SVG::TT::graph::Line X label step size

user2829 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi All, I am trying to scale the number of points printed on X label. I am trying to use step_x_labels feature by setting it to 2 or 3 but doesn't seem to be working. I am also trying to print a limit line in the final printed graph. I have 400 data points ( Amplitude vs Frequencies ) and printing all the labels gives it a very ugly look :(.. I am also trying to point the maximum Amplitude and Frequency Data Point. I would appreciate for a reply/guidance. User2829

    I'm almost sure it is a copy and paste error in line 42, but without any sample code that I can run to reproduce the error it's a little hard to be sure.

    You will get better answers if you include a little (5 - 30 lines) code that demonstrates the problem you are having.

      here is the code... Thank you for the reply
      use SVG::TT::Graph::Line; my @fields = qw(Jan Feb Mar Jan Feb Mar Jan Feb Mar Jan Feb Mar Jan F +eb Mar Jan Feb Mar ); my @data_sales_02 = qw(12 45 21 12 45 21 12 45 21 12 45 21 12 45 21 12 + 45 21); my @data_sales_03 = qw(-15 -30 -40); open(IMG, ">>Wf.html") or print "Error:- $!"; my $graph = SVG::TT::Graph::Line->new({ 'height' => '500', 'width' => '300', 'fields' => \@fields, 'min_scale_value' => '0', 'max_scale_value' => '100', 'step_x_labels' => '2', }); $graph->add_data({ 'data' => \@data_sales_02, 'title' => 'Sales 2002', }); #print "Content-type: image/svg+xml\n\n"; print IMG $graph->burn();

        Adding stagger_x_labels => 1, to the new parameter list generates a graph with non-overlapping x labels for me. Another possibility is to use rotate_x_labels => 1,, although that rotates the labels the wrong way for my taste.

    Crossposted at StackOverflow. It is better to inform about the fact so people willing to help can profit from the help already given in the other site.
