Re: graph: error in custom date specification

Thanks Jason. The link you posted refers to tables (maybe they are similar to graphs). Either way, i would prefer not to manually input a custom date format every time i click view as graph. Is there a way to change this as a default setting? It may just be easier to restore graphic default setting ...

Re: graph: error in custom date specification

Thanks for the reply. I'm aware of this, but which option would fix this? I assume it would be in the Axes & Scaling and Obs/Date axis. But I've tried with no luck

graph: error in custom date specification

Hi, I must have changed the default graphic settings without noticing somehow because i get an error message ('error in custom date specification ') when i try to view a series as a graph (see attached photos). Also when i use plot in the command line, the chart shows up but without any axis labels....

Re: Saving Graph

Ok. Will send you the workfile (and a more detailed explanation) at some point this week, although i think the issues was with my code for the template.

show graph maximized

Hi,

I was wondering if it is possible to use 'show graph' in a program with the option of having the graph view maximized (i.e. spanning the full view of Eviews)?

Thanks

Re: Saving Graph

Never mind. I tweaked the template using background(black) and that worked.

Saving Graph

I have a very basic question about saving graphs. I'm trying to save this attached graph (called graph) as a png file. The output i get is missing the axis numbers (see attachment called output). Am i missing a line of code? It PDFs fine (using the print command). But i'm unable to get "graph.s...

Re: DCOM on a server

Thanks for your help. I’ll provide an update in case anybody else is going through a similar issue. Steve suggested that i install the application on the terminal server machine that users are remote accessing, rather than have it saved on a shared drive. This way it runs as COM rather than DCOM (th...

DCOM on a server

Hi, I’d like to better understand how eviews licenses work on servers especially with regards to COM. We ceated an application that produces charts within eviews (using COM) and displays the chart in the application. I tested the app on everybody’s machine and it works as expected. However, when i t...

Re: COM automation

Declaring the sub as public worked. Now I can close Eviews without forcing it via the task manager or command prompt.

Thanks!

Re: COM automation

I'll be more specific.

I tried to use dispose to close the connection and it seems like it is not supported. Is there an equivalent that I can use to force close the connection between the application and Eviews?

Re: COM automation

Steve, Thank you for the info. So I've already built the project, and i'm testing the application through the executable file. I prefer that users run the app from within Eviews because they can click on the run button and see the chart. I can use the app.show function at the end, to bring Eviews in...

Re: COM automation

So it worked when i restarted my computer. I've gone through this link (http://www.eviews.com/download/whitepapers/EViews_COM_Automation.pdf) to try to figure out how exactly the Eviews instances work. From what i understand, i can specify a session ID, to only use that instance of Eviews. Here is w...
