Re-draw of simple annotated chart throws TargetInvocationException, WHY?

Recommended Posts

Hi, could someone shed some light on why i am getting a

TargetInvocationException (full error text below)

from my winform app? All it does is draw a simple chart and add two lines to

it as annotations, i provide the full code below.

That much works fine.

HOWEVER, if i hit the Go button to run the chart again it throws the error.

I tried clearing the chart using "AllData",

it didn't help. Something is not being re-set properly, but what!!??

thx

j.

But, did you press the "Go" button a 2nd time, right after the first. That

is when it dies....

I upgraded my version to v6.2 SP that is on the web site, so that

ChartFX.dll is

file last modified 3/19/04

assembly version 6.2.1342.0

file version 6.2.1539.21391

Same problem still exists.....on the 2nd click it dies every time with

An unhandled exception of type

'System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException' occurred in

system.windows.forms.dll

Additional information: Exception has been thrown by the target

of an invocation.

Ah ! ok. Now I get the crash. It wasn't clear to me in the first posting

that I had to press the GO button twice.

There is a bug in ClearData. We will fix this problem in the next SP.

Workaround, avoid calling ClearData with AllData. Instead, include the flags

that you need only but DO NOT include Extensions.

For example:

Data

Chart1.Extensions.Clear()

Chart1.ClearData(SoftwareFX.ChartFX.ClearDataFlag.Data)

Hello ChartFx Support

  We are getting the same error  that is indicated in this thread with Windows 2008 terminal server.  The workaround suggested doesn't seem to work. Do we have a different workaround or a patch that does fix this issue?
