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.

    • WEBDEV - Server codePHP Area, Line, Bar, Stacked Bar, Pie, Donut, Semi-circular.
  • 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).

Modifying or deleting the animation by programming

..AnimationDuration is used to:
  • Find out and modify the duration of the animation in a Chart control.
    // Increase timeout
    CHART_MyChart..AnimationDuration = 2000
  • Canceling 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
