Hi,

I want to add one vertical line for today's date on my line chart.

Is it possible to draw custom line dynamically in line chart.

Thanks in advance

    Madhuri,

    To truly tell you if it would be possible, you really need to be more clear about your requirements. Please write detailed information.

    Thanks,

    Kyle

    I think you will probably need CRChart by ThreeD Graphics (www.threedgraphics.com). AFAIK, it's written by the guys who supply the charting module to Crystal, so integrates 100%, even if it's a bit fiddly.

    It's a bit pricey (more than CR!), but if you need that functionality, it's about your only option. I've bought it do add a 'your average' linesymbol and 'everyone's average' linesymbol to a chart.

    Essentially, it uses macros to plot user defined lines, box fills, shapes etc onto your chart.

    You put something like this into the text fields of the chart:

    @user_line 0,0,3,100 = draw a line from the 0,0 point to the 3rd group, 50th y-value.

    You can use variable to define these points, so if you have a chart in a group, it'll display a different line position for each group.
