Issue using Clientserver 62 with MDI applications in VS2005


Recommended Posts

Is there a known issue using ChartFX ClientServer 62 with a Multiple 

Document Interface (MDI) application?

It seems not possible to use chart objects on a MDI Client window. The chart

appears blank, apart from a displayed legend on the form. I'm using VB in

Visual studio 2005.

Thanks for the help

See attached for a printscreen. It looks like some kind of a bug to me, 

since the graph is populated and is actually there. I can export it to a

bitmap for example, but can't get it to be displayed in my application.

I desperately need some help on this

This is a sample that replicates the problem. You will notice that the graph 

object is blank, while you would expect to see the default bars, or a

mention of 'no data available'.

Thanks for the help

Hi!

Does anyone know how to resolve this?

I am having the same problem all morning - chart is displayed when a window is show as non-mdi, but as soon as I set MDIParent, I get the same result as in this post.

 f1 =  (); f1.Show(); 

but

 f2 =  ();f2.MdiParent = someParentForm; f2.Show();

It seems that a workaround is to dock a Chart inside a Panel container, and then dock the Panel inside the Form - in that case data is displayed correctly. The problem happens only when Chart is docked inside a window directly (or if anyone still has the problem, then this just may be an indirect workaround).
