart objects, such as bars in bar charts, slices in pie charts, legends and labels, etc, can have customizable tooltips and support mouse events. Programmable track cursors can dynamically update legend entries to show the data at the mouse cursor position as the mouse slides across the chart, with axis labels displaying the position of the mouse cursor. Zooming and scrolling by using mouse click and drag, mouse wheel, or the viewport control user interface.
