fit-chart-items

Arguments: chart-widget

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

fit-chart-items is a boolean value indicating whether the chart items of a chart-widget are spaced apart by an amount that causes the items to exactly fill the length of the item axis. The default value is nil.

Turning this property on can make a chart look neater as long as it does not cause the items to be squeezed too closely together or stretched too far apart.

When this property is nil, item spacing is determined by a combination of other properties, largely to prevent the graph objects and axis tic mark labels from running into each other. These properties include value-spacing, bar-width, bar-spacing, values-are-stacked, minor-tics-per-major-tic, major-label-frequency, minor-label-frequency, major-label-min-spacing, minor-label-min-spacing, major-label-font, minor-label-font, major-label-wrapping, and minor-label-wrapping.
