QCPFinancial wrong ?Return to overview

The problem I have now is that the key of QCPFinancial does not correspond to the key of the axis. What's wrong?

And you can see the picture https://ibb.co/mFrv9TS

Thanks.

Solved. ticker->setTickOrigin(datas.at(0)->key); need set tick origin

But why need to do that?

Possibly something to do with your local time zone and the time zone you encode your data with when you call the QDate method? Also consider times, and not only dates, so temporarily use a label format that includes times for the respective ticks...

Thanks Isso. QCPAxisTickerText can achieve what you said.

I haved Solved. But I don't know why.

why need setTickOrigin for QCPAxisTickerDateTime
