Overview

Here's how to make a Line graph:

g = Gruff::Line.new
g.title = "A Line Graph"
g.data 'Fries', [20, 23, 19, 8]
g.data 'Hamburgers', [50, 19, 99, 29]
g.write("test/output/line.png")

There are also other options described below, such as #baseline_value, #baseline_color, #hide_dots, and #hide_lines.

Constructor Details

#initialize(*args) ⇒ Line

Call with target pixel width of graph (800, 400, 300), and/or 'false' to omit lines (points only).

g = Gruff::Line.new(400) # 400px wide with lines

g = Gruff::Line.new(400, false) # 400px wide, no lines (for backwards compatibility)

g = Gruff::Line.new(false) # Defaults to 800px wide, no lines (for backwards compatibility)

The preferred way is to call hide_dots or hide_lines instead.

#dataxy(name, x_data_points = [], y_data_points = [], color = nil) ⇒ Object

This method allows one to plot a dataset with both X and Y data.

Parameters are as follows:

 name: string, the title of the dataset
 x_data_points: an array containing the x data points for the graph
 y_data_points: an array containing the y data points for the graph
 color: hex number indicating the line color as an RGB triplet

 or

 name: string, the title of the dataset
 xy_data_points: an array containing both x and y data points for the graph
 color: hex number indicating the line color as an RGB triplet

Notes:
 -if (x_data_points.length != y_data_points.length) an error is 
   returned.
 -if the color argument is nil, the next color from the default theme will
   be used.
 -if you want to use a preset theme, you must set it before calling
   dataxy().

Example:

g = Gruff::Line.new
g.title = "X/Y Dataset"
g.dataxy("Apples", [1,3,4,5,6,10], [1, 2, 3, 4, 4, 3])
g.dataxy("Bapples", [1,3,4,5,7,9], [1, 1, 2, 2, 3, 3])
g.dataxy("Capples", [[1,1],[2,3],[3,4],[4,5],[5,7],[6,9]])
#you can still use the old data method too if you want:
g.data("Capples", [1, 1, 2, 2, 3, 3])  
#labels will be drawn at the x locations of the keys passed in.
In this example the lables are drawn at x positions 2, 4, and 6:
g.labels = {0 => '2003', 2 => '2004', 4 => '2005', 6 => '2006'}
The 0 => '2003' label will be ignored since it is outside the chart range.

Raises:

  • (ArgumentError)
