The GraphPalette(TM) allows you to supply fully interactive graphs
within your application by simply dragging objects from its
palette. The GraphPalette is a collection of objects which graph
virtually any type of multiple range two-dimensional data.
Three graphical objects are provided on the GraphPalette: the OTGraph
is responsible for all graphing; the OTLegend is responsible for the
graph's key; the OTDMPump allows you to quickly test the insertion of
data in an OTGraph within InterfaceBuilder. Also provided with the
palette is the OTDataMngr object, a representation of multiple range
two-dimensional data with support for labels and titles.
In addition to these main objects, the GraphPalette comes with 16
support objects. Many of these support objects are custom graph types
which the OTGraph may use to plot the data. The GraphPalette provides
many graph types to choose from including line, marked line, scatter,
high-low, and bar graphs. In addition, a candlestick graph is
provided in source form as an example. You may create your own custom
graph types by subclassing one object and writing some simple
Postscript drawing commands.
What others say about GraphPalette
GraphPalette was reviewed in the June/July 93' issue of NeXTWORLD. The
palette was awarded a four cubes rating. The following is an excerpt
from that review.
Detailed documentation is included with the software.
GraphPalette is a powerful collection of objects for graphing almost
any kind of data. Without having to write a single line of code, you
can build an application to graph, for example, the price of two
stocks over a six month period. GraphPalette automatically scales
itself, draws labels and axes, and attractively displays your data as
a bar, grid, high-low, line or scatter pot. Special methods exist for
displaying information from real-time feeds.
Having spent days writing my own graphing routines, I was impressed by
the quality and range of graphs. The inclusion of 3-D and pie-chart
graph types would make this a perfect palette.
GraphPalette runs under NEXTSTEP 3.3 for NeXT, Intel, HPPA, and Sparc.
