charts[XConvertTo] command problem

Post by drOrganized » Tue Apr 20, 2010 2:31 am

If anyone can help, I can't seem to get from seconds to short date with this command:

set the charts["dataIncludesX"] of tChart to true
set the charts["XConvertsTo"] of tChart to the short date

Instead, I just get the seconds depicted along the x axis? See attachment

Also the text of the y Axis is cut off.

What could I have missed?

Thanks,

Hi,

syntax should be:

set the charts["XConvertsTo"] of tChart to "short date"

otherwise rev will evalute to the current short date.

Hope that helps,

Malte
