Hi Guys,

is there the possibilty to manage "error bars" with this great UDF?

For me error bars are the better solution to achive this:

A scatter chart with a vertical error bar and a label: a "dynamic" vertical bar.

Suggestions?

Thanks!

Hi maba,

not yet.

Can you create the vertical lines with Excel manually? If yes, you could create a macro and we can have alook at the VBA code and can try to translate it to AutoIt.

What version of Excel do you use?

Something like this:

Sub ErrorBar()
'
' ErrorBar Macro
'
'
    ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Grafico 4").Activate
    ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(2).Select
    ActiveChart.SeriesCollection.NewSeries
    ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(11).Name = "=""Error"""
    ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(11).XValues = "='Tabelle gestione grafico'!$H$9"
    ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(11).Values = "='Tabelle gestione grafico'!$I$9"
    ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Grafico 4").Activate
    ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(11).Select
    ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(8).HasErrorBars = True
    ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Grafico 4").Activate
    ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(11).ErrorBars.Select
    ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(11).ErrorBar Direction:=xlY, Include:= _
        xlMinusValues, Type:=xlFixedValue, Amount:=1
    ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(11).ErrorBars.EndStyle = xlNoCap
    ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(11).ErrorBar Direction:=xlY, Include:= _
        xlMinusValues, Type:=xlPercent, Amount:=5
    ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(11).ErrorBar Direction:=xlY, Include:= _
        xlMinusValues, Type:=xlPercent, Amount:=100
    ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Grafico 4").Activate
    ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(11).ErrorBars.Select
    ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Grafico 4").Activate
    ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(11).Select
    ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Grafico 4").Activate
    ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(11).ApplyDataLabels
    ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Grafico 4").Activate
    ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(11).DataLabels.Select
    Selection.Position = xlLabelPositionCenter
End Sub

I think that I can use this for now, should it work.. right?

At least Office 2007!

If you translate it to AutoIt it should work.

ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(11).ErrorBar Direction:=xlY, Include:=xlMinusValues, Type:=xlPercent, Amount:=100
should become something like:
ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(11).ErrorBar($xlY, $xlMinusValues, $xlPercent, 100)
(but I'm not 100% sure - I will have to test it tomorrow)

Can you post a screenshot of the resulting Excel chart? So we can test that we get the same result when we put the error bars into a function of the UDF.

Ok, as is I have:

>Running AU3Check (1.54.22.0)  from:C:Program Files (x86)AutoIt3
Z:AutoITsamplesErrorBar.au3(15,93) : WARNING: $xlNoCap: possibly used before declaration.
$aExcel[1].SeriesCollection(1).ErrorBars.EndStyle = $xlNoCap                        ; No cap
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~^
Z:AutoITsamplesErrorBar.au3(16,45) : WARNING: $xlY: possibly used before declaration.
$aExcel[1].SeriesCollection(1).ErrorBar($xlY,
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~^

If I declare the vars, script works but I've two "Type mismatch" debug info.. If not styles aren't applied.

Probably not important now.

Bars does not cross X axis, in fact Display -> Direction is set to Both and not Negative and Error Amount is set to Fixed value: 5.0 and not Percentage: 100. Why? ;)

Label is not set correctly.. next step :)

Sorry, forgot to replace this two constants with their values.

$xlNoCap = 2 and $xlY = 1

I will post a screenshot of what I got with Excel 2010 tomorrow.

A little problem with the label.. but it is good. On Excel 2007.

The positioning of the text is not perfect in Excel 2010 too. We could either play around with changing the "left" property or to change the datalabels.position to center. But in this case the line will end in the center of the box. If we use a filling for the box then the line will be invisible and the text will be centered automatically.

I will check how much of the errorbar properties can be set by a function.

One thing: error bars series is always in "background": both SeriesCollection(1) and SeriesCollection(n) are always set behind other series.

You can change the plotorder of a data series within a chartgroup. It didn't work for the example - the markers of data series 2 always overwrite the errorbar.

Maybe this helps for your chart:

$aExcel[1].ChartGroups(1).SeriesCollection(2).PlotOrder = 1

Just for the records. When the error bars are moved to the secondary value axis they overwrite even the markers.

An example will follow!

      Hello, and good day
      Im trying to make a sentence autocompleter so that when you type certain words (or commands) the scripts, and im in need of help/pointers
      That is what i have at the time and the issues i have currently is that:
      - I cant find an easy way to reset the counter to 0 in case a different letter from those are pressed ( tried NOT _ispressed but i think i got it wrong)
      -Is there another way to detect the key press that _ispressed? (i couldnt find it so far), since i feel like it is too clunky ( although maybe that is just me and my way to code)
      - for some reason the hex code (6F) for the / (divide nume pad) isnt working for me
       
      Im thinking of making a text file with some words to use them as variables/comparations  (so that at least removes the need of a variable for the words in the script) and make the script make a temporal text file to save the input and then compare it with the other one. But i dont know if that is a good approach.
      Thanks for your time and patience.

      Hello,
      at first: i'm new here, so please forgive me my mistakes, and show them to me, just that i can learn to do better in the future.
      Now to my Problem: i have an excel sheet, where i just need some columns for further actions, but i have no idea how to add single columns to a new array.
      I found the following code(the one i just added as a file) from 'water' in this forum, but i wont get how i could add multiple columns into a new array.
      The biggest problem in my situation is that i dont know the count of the rows i need for the array, i just got a fix number of rows, which is 4.
       
      Hope you can help me, and sry again for this 'unlucky illustration'.
       
      btw: how can i add code shown as code here, instead of posting it as a attached file?.
