Syntax for adjusting the bottom of a chart


I need some help adjusting the bottom of my chart.

As you can see from the image above my X-axis tags are truncated. I am charting a variable, and my variable contents are gathered with he following code:

fgChartVariance = ArraySelectedBuild(cr(), “”, {«AcctName» + tab() + «Variance»})

fgChartVariance = cr()+fgChartVariance +cr()+{“bottommargin”}+tab()+ {60}

Here is the actual contents of my variable:

“bottommargin” 60

However, I can’t get the bottom margin to change. I assume I am making a syntax error someplace. Perhaps someone has better eyes than I have.


Your screenshot shows “bottom margin” as a value in your chart. So it does not seem to be appropriate to append it as a new line to your array.

The PanX help for charts shows this syntax:


I do not know if the curly quotes are an artifact of the forum, but the code sample above is using straight quotes.


Kurt is correct, the bottom margin is not supposed to be part of the data, it is a separate pair of parameters to the chart( function.


I see the error of my ways. I had misplaced the parameter pair in the chart data. I have now moved the parameter pair to its appropriate place within the chart function, and everything works great. My chart function now looks like this:

Chart(fgChartVariance, “bottommargin”, 200) where fgChartVariance contains the chart data. My graph now looks much better:

Thanks for the help!
