Integer/Floating Point Ranges and Precision

I looked in the user guide, dictionary, and searched the forums but I cannot find a discussion of number ranges or digits of precision. I understand that the language is typeless, but you would expect at least some discussion on this topic. I tried some testing on integers and was surprised to find ...

Re: Find the fill/blend modes of chart grid difficult

Malte, The code below is very close to what I was trying to achieve with the exception of missing X grid lines. I assume when I set the YFills without XFills the X grid lines were not drawn at all or were somehow overlayed by the YFill. Are drawing of grid lines intended to be independent of the gri...

Re: Find the fill/blend modes of chart grid difficult

Find the fill/blend modes of chart grid difficult

I would like to set the background of the chart to one color (easy enough) and be able to set either the YFill to alternate colors or XFill to alternate colors.

Example Scripts Errors/Issues

I have been exploring the ChartEngine Examples script and have found a few issues: 1. In the script for button "charts!" of card "barsGrouped chart" in line 26. I believe that "colors" should be "chartcolors". 2. On the "Working with the grid" card. there are two fields with incorrect text. The firs...
