Wizard Structure: The Presentation Page Group

  • 4 minutes to read

This topic describes the Chart Wizard's Presentation page options.

Chart

This page allows you to specify the chart's background color and fill style (or a background image), and border options (visibility, color and thickness).

ChartWizardPage

Diagram

The Diagram page allows you to access the diagram options.

DiagramWizardPage

The diagram's main function is to determine the chart type, being stiffly tied with the view types of a chart's series. Multiple diagram types exist, that determine the compatibility of series view types. And, for this reason, each diagram type provides its own list of specific settings and chart elements (such as axes, secondary axes, or panes). For more information on this, refer to Diagram.

So, in this page, you can add or remove these elements. The created secondary axes and panes can be associated with series later, in the Series Views page.

Panes

This page provides options for adjusting panes, if they are supported by the chart's diagram type. Here, for a default or additional pane, you can specify its size (relative to other panes, or absolute), appearance (background color, fill style, or background image), border color, and shadow.

PanesWizardPage

Note that to select a pane, you can click it directly in the chart preview.

Axes

This page allows you to access both primary and secondary axis options. You can distribute axes among different panes, and set their alignment (Near, Far, or Zero), axis range, and appearance.

AxesWizardPage

Axes also have various chart elements, such as axis title, grid lines and tickmarks, and axis labels. Their options are available in the corresponding tabs on this page.

Axes also have additional chart elements: strips, constant lines, and scale breaks. Refer to the corresponding help topics for more information on their use and customization capabilities.

Note that to select an axis, you can click it directly in the chart preview.

Series Views

The Series Views page allows you to access view-type-specific options of series. Refer to the following help topic for details: Series Views.

SeriesViewsWizardPage

NOTE

In addition to the capability to customize view type options, you can enable and adjust special analytical tools that are available for some view types, such as Fibonacci Indicators, Trend Lines, and Regression Lines.

Note that to select a series, you can click it directly in the chart preview.

Point Labels

This page provides means to customize the appearance of series labels, which accompany series points. Here, you can apply an overlap resolving algorithm which helps to organize lengthy labels, adjust labels text settings (font, text color, and antialiasing), labels position and visibility, and so on.

PointLabelsWizardPage

Note that to select labels of a series, you can click this series' label directly in the chart preview.

Chart Titles

This page allows you to accompany your chart with an unlimited number of textual titles (with word-wrap and basic HTML support). Each title's position and appearance is also adjustable here. For more information, refer to Chart Titles.

ChartTitlesWizardPage

Note that to select a chart title, you can click it directly in the chart preview.

Legend

The Legend page allows you to specify the chart's legend options: its visibility, position, item direction, appearance, and text settings.

LegendWizardPage

NOTE

To adjust the content to be displayed by a legend item (e.g., series point arguments, values, or both, or series names), switch back to the Legend Point Options tab of the Series page.

Annotations

The last page allows you to create text and image annotations anchored to the chart, panes, and series points.

AnnotationsWizardPage

You can adjust position, layout, appearance, and other settings for chart, panes, and series points.
