ClassCastException in BubbleChart if x-axis is a CategoryAxis

    Details

    • Type: Bug

      Description

      The bubble chart probably makes sense only if the x-axis is a NumberAxis. Otherwise, the bubble radius is meaningless along the x-axis. However, it does not complain when I provide a CategoryAxis instead. During layouting it will run into a ClassCastException then (see below). From this point on the scene (in a JFXPanel) is frozen.

      java.lang.ClassCastException: javafx.scene.chart.CategoryAxis cannot be cast to javafx.scene.chart.NumberAxis

      I think this is a minor priority bug. Situation could be improved easily by throwing IllegalArgumentException when trying to set a non-number x-axis. Also, it would be good to document this requirement.
