A datapoint definition extension point specifies a mapping entry between a datapoint definition name against the definition implementing class name. Note that all datapoint definition implementations must implement org.eclipse.birt.chart.datafeed.IDataPointDefinition. A datapoint definition is responsible for defining the data types of a datapoint entry and the display text.



Examples:

API Information:
Please refer to the javadocs for IDataPointDefinition in the org.eclipse.birt.chart.datafeed package.

Supplied Implementation:
Only the series that wants custom display of data point needs to implement the interface org.eclipse.birt.chart.datafeed.IDataPointDefinition and register it with extension point.
