Re: Bug with floating legend box

User (Legacy)

Recommended Posts

I'm experiencing another problem with floating legends (and other floating 

objects, i.e. the Data Editor).

When a legend box or other object is floating, and you set the .Left and

.Top properties of the SerLegendBoxObj, and then immediately retrieve them,

the values that are returned are different from the values you just set.

The VB6 program attached will reproduce this behavior.

The .Left and .Top properties work fine if the legend is fixed, rather than

floating (which isn't an option for the Data Editor object).
