Convert FieldUsage.XValue to String


Recommended Posts

How can I get the following to accept a string (or varchar from DB):

chrtCompStrat.DataSourceSettings.Fields.Add(New FieldMap("X-Axis", FieldUsage.XValue))

When I use an int for "X-Axis", everything works fine but when I use a string I get the following:

System.FormatException was unhandled by user code

  Message="Input string was not in a correct format."

When FieldUsage.XValue is used, data passed must be datetime or double value, that's why the "input string was not in a correct format" messages raise. So, you must manually assign Axis labels in order to use string types.

 vRow is a row from my DataTable object

 foreach (DataRow vRow in vTable.Rows) {
