Line chart not showing lines
FM 12. I created a line chart in layout mode. The data points are shown, but the lines connecting the data points are not shown. How do you show the lines?
What chart options did you select? I can't find a way for the lines to not be visible.
I don't see any options that should affect the lines. I'm using: show legend, show data points, use actual data, display current found set, layout is individual record data.
One other thing. The chart style is Poly-line. However, if I choose Curve fitting, the curved line appears!!!! If I switch back to Poly-line, the lines do not appear!!!
Poly Line works for me.
I finally found what the problem was. I was using an if statement for one of the series to select data to show on the chart. Although the data points were on the chart, the lines were not. Does this mean the current state of the database can only contain the records to be shown on the chart?
And what "IF statement" is that?
Do you mean that you had many records and the if statement returned an empty (null) result for all but three of the records and thus you saw points and not a line?
And your data source options specified the current found set?
If so, then yes, you would need to perform a find to reduce your found set to just the records where the IF function returns a numeric value.
