Subject: Re: [BlueDragon] cfgraph is rounding my values
Andrew,

  For the heck of it, I tried a bunch of the attribures to <cfgraph>,
and I gotta tell you, most of them didn't work! Here's a quick
run-down:

lineColor: Didn't work. CF5 default is blue, yours is red.
lineWidth: Didn't work.
fill: Didn't Work.
graphHeight: Worked better than CF5!
graphWidth: Worked better than CF5!
backgroundColor: It did something, but definitly didn't behave like CF5.
borderColor: Didn't work.
borderWidth: Didn't work.
depth: Didn't work (ie, you can't do 3d graphs).
gridLines: Didn't work (we use the default ones, and we'll like it
(ie, can't even turn them off))

Now, I've got to say that there are some things that give me great
hope. First, the dots on the line at the data points (which I
personally need to turn off, and aren't there in CF5), and the funky
backgroundColor fade. These look an aweful lot like you've implemented
jFreeChart (http://www.jfree.org/jfreechart/). If that's the case you
could extend charting ability tremendously, and have something that
would totally kill <cfgraph>. You guys have the start of something
really great here, and it would be a terrible shame if you wsted the
opportunity.

Here is my example code:

<cfgraph type="bar" fileformat="jpg"                     
graphheight="400" graphwidth="400">
  <cfgraphdata value="2" item="2"                        
color="green">
  <cfgraphdata value="2.5" item="2.5"                    
color="blue">
  <cfgraphdata value="2.7" item="2.7"                    
color="black">
  <cfgraphdata value="3" item="3"                        
color="purple">
</cfgraph>

<cfgraph type="line" fill="yes"                          
linecolor="green" bordercolor="purple"
borderwidth="10" fileformat="jpg"                           
graphheight="400" graphwidth="400"
gridlines="100">
  <cfgraphdata value="2" item="2">
  <cfgraphdata value="2.5" item="2.5">
  <cfgraphdata value="2.7" item="2.7">
  <cfgraphdata value="3" item="3">
</cfgraph>

<cfgraph type="line" linecolor="green"                   
linewidth="10"
backgroundcolor="red" borderwidth="0" depth="5"   
fileformat="jpg"
graphheight="400" graphwidth="400"                          
gridlines="0">
  <cfgraphdata value="2" item="2">
  <cfgraphdata value="2.5" item="2.5">
  <cfgraphdata value="2.7" item="2.7">
  <cfgraphdata value="3" item="3">
</cfgraph>

All three work as expected in cf5.

Andrew
