Axis Editor

This editor is used to customize the properties of the axes of the active graph.

Visible

Check this check box to allow showing all axes of the active graph. The state of this check box is ANDed with the state of the Visible check box on the General tab-page to determine the visibility of the selected axis.

Axes

Select in this list box the axis whose properties need to be customized.

General

Visible

Check or uncheck this check box to show or hide the selected axis. The state of this check box is ANDed with the state of the Visible check box to determine visibility of the selected axis.

Inverted

Check this check box to invert the selected axis. This check box is not visible if the selected axis is a Radial or an Angular axis.

Logarithmic

Check this check box to use logarithmic scale for the selected axis. This check box is not visible if the selected axis is a Radial or an Angular axis, or if the axis spans into non-positive region.

Natural Base

Check this check box to use the natural base, provided the logarithmic scale is used for the selected axis. This check box is not visible if the selected axis is a Radial or an Angular axis.

Log Base

The value in this text box specifies the base of the selected axis, provided the logarithmic scale is used for the selected axis but the natural base is not used. This check box is not visible if the selected axis is a Radial or an Angular axis.

Axis Pen

Click this button to open the Pen Editor with which the pen used to draw the selected axis can be customized. This check box is not visible if the selected axis is an Angular axis.

Scales

Automatic

Check this check box to use automatic scale for the selected axis. This check box is not visible if the selected axis is an Angular axis.

Desired Increment

The value in this text box specifies the desired increment for the axis labels of the selected axis. A value of zero means automatic increment.

Maximum Value

The value in this text box specifies the maximum value to use for the axis labels of the selected axis. This text box is not visible if the selected axis is an Angular axis.

Minimum

The value in this text box specifies the minimum value to use for the axis labels of the selected axis. This check box is not visible if the selected axis is an Angular axis.

Title

General

Visible

Check or uncheck this check box to show or hide the title of the selected axis.

Margin

The value in this spin box specifies the margins in pixels of the axis title.

Text

This tab-page contains the Rich Text Editor with which the title of the selected axis can be customized.

Ticks

Major Grid

Click this button to open the Pen Editor with which the pen used to draw the major grid lines can be customized.

Centered

Check this check box to draw the major grid lines at the middle points between adjacent axis labels. This check box is not visible if the selected axis is a Radial or an Angular axis.

Draw every

A value of N in this spin box means that a major grid line is drawn for every N successive axis labels. This check box is not visible if the selected axis is a Radial or an Angular axis.

Major Ticks

Click this button to open the Pen Editor with which the pen used to draw the major ticks can be customized. The value in the Length spin box to the right of this button specifies the length of the major ticks. This check box and the Length spin box are not visible if the selected axis is an Angular axis.

Inner Ticks

Click this button to open the Pen Editor with which the pen used to draw the inner ticks can be customized. The value in the Length spin box to the right of this button specifies the length of the inner ticks. This check box and the Length spin box are not visible if the selected axis is an Angular axis.

Minor Ticks

Click this button to open the Pen Editor with which the pen used to draw the minor ticks can be customized. The value in the Length spin box to the right of this button specifies the length of the minor ticks. This check box and the Length spin box are not visible if the selected axis is an Angular axis.

Minor Grid

Click this button to open the Pen Editor with which the pen used to draw the minor grid can be customized. This check box is not visible if the selected axis is the Angular or the Radial axis.

Count

The value in this spin box specifies the number of minor ticks / minor grid lines between two adjacent major grid lines. This check box is not visible if the selected axis is an Angular axis.

Labels

Style

Visible

Check or uncheck this check box to show or hide axis labels of the selected axis.

Round first

Check this check box to make the axis labels drawn at rounded-number positions. For example, instead of being drawn at positions 1.3, 2.3, 3.3, ..., the axis labels are drawn at positions 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, ... This check box is not visible if the selected axis is an Angular axis.

Label on axis

Check or uncheck this check box to draw or not to draw the axis label if it happens to locate at a position on another axis. This check box is not visible if the selected axis is an Angular axis.

Alternate

Check this check box to make DataScene draw two sets of axis labels. The labels in one set are at the middle points of two adjacent labels in the other set. This check box is not visible if the selected axis is an Angular axis.

Margin

The value in this spin box specifies the margin of the axis labels. This check box is not visible if the selected axis is an Angular axis.

Angle

The value in this spin box specifies the angle at which the axis labels are drawn. This check box is not visible if the selected axis is an Angular axis.

Min. Sep. %

DataScene automatically tries to avoid overlapping of adjacent axis labels. The value in this spin box specifies the minimum separation between adjacent labels in terms of the length of the axis labels. This check box is not visible if the selected axis is an Angular axis.

Inside

This check box is visible only if the selected axis is an Angular axis. Check it to draw the axis labels inside the bounding ellipse of the graph.

Rotated

This check box is visible only if the selected axis is an Angular axis. Check it to draw the axis labels at the polar angles of the labels.

Style

This group box is not visible if the selected axis is an Angular axis.

Auto

Check this radio button to let DataScene automatically determine the display style for the axis labels.

Value

Check this radio button to draw numeric axis labels. The values usually come from the data of the associated series. For example, if the graph contains a Line series, the values in the Position component of the series is used for the horizontal axis while the values in the Value component of the series is used for the vertical axis.

Text

Check this radio button to draw axis labels using the texts contained in the LabelMember series component of the series. 

Mark

Check this radio button to draw axis labels using the texts of the series Marks that can be customized with the Mark Editor

None

Check this radio button to hide the axis labels. 

Format

Exponential

Checking this check box to use "10" rather than "E" in scientific notation to represent the base and to use superscripts for the exponents. This check box is enabled only if the scientific notation is used for the axis labels.

Values Format

The value in this combo-box is a Value Format Code that determines the numeric format used for the axis labels. In additional to the pre-defined codes, the user may type in this combo-box a user-defined value format code.

Default Alignment

If the selected axis is not a horizontal axis and the rotation angle of the axis labels is either 0 or 180, check this check box to use the default alignment for the axis labels.

Text

This tab-page contains the Text Editor with which the textual properties of the axis labels can be customized.

Position

This tab-page is not visible if the selected axis is an Angular or a Radial axis.

Position

The value in this spin box specifies the position of the selected axis in the graph cube.

Start

The value in this spin box specifies the start position of the selected axis in the graph cube.

End

The value in this spin box specifies the end position of the selected axis in the graph cube.

Units

The value in this spin specifies the unit used with the above three values.

Z %

The value in this spin box specifies the depth position of the selected axis in the graph cube in a percentage of the total depth.

OK

Click this button to accept the settings and close this editor.
