Simple component inherited from ChartFX.WinForms.Chart. Designer in VS doesn't work and even crashes VS.

I tried to make a component - simply inherited from Chart class, something like this:

using System;

using System.ComponentModel;

using ChartFX.WinForms;

namespace MyApplication


public partial class MyChart : Chart


public MyChart()




public MyChart(IContainer container)







but then when I added MyChart component instance to my form, it actually became instance of ChartFX.WinForms.Chart class,

which is, I guess, not right.

Well, I am still able to change a few lines in the code - to set the instance to be of type MyChart, but after that when I

try to access the Visual Studio designer of MyChart by clicking for example "Select Chart Gallery", I get "Object

reference not set to an instance of an object", and moreover, when I clicked "About ChartFX..." - Visual Studio crashed.

What do you think of this?
