Content per bins do not fit with the Histogram

Can someone pleas explain me why the value of my content per bins dosn’t fit with my histogram ?

TFile f{"RAW148OS_treeFF01.root"};
std::unique_ptr<TTree> tv__tree{static_cast<TTree*>(f.Get("Analysis_All"))};

TH1 *h1 = dynamic_cast<TH1*>(gPad->GetPrimitive("h1")); // Obtention de l'histogramme h1

// Vérifiez si l’histogramme existe
if (h1) { // Utilisation de h1 pour vérifier si l'histogramme existe
    // Accédez aux données de l’histogramme
    int nbins = h1->GetNbinsX();
    for (int i = 1; i <= nbins; ++i) {
        double binContent = h1->GetBinContent(i);
        // Faites quelque chose avec le contenu du bin, par exemple, l’afficher
        std::cout << "Contenu du bin " << i << " : " << binContent << std::endl;
} else {
    std::cout << "L’histogramme n’a pas été trouvé." << std::endl;

Hi @KillianUB,
could you provide the root file you are using, it is difficult to say something without data.

From waht I can see the code seems correct overall, the only thing I will modify is the decalration of the histogram from a generic TH1 to TH1D or TH1F

The DATA is unfortunatly to heavy to be provided even with dropbox or wetransfer. But i can show you that ;

As you can see, it dosnt makes sense at all. Even worst , if I change from all detector to only one detector the resultat stay the same what ever i change.

I just noticed that you used colz option that is meant for TH2 histograms, I do not know if this can cause prblems.

In any case I suggest you to change dynamic_cast<TH1*>(gPad->GetPrimitive("h1")) to
(TH1F*)gPad->GetPrimitive("h1") that is the method described in the Tree::Draw() method on the ROOT page.

Problem has been solved. There has a shift of 500 bins wish is why the content per bins dosnt fitted with histogram. I just changed


and then it worked.

Thx for your help !

You can crop the TTree with RDataFrame and share a small reproducible.

ROOT::RDataFrame df("Analysis_All", "RAW148OS_treeFF01.root").Range(100).Snapshot(""Analysis_All", "RAW148OS_treeFF01_cropped.root"")
