Overview

The IGSeriesDataSource protocol is adopted by an object that mediates the application’s data model for an IGSeries object. The data source provides the series object with the information it needs to construct and modify a chart view.

The required methods of the protocol provide the points to be displayed by the chart view along with the total number of points in the series. There are also optional methods for creating point tooltips.

Instance Methods

allPointsForSeries:

Askds the data source for all IGDataPoint objects.

- (NSArray *)allPointsForSeries:(IGSeries *)series

Parameters

series

Series requesting the information.

Return Value

Returns an array of IGDataPoint objects.

Discussion

This method should only be implemented if your data is already in the IGDataPoint format. Otherwise you should covert your data point by point using the series:pointAtIndex: method.
