chart-items-min-index

Arguments: chart-widget

Returns the value of the chart-items-min-index property of a chart-widget. The value may be set at creation time by passing the :chart-items-min-index initarg, or any time later by calling (setf chart-items-min-index).

chart-items-min-index is the index of the first chart item of a chart-widget that should be displayed at the current time. The value should be a non-negative integer, or else nil to effectively default to zero. The default value is nil.

If set-chart-value has been used to add items to the chart, then any item whose index is less than this property value (if it is a number) will not appear in the chart. When the property value is nil or zero, then no items are excluded. This property can be used to display only a subset of collected values that are of interest at the moment.

If instead a chart-value-returner function is used for looking up chart data, then this property could be used if your function handles a range of item indeces that does not begin at zero.

To permanently remove older items rather than temporarily excluding them from view, use chart-items-limit.

See also chart-items-max-index.
