Change to the 'right-click' menu

Post by arwelbath » Tue Feb 17, 2009 4:01 pm

I want to modify the menu that appears when I right click on a chart. Specifically, I want to keep the 'Save As', 'Print' and zooming options, but I want to remove the first 'properties' option.

Could someone suggest how I could do this?

Check the constructor for org.jfree.chart.ChartPanel. Specifically, pass false for the value of this parameter

Code: Select all

boolean properties,

Elaborating of what skunk said, there are two constructors for a ChartPanel to control what shows in the right click menu.

Code: Select all

ChartPanel(JFreeChart chart, boolean properties, boolean save, boolean print, boolean zoom, boolean tooltips)


ChartPanel(JFreeChart chart, int width, int height, int minimumDrawWidth, int minimumDrawHeight, int maximumDrawWidth, int maximumDrawHeight, boolean useBuffer, boolean properties, boolean save, boolean print, boolean zoom, boolean tooltips)
You can also replace the right click menu entirely with your own.

Code: Select all

ChartPanel.setPopupMenu(JPopupMenu popup)

you can add menuitem to the list at any index you like. to remove properties option pass false in chartpanel constructor argurments and the rest to true.
