AxisOptions

AxisOptions ( axisIndex ;​ axisLocation ;​ axisLayout )

Argument Type Range Default Note
axisIndex int 0..10000 all
axisLocation int 0..2 back
axisLayout int 0..3 0 Requires xmCHART 4.0.6 or higher
Examples

AxisOptions(all;​front)

AxisOptions(y;​;​1) /* Move y-axis to the right side of the plot area. */

AxisOptions(y;​;​3) /* Mirror y-axis. */

Description

By using the 2nd argument axisLocation, axes can either be arranged behind the chart (axisLocation = back) or in front of it (axisLocation = front). The latter arrangement proves useful, e.g. for polar and radar charts. As an option, axes can be completely suppressed by axisLocation = none.
