    Hi monk-e-boy

    First of all, congrats on a great product. I particularly like the way you can now embed the chart data into a javascript variable when building the page. I do have a couple of issues though!

    My first query is about the y axis. I need to plot charts where the value ranges between 0 and 1 and I can't find a way to indicate any values inbetween (eg 0.25, 0.50, 0.75) on the y axis. Is there a way? Is is something coming in a future release? You can do it fairly easily in version 1.9x.

    My second query is regarding the scatter chart. I want to display a value in the tooltip such as a url or text string specific to each point but something that isn't the x or the y value. Is this something that's going to be available soon?

    Thanks for your time.

    Martin

     
    • I don't know for sure the answer to your question, but I wasted a great deal of time by assuming from reading the documentation and the examples (all of which come from version 1 I presume) that, in respect of the Y-axis, the "steps" property referred to the number of steps. Imagine my surprise when, in a moment of inspiration/ desperation, I got my graph working by re-interpreting "steps" to mean the unit size of each step. In my situation, I'm dealing with Y-axis values of the order of multiple millions. For example, if my "min" = 0, "max" = 4000000 and I wanted, say, 20 actual steps, I had to specify 200000 as the Y-axis "step" property. So, in your situation, try ".25" as the value of your "step" property.

      Thanks for the suggestion, unfortunately it doesn't quite work. Steps are displayed at the appropriate intervals but there are no digits displayed next to them.
