Hello my friends

I have a txt file with the follow layout

error1 255
error2 34
error5 111
error3 23

and what i'm trying to achieve is, from this text file plot a trend chart with the errors and respective quantity!

this is the code that i'm using....

}

and your point is???

Hi there...

The graphic is not plotting can anyone help me to find where is the problem...

No of course not. I don't have that file and you have it commented out. You said the graphic was not plotting.

No of course not. I don't have that file and you have it commented out. You said the graphic was not plotting.

It was not plotting the data imported from the file,,,
the file contents...

error1 255
error2 34
error5 111
error3 23

it looks like this.... 1st column is the error description and the second the quantity...

:) sorry about my fail

I don't think you want an XYSeries for that. If you want it to be a line chart (bar chart seems more appropriate to me, but you seem to want the line chart), try this instead

private CategoryDataset createDataset() throws Exception {

    DefaultCategoryDataset dataset = new DefaultCategoryDataset();
    dataset.addValue(255, "Errors", "error1");
    dataset.addValue(34, "Errors", "error2");
    dataset.addValue(111, "Errors", "error5");
    dataset.addValue(23, "Errors", "error3");

    return dataset;
}

private JFreeChart createChart(CategoryDataset dataset) {
    // create the chart...
    JFreeChart chart = ChartFactory.createLineChart(
            "Medida", // chart title
            "Error Code", // x axis label
            "Count", // y axis label
            dataset, // data
            PlotOrientation.VERTICAL,
            true, // include legend
            true, // tooltips
            false // urls
    );

    return chart;
}

All you have to do is build that category dataset with the first and second elements of your spilt() on the text file line.

You are right... i want a bar chart... but as a newby i'm still trying to discover to potential of the javafreechart... reading trying reading trying... i'm too slowwww...

thank you for your lights...~

to change for a bar type what should i dooo?? :(

There is a bar chart demo file in the source\org\jfree\chart\demo directory of JFreeChart.

thank you once again....

my problem is allways with the collectage of the data from the txt file....

thank you

You already have the basic part of that in place. Read each line of the file, use split() to separate the elements, then add that pair of values to your series for the chart.

please tell me steps to draw bar graph from a file values using java and also code....

you want to use Java AND code? now, that 'll be a tough one I bet.
I'll give you the first couple of steps though:
1. try yourself
2. when you get in trouble, start a NEW thread, show us your efforts so we can see where you're going wrong
3. but hey, just read the thread you're replying to, everything you need can be derived from it
