Exporting chart images to the clipboard.


Recommended Posts


I've been working on implementing toolbar items for WPF charts as in ChartFX 7.

I manged to export chart images as one of image file formats, but I couldn't find a way to exporting them to the clipboard.

If I could find the properties related to the currently displayed chart image, I thought I might use the ApplicationCommands.Copy.Execute() method to copy to the clipboard.

Any suggestions?

If you want to copy the current chart image to the clipboard you would do something like this

  System.IO.MemoryStream memoryStream = new System.IO.MemoryStream();

  chart1.Export(FileFormat.Png, memoryStream);

  memoryStream.Position = 0;

  System.Drawing.Bitmap bmp = new System.Drawing.Bitmap(memoryStream);

  Clipboard.SetDataObject(new DataObject(DataFormats.Bitmap, bmp), true);


If you are looking to copy the data to the clipboard as text we do not support this built-in, you could obviously retrieve the data using our API and copy the text to the clipboard though.
