Version 1.2.1 Released

Post by BvG » Mon May 07, 2012 9:13 pm

Hi everyone

Version 1.2.1 is a quick fix for some licensing troubles that emerged for new buyers. There are no other bug fixes or feature changes, so there's no need for existing customers to upgrade.

download chartsengine 1.2.1.zip

All information below this line pertains to version 1.2, but most of it is still valid for 1.2.1, so if you're new to ChartsEngine, make sure to read it.
I know I took my sweet time with this one, but it's finally here:

download chartsengine 1.2.zip

Note that previously chartsengine would always set the cursor to watch, whenever you'd issue "chartsRefresh". This has been removed, because people wanted to have more control over the cursor themselves. To get the old behaviour, you'd need to do something like this (untested, but you get the idea):

Code: Select all

lock cursor
set the cursor to watch
send chartsRefresh to group "example"
unlock cursor


Excerpt from the Release notes:


1.2
It is now possible to use "Scatter" and "BarsGroupedHorizontal" style charts (See example stack and documentation).

Bugs fixed: 6,14,16,20,30,37,38,39
  • Curser does not anymore get changed when chartsrefresh is called (if you want a cursor change, do it yourself)
  • Charts["pointsStyle"] can now be a list (only for scatter graph), many types added ("hollow" && existing_styles, "cross", "x")
  • LC 5.5 compatibility was ensured (reserved word "padding")
  • Line graphs where somehow drawn double
  • MaxY & MinY now works with barsgrouped (barsstacked still a problem)
  • Problem with very large datasets being scewed for line graphs was fixed
  • Values for bar style charts where wrongly placed
  • removed the ability to use gridX to show or hide x values description for bar style graphs (never worked properly)

Hi Stephen,
After clicking on the link remove the "s" from https://
There was a change that RunRev did and not all the developers have updated their sites.

I am really sorry. Sadly, there is nothing I can do to fix this, because the Store pseudo-admin interface doesn't allow me to enter https or link to my server properly (It's not on my part to fix). and RunRev hasn't done anything for more then 1 year about this. Note that all the images are also broken, which in turn they neglected to fix for more then 5 years.

If you think that is a sorry state of quality and customer support, feel free to let them know at support@runrev.com Be warned tho, as I and others did try this repeatedly without result, I fear it won't help.

Meanwhile, the only way to work around is to edit the link url to http, deleting the 's' from https.


Sorry again

This is broken for more then 6 months now, and RR is always working on things that then never happen, like the community platform that is supposedly is going to happen since more then 10 years now. Meanwhile the store is broken.
