EDIT: Disregard this post. I was able to find a workaround to my problem in RadChart.
I am attempting to make a Cartesian bar graph with range bars.
I would like the graph to take beginning dates, end dates, and a name from a file and plot the name in a categorical X axis while plotting the duration of the file in the Y axis.
As is I am using range bars for this and converting the dates to doubles and plotting those against the file name. Is there any way that I can skip the conversion step and simply plot each bar with the high and low values being DateTimes?
If not, is there any way I can access the tickpoint values and change what they are?
I built the same chart using a RadChart and was able to achieve the desired look, but could not zoom effectively (as the chart would crash for some reason). Upon reading several threads on zooming help, it seems that there was a bug in RadChart and all moderators suggested RadChartView instead. I am trying to implement this, but cannot figure out how to either plot bars with DateTime high/low values or how to access individual tick labels so that I can change them.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
The attached pictures are views of what the RadChart (the one that can't zoom, but has the right axis labels, not to mention a legend and better color scheme) and of what the RadChartView (the one which can zoom, but I cannot figure out a way to rename the axis/plot the bars as DateTimes in) look like.
