MBS Chart Director questions


I am looking at the MBS Chart Director. I must say I am really impressed so far. I have a couple of questions though:

  • fonts: it uses fonts of this kind “timesbi.ttf”, however I’d like to use the system font such as Font(i) in xojo. How to convert them? How to handle “bold”, “italic”, etc…

  • chat and axes titles: how to set the distance from the plot area?


For the fonts, maybe read the documentation here:

you can use the font family names, but examples use common names which work on all platforms.

CDAxisMBS.setTitlePos changes the space between axis and it’s title.

With the chart setPlotArea will define where chart is plotted.
When adding chat title with addTitle, you get a CDTextBoxMBS where you can set some position properties.
