Suggestion: Chart appearance options   09 August 2020, 11:47

My NetWorx support period is up, and I was looking at possibly renewing when I saw NetGenius. It seems to be a lot more focused on what I'd be interested in than NetWorx is, but I have one small issue, and that's with the "chart" column (and the corresponding chart in the taskbar extension). It's IMO wasteful of space.

Simply put, I'm a big fan of NetWorx's histogram display (basically one pixel per second instead of one wide bar per second like NetGenius has) and would appreciate the option to go back to a similarly more information-dense approach - or, at least, be able to do a line graph in those charts like the main chart does.

Is this something that can be done? Please let me know. Thanks!

That's a good point.

I guess we can either add a setting to choose the chart line width, or simply make the current charts more dense. I will post an update here shortly, please stay tuned.

We have halved the size of the chart ticks, which should now accommodate twice as much data.

While it's not accessible as a setting, you can set a custom value in the registry. The minimum value is 2.
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SoftPerfect\NetGenius\Chart\TickWidth
If you do so, please close NetGenius via File - Exit in the main menu to ensure your change is not overwritten.

This is what the new default size looks like:

Works wonderfully, and I now have a NetGenius license. Thanks!
