RE: Pin Needle

Post by Bryan.Scott » Wed Jun 09, 2004 5:02 am

In the compass plot as it stands this is not achievable.

There would be two ways of achieve
a) Simply write a new needle
b) Write a new needle which scales and translates an existing needle.

I am just doing a CVS checkout at the moment, and I will see if I can get some code posted shortly

NB. What are you try to do this for?

Thank you ,Bryan!
I'm just trying to put the root of the pin needle in the centre of the
compass and make it go round and round according to it's root.
Your code works well.
I live in Beijing!Welcome to Beijing :D

Is it possible to have two needles in the meter grpah. If yes, how can i do it.

thanx in advance

two needles in compass

Post by cassidyh » Tue Jul 19, 2005 12:39 pm

ALl you have to do is declare a new dataset, and than call the plot.

dataset1 = new DefaultValueDataset(new Double(45.0));
dataset2 = new DefaultValueDataset(new Double(60.0));
plot = new CompassPlot();
plot.addData(dataset1) ;
plot.addData(dataset2);

What I don't know is how to change the needle to the middlepoint needle, and how to manipulate the colors of the needle.
