New install doesn't create chart at design time. Object reference not set


Recommended Posts

I have just installed a copy of ChartFX for Visual Studio 2005 on a machine running windows 2000.

On any project (web) when i drag a new chart control on the form the designer shows a grey box telling me that the "Object reference not set to an instance of object". All the dlls are loaded in the binary directory and the page directive is set correctly. The project builds and displays a chart OK on the actual webpage, but the designer always shows the same error message, regardless of anything i have tried.

Any help would be appreciated

Did you use the latest installer for Chart FX 7? If so, you may need to re-reference the Chart control from your toolbox. Please try removing the chart control from the toolbox and add it manually in the VS toolbar.

Follow the nexts steps to add the Chart FX icon manually in the toolbox:

1. Right click on the Toolbox and select "Choose Items..." opiton

2. Select the Chart component (Chart.webforms/Chart.Winforms - 7.0.3306)

3. The Chart icon will be added in the VS toolbox

Let me know if this helps.
