There is quite a bit of new stuff in there. I'll get some examples
the blog as time goes on, but meanwhile please feel free to ask
here. The IDE version gets the new chart features a little bit ahead
community version as a thank you for the support.
Entrance Version 1.8
-- COPY CHART
"Copy Chart" is now in the chart popup menu for copying one
chart to the clipboard. To make its background clear, so that
is under the chart shows through, use these commands:
-- FONTSIZE, TITLEFONTSIZE
These two new keywords have been added to set the size of the default
title fonts in points:
You can also set font properties using
FONT (name) (style) (size)
TITLEFONT (name) (style) (size)
The font families available depends on the OS, but "sans serif",
"monospaced" are always available. The font_style can be PLAIN, BOLD,
Font sizes are specified in points.
-- HTML #rrggbb COLOR SYNTAX
HTML color syntax is now supported by the command line and servlet
(The destkop version supports it as well, but syntax highlighting will
-- IMPROVED LINE AND AREA DRAWING
Line and area drawing have been improved and are faster. This blog
The PLOT syntax document is now available in Spanish:
as well as Japanese, French and Russian. To switch between languages
the language code "es" with "en", "fr", "jp" or "ru". The previous
(see below) show how to add PLOT syntax notes to the Entrance Help
Please let us know if you can help with other translations!
-- First Look: GEOMETRY Series Type
XYChart, BitmapChart, and EarthChart now support GEOMETRY columns.
are still experimental, but fun to play with.
A geometry column can contain geometric primitives in "Well Known
format. Here are some examples:
LINESTRING(3 4,10 50,20 25)
POLYGON((1 1,5 1,5 5,1 5,1 1),(2 2,2 3,3 3,3 2,2 2))
MULTIPOINT((3.5 5.6),(4.8 10.5))
MULTILINESTRING((3 4,10 50,20 25),(-5 -8,-10 -8,-15 -4))
MULTIPOLYGON(((1 1,5 1,5 5,1 5,1 1),(2 2,2 3,3 3,3 2,2 2)),((6
3,9 2,9 4,6 3)))
GEOMETRYCOLLECTION(POINT(4 6),LINESTRING(4 6,7 10))
There is a good introduction to the MySQL "Well Known Text" extensions
This are some pitfalls to be aware of:
1) GEOMETRY series types are only supported by XYChart, BitmapChart or
EarthChart, so your script must begin with PLOT (one of those types).
2) MySQL binary geometry columns must be converted to text using
3) There is a bug in the desktop application that causes GEOMETERY
to resize themselves with each repaint.
