Difficulty with creating special chart.

Post by BennieC » Thu Apr 02, 2020 7:44 am

Hi I am quite a newbie with charting end definitely with TeeChart. I need to create a chart as per the included image but have no idea how to approach it. I have investigated XY plots as well as polar plots but am not able to create this.

Hello,

Here a simple example using ColorLineTools for the green lines and manually drawing the circles at OnBeforeDrawSeries event:

Code: Select all

uses Series, VCLTee.TeeTools;

procedure TForm1.Chart1BeforeDrawSeries(Sender: TObject);
const radius: array of Double=[3.9, 7.5, 11, 14.5];
var i, x, y, w, h: Integer;
begin
  for i:=0 to High(radius) do
  begin
    with Chart1.Canvas do
    begin
      Brush.Clear;
      Pen.Color:=clBlack;
      Pen.Width:=1;
      Pen.Style:=psDot;
      with Chart1.Axes do
        Ellipse(Bottom.CalcPosValue(radius[i]), Left.CalcPosValue(radius[i]),
                Bottom.CalcPosValue(-radius[i]), Left.CalcPosValue(-radius[i]));
    end;
  end;
end;

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
  Chart1.View3D:=False;
  Chart1.Legend.Hide;
  Chart1.Axes.Left.SetMinMax(-16,16);
  Chart1.Axes.Bottom.SetMinMax(-16,16);

  with TColorLineTool(Chart1.Tools.Add(TColorLineTool)) do
  begin
    Axis:=Chart1.Axes.Left;
    Pen.Color:=clGreen;
    Pen.Width:=2;
    Value:=0;
  end;

  with TColorLineTool(Chart1.Tools.Add(TColorLineTool)) do
  begin
    Axis:=Chart1.Axes.Bottom;
    Pen.Color:=clGreen;
    Pen.Width:=2;
    Value:=0;
  end;

  with TPointSeries(Chart1.AddSeries(TPointSeries)) do
  begin
    Pointer.Size:=2;
    Pointer.Style:=psCircle;
    AddXY(-7.5,-7);
    AddXY(14.5, 14.5);
  end;
end;
