Import doesn't take Section Colors

Recommended Posts

I am using Import and Export to pass formats between to gauges using the XML FileFormat, but they appears to be just minimum and maximum values in the XML and the colors seem to be the default for the Palette selected. 

How do I get the colors to transfer between gauges? 

Thanks,

Jacob

I have attached the code and an example of the XML where the colors were selected but they do not appear.

 Example XML:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<RadialGauge>

<BACKCOLOR>Transparent</BACKCOLOR>

<BORDER>

  <STYLE>RectangularBorder02</STYLE>

</BORDER>

<PALETTE>Default</PALETTE>

<TITLES>

  <ITEM>

<VISIBLE>False</VISIBLE>

<LAYOUT>

<TARGET>AnchorPoint</TARGET>

</LAYOUT>

<TEXT>%v</TEXT>

  </ITEM>

</TITLES>

<SCALES>

  <ITEM>

<COLOR>#ffd7e1f3</COLOR>

<INDEX>0</INDEX>

<MIN>0</MIN>

<MAX>100</MAX>

<TICKMARKS>

<VISIBLE>True</VISIBLE>

<MAJOR>

  <LABEL>

<VISIBLE>True</VISIBLE>

  </LABEL>

</MAJOR>

</TICKMARKS>

<BAR>

<BORDER>

  <VISIBLE>True</VISIBLE>

</BORDER>

</BAR>

<INDICATORS>

<ITEM type="ChartFX.WinForms.Gauge.Needle">

  <INDEX>0</INDEX>

</ITEM>

</INDICATORS>

<SECTIONS>

<ITEM>

  <INDEX>0</INDEX>

  <MAX>25</MAX>

</ITEM>

<ITEM>

  <INDEX>1</INDEX>

  <MIN>25</MIN>

  <MAX>75</MAX>

</ITEM>

<ITEM>

  <INDEX>2</INDEX>

  <MIN>75</MIN>

</ITEM>

</SECTIONS>

  </ITEM>

</SCALES>

</RadialGauge>

 Code:

Public Function PropertyToString(ByRef fromClass As ChartFX.WinForms.Gauge.BaseGauge) As String

  Dim memStream As New MemoryStream()

  Dim reader As StreamReader

  Dim propertyString As String

 

  fromClass.Export(ChartFX.WinForms.Gauge.FileFormat.XmlTemplate, memStream)

  memStream.Seek(0, SeekOrigin.Begin)

 

  reader = New StreamReader(memStream)

  propertyString = reader.ReadToEnd()

  reader.Close()

  memStream.Close()

 

  Return propertyString

  End Function

 

  Public Sub StringToClass(ByRef fromString As String, ByRef toClass As ChartFX.WinForms.Gauge.BaseGauge)

  Dim memStream As New MemoryStream()

  Dim writer As StreamWriter

 

  writer = New StreamWriter(memStream)

  writer.AutoFlush = True

  writer.Write(fromString)

  memStream.Seek(0, SeekOrigin.Begin)

 

  toClass.Import(ChartFX.WinForms.Gauge.FileFormat.XmlTemplate, memStream)

  writer.Close()

  memStream.Close()

  End Sub

I figured this out.  I change a call to the section constructor from the one that took in min, max, and color and replaced it with the default one.  After setting them manually it fixed the issue.
