|Specifies the numeric label format types.|
|Description:||ApNumberFormatEnum defines numeric label format types. An XY Plot Control object that has numeric labels is an axis. The following are the available types:|
apNumberInteger - Displays a number as an integer. If the actual number is fractional, it will be rounded.
apNumberFixed - Displays a fixed real number with a specified number of decimal places. The default is 6 if precision is not specified.
apNumberScientific - Displays a number in scientific notation with a specified number of decimal places. The default is 6 if precision is not specified.
apNumberCompact - Defines an automatic way to use either apNumberFixed or apNumberScientific formats based on the size of the value. Precision information indicates the exponent to start displaying in scientific format.
Precision = 5
The value 100,000 displays as 1e+005
10,000 displays as 10000.
The compact type also truncates trailing zeros to the right of the decimal point.
10.0 displays as 10 and 10.10 displays as 10.1.
apNumberAbsoluteTime - Interprets a number as the number of seconds since 00:00 GMT on January 1, 1970.
A fixed axis has limits of 0 to 90.
The lower limit is January 1, 1970 12:00:00 AM.
The upper limit is 90 seconds later, January 1, 1970 12:01:30 AM.
Time Format String Notation
You need to specify the time format to display. The format is a string with one or more of the following elements. If you use spaces to separate the elements in the format string, these spaces will appear in the same location in the output string. The letters must be in uppercase or lowercase as shown (for example, "ss", not "SS"). Characters in the format string that are enclosed in single quotation marks will appear in the same location and unchanged in the output string.
To display 01/01/1999 12:05:00 AM, use the following format string: MM/dd/yyyy hh:mm:ss tt.
apNumberRelativeTime - Interprets a number as an elapsed time value in seconds. You can use ApRelativeTimeEnum to select the time format you want to display.
apNumberCustom - Uses a format string in the standard C language format notation to display a number.
apNumberAbsoluteTimeEx - This format type is equivalent to the
January 4, 1900 12:00 AM has a value of 5.00
January 4, 1900 06:00 AM has a value of 5.25
January 4, 1900 12:00 PM has a value of 5.50
January 4, 1900 09:00 PM has a value of 5.875
Time Format String Notation
You need to specify the time format to display. The format argument consists of one or more of the following codes. The formatting codes are preceded by a percent sign (%). Characters that do not begin with % are displayed unchanged.
The # flag may prefix any formatting code. In that case, the meaning of the format code is changed as follows:
