SimpleBorder problem

User (Legacy)

I can't seem to set the chart border in C# code.

When I try this code:

using ChartFX.WebForms.Adornments;

using ChartFX.WebForms.Annotation;

using ChartFX.WebForms;


m_Chart.Border = new SimpleBorder(SimpleBorderType.Raised);

I get this error:

The type or namespace name 'SimpleBorder' does not exist in the namespace


It works fine if I do it via the designer, just not in the code.

for Visual Studio 2005\bin\ChartFX.WebForms....

My code behind has these #usings:

#using ChartFX.WebForms.Adornments;

#using ChartFX.WebForms.Annotation;

#using ChartFX.WebForms;

And the code I wrote is this (from the Chart FX Resource Center):

m_Chart.Border = new SimpleBorder(SimpleBorderType.Raised);

Which gives these two errors:

error CS0246: The type or namespace name 'SimpleBorder' could not be found

(are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)

error CS0103: The name 'SimpleBorderType' does not exist in the current


When I try to get intellisense to help by entering

"ChartFX.WebForms.Adornments." the only things intellisense offers are

IBackgroundAdornment and IBorderAdornment. Is there something else I'm

missing here?

The fact that you are getting only those two suggests that you are NOT 

referencing ChartFX.WebForms.Adornments.dll.

IBackgroundAdornment and IBorderAdornment are defined in


Please try the following:

1) Create a NEW Web Site

2) Drop a chart in a form

3) Add the following code to your Page_Load:

Chart1.Border = new
