Overview
The animation of the Chart control allows you to propose a dynamic display in your applications.
For example, during the first display of a Column chart, each bar seems to fly out from the X-axis. The animation is also performed when a value is modified.
The animation of the Chart control is defined in the editor, in the "Details" tab of the control description window.
Implementation

Animating a Chart control

To animate a Chart control:
  1. Open the Chart control description window.
  2. In the "Details" tab:
    • WINDEV In "Animations of 2D charts", check "Enable animations".
  3. Validate the control description window.
Remarks:
  • This option is available for the following types of charts:
    • WINDEV Area, Bubble, Line, Donut, Column, MinMax, Radar, Pie, Waterfall.
  • The animation performed on the Chart controls depends on the type of chart displayed. This animation cannot be configured.
  • By default, the animation of a Chart control lasts 30 milliseconds.
  • If a Chart control is animated, the animation will also be performed when the chart is drawn further to a change of value (grDraw).
  • WINDEV The Chart controls created from version 19 are animated by default.

Modifying or deleting the animation through programming

The AnimationDuration property allows you to:
  • Find out and modify the duration of the animation in a Chart control.
    // Increase timeout
    CHART_MyChart.AnimationDuration = 2000
  • Cancel the animation of a Chart control. To do so, change the duration of the animation and give it a null value.
    // Temporarily stops the animation
    CHART_MyChart.AnimationDuration = 0
