I want to visualise a theoretical temperature over time (in order to let people create some recipes like heating to that point, cooling again, …). I’d also like if people could click on the graph and see what step in the recipe it is.
This seems possible to achieve through nabling the x-trace mode, and getting the crosshair position (
Though the visualisation of the crosshairs is quite annoying for me.
When I set the axis to be a time axis, I always see the clicked time in milliseconds (even when the axis is in a different format). Another annoyance is that the time axis displays the time in UTC, while the time comes in TZ-agnostic from the database, but automatically gets interpreted as CET in the dataset.
And when I set the axis to be a date axis, it always shows a date (like 1970 for when the time is unix based). Thoug at least the time visualisation is fine here.
I also tried with a number axis (then I could only show the integer hours), but with I couldn’t control the ticks with a number axis, so always got ticks in-between the integer hours.
Can someone give advice on what path to follow?
