Subject Re: How to create a line chart without smoothed lines
Date Mon, 01 Jun 2015 20:29:42 GMT
I did not actually try this so it is completely untested, but
something like the following should allow to access things inside the
XML without actually needing to change or recompile POI:

        XSSFChart xssfChart = (XSSFChart) chart;
        CTPlotArea plotArea = xssfChart.getCTChart().getPlotArea();
        CTBoolean ctBool = CTBoolean.Factory.newInstance();

replace getLineChartArray() with any of the other chart types that is
available and iterate over the array if you have multiple plots as
part of a single chart.
