NAME ^

Chart::Clicker::Axis - An X or Y Axis

VERSION ^

version 2.88

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Chart::Clicker::Axis;
  use Graphics::Primitive::Font;
  use Graphics::Primitive::Brush;

  my $axis = Chart::Clicker::Axis->new({
    label_font  => Graphics::Primitive::Font->new,
    orientation => 'vertical',
    position => 'left',
    brush => Graphics::Primitive::Brush->new,
    visible => 1,
  });

DESCRIPTION ^

Chart::Clicker::Axis represents the plot of the chart.

ATTRIBUTES ^

height

The height of the axis.

width

This axis' width.

tick_label_angle

The angle (in radians) to rotate the tick's labels.

tick_division_type

Selects the algorithm for dividing the graph axis into labelled ticks.

The currently included algorithms are: "Exact" in Chart::Clicker::Data::DivisionType::Exact, "LinearRounded" in Chart::Clicker::Data::DivisionType::LinearRounded.

You may write your own by providing a Moose Role which includes Role Chart::Clicker::Data::DivisionType and prefixing the module name with + when setting tick_division_type.

 Chart::Clicker::Axis->new(tick_division_type => '+MyApp::TickDivision');

This value should only be set once per axis.

baseline

The 'baseline' value of this axis. This is used by some renderers to change the way a value is marked. The Bar render, for instance, considers values below the base to be 'negative'.

brush

The brush for this axis. Expects a Graphics::Primitve::Brush.

color

The color of the axis' border. Expects a Graphics::Color::RGB object. Defaults to black.

format

The format to use for the axis values.

If the format is a string then format is applied to each value 'tick' via sprintf. See sprintf perldoc for details! This is useful for situations where the values end up with repeating decimals.

If the format is a coderef then that coderef will be executed and the value passed to it as an argument.

  my $nf = Number::Format->new;
  $default->domain_axis->format(sub { return $nf->format_number(shift); });

fudge_amount

The amount to 'fudge' the span of this axis. You should supply a percentage (in decimal form) and the axis will grow at both ends by the supplied amount. This is useful when you want a bit of padding above and below the dataset.

As an example, a fugdge_amount of .10 on an axis with a span of 10 to 50 would add 5 to the top and bottom of the axis.

hidden

This axis' hidden flag. If this is true then the Axis will not be drawn.

label

The label of the axis.

label_color

The color of the Axis' labels. Expects a Graphics::Color::RGB object.

label_font

The font used for the axis' label. Expects a Graphics::Primitive::Font object.

layout_manager

Set/Get the Layout Manager. Defaults to Layout::Manager::Absolute.

orientation

The orientation of this axis. See Graphics::Primitive::Oriented.

position

The position of the axis on the chart.

range

The Range for this axis. Expects a Chart::Clicker::Data::Range object. You may use this to explicitly set an upper and lower bound for the chart:

  $axis->range->max(1000);
  $axis->range->min(1);

show_ticks

If this is value is false then 'ticks' and their labels will not drawn for this axis.

staggered

If true, causes horizontally labeled axes to 'stagger' the labels so that half are at the top of the box and the other half are at the bottom. This makes long, overlapping labels less likely to overlap. It only does something useful with horizontal labels.

skip_range

Allows you to specify a range of values that will be skipped completely on this axis. This is often used to trim a large, unremarkable section of data. If, for example, 50% of your values fall below 10 and 50% fall above 100 it is useless to bother charting the 10 to 100 range. Skipping it with this attribute will make for a much more useful chart, albeit somewhat visually skewed.

  $axis->skip_range(Chart::Clicker::Data::Range->new(lower => 10, upper => 100));

Note that any data points, including ticks, that fall inside the range specified will be completely ignored.

tick_font

The font used for the axis' ticks. Expects a Graphics::Primitive::Font object.

tick_label_color

The color of the tick labels. Expects a Graphics::Color::RGB object.

tick_labels

The arrayref of labels to show for ticks on this Axis. This arrayref is consulted for every tick, in order. So placing a string at the zeroeth index will result in it being displayed on the zeroeth tick, etc, etc.

tick_values

The arrayref of values show as ticks on this Axis.

ticks

The number of 'ticks' to show. Setting this will divide the range on this axis by the specified value to establish tick values. This will have no effect if you specify tick_values.

METHODS ^

add_to_tick_values

Add a value to the list of tick values.

clear_tick_values

Clear all tick values.

tick_value_count

Get a count of tick values.

mark

Given a span and a value, returns it's pixel position on this Axis.

format_value

Given a value, returns it formatted using this Axis' formatter.

divvy

Retrieves the divisions or ticks for the axis.
