language in PixelPerfect line chart date time axis



Hi everybody,

I have a PixelPerfect line chart with a date time x-axis. Thanks to PixelPerfect Stacked Lines Chart it looks really well, but I have one last issue.

The arguments of the x-axis are single days displayed in month format. How can I set the language of the months to English instead of German, i. e. 'Mar' instead of 'Mrz'?

In the source qvw I already have english monthnames (SET MonthNames='Jan;Feb;Mar;Apr;May;Jun;Jul;Aug;Sep;Oct;Nov;Dec';).


Thank you for your help.

What are the OS regional setting on your NPrinting engine server - looks like it is German - isn't? Try setting it up to English.

Hi Lech and thank you for your suggestion.

First I thought to change the OS date format does the job. I tried with English format on the server and on the machine where NPrinting Designer is installed (yes, it was German). In Designer "May" is displayed, but in a PDF generated via preview or publish task it is "Mai" (see screenshot). Perhaps it is because I only changed the date format and not the whole regional setting.


But for now I will use month numbers as a workaround. Not so nice because in other objects of this report I use short english monthnames, but in the end the same information.

Kind regards
