Get Title.text

User (Legacy)

Recommended Posts

The API reference states that Chart.Titles "Allows you to set a title to the

top of a chart."

Is there any way to get the titles? I've heard of read-only properties, but

this is the first write-only property I've come accross.

Dim titleline As SoftwareFX.ChartFX.Internet.Server.TitleDockable =


Dim strTitle As String = titleline.Text

strTitle is getting the original value of the title - ignoring any changes

the user has made.

Alternatively, is there any way to dis-allow the user from editing the

1) How is this title being created, the tile property is not "write-only",

you can get the value back. I think you are asking for the wrong one though.

Like most arrays in .NET, the first title is Title[0].

2) You can customize the menus so that titles can't be edited. See

programmer's guide on "Tool Customization" for more details.

I create the title like this:

'Set the title properties...

Dim title As SoftwareFX.ChartFX.Internet.Server.TitleDockable

Dim strTitleLine As String

Dim intTitleLine As Integer = 0

For Each strTitleLine In objHCMGServer.TableTitle

title = cfxDefault.Titles(intTitleLine)

title.Alignment = System.Drawing.StringAlignment.Center

title.Font = New System.Drawing.Font("Arial", 9,


title.Text = strTitleLine

title.TextColor = System.Drawing.Color.Black

title.LineGap = 2

intTitleLine = intTitleLine + 1


I get the values back like this:

Dim title As SoftwareFX.ChartFX.Internet.Server.TitleDockable

Dim strTitle As String()

Dim intLines As Integer = 0

ReDim strTitle(0)

For Each title In cfxDefault.Titles

If title.DockArea = SoftwareFX.ChartFX.DockArea.Top Then

intLines += 1

If strTitle.Length < intLines Then ReDim Preserve


strTitle(intLines - 1) = title.Text

End If


Dim objHCMGServer As HCMGServer = Session("HCMGServer")

objHCMGServer.TableTitle = strTitle

And this works fine ... unless the user has edited the titles. The original

values of Titles gets returned. It doesn't reflect the changes made by the
