Chart - DataSeries Order

Chart - DataSeries Order

Chart - DataSeries Order

Hi All

I'm a bit of a novice with PS, and have been trying to create a graphic, following the tutorial here.

There a section where he enters x & y values using an array:

CODE --> Powershell

# add data to chart 
$Cities = @{London=7556900; Berlin=3429900; Madrid=3213271; Rome=2726539; 
$Chart.Series["Data"].Points.DataBindXY($Cities.Keys, $Cities.Values) 

I've modified this to enter my own series of data, but it does not seem to have any specific order when displayed on the chart. I need the data to display in the order that I've entered it into the array - London, Berlin, Madrid, Rome, Paris (X axis). How can I do that?


RE: Chart - DataSeries Order

To answer my own question:

(variables are different, but you get the idea)

CODE --> Powershell

$mySeries1 = new-object System.Windows.Forms.DataVisualization.Charting.Series

$myChart.Series["Series1"].Points[0].AxisLabel = "My Data 1"
$myChart.Series["Series1"].Points[1].AxisLabel = "My Data 2"
$myChart.Series["Series1"].Points[2].Label = "High Data"
$myChart.Series["Series1"].Points[2].AxisLabel = "My Data 3"
$myChart.Series["Series1"].Points[2].Color = "green"
$myChart.Series["Series1"].Points[3].AxisLabel = "My Data 4"
$myChart.Series["Series1"].Points[4].AxisLabel = "My Data 5"
