Delphi5 and GetExternalData ...

User (Legacy)

Recommended Posts

I'm developing my application in Delphi 5 and I downloaded the ChartFx 

98 trial version. When I use the GetExternalData function, at compiling

time, this error is showing:

[Error] rGraf001.pas(42): There is no overloaded version of

'GetExternalData' that can be called with these arguments

The version of ChartFx is : Chart Fx 98 32-Bit

My development tool is : Delphi 5.0 Build 6.18 Update Pack 1

The code for this operation is:


rFileName : TCfxDataFile;


rFileName := nil;


rFileName := TCfxDataFile.Create(self);

rFileName.FileName := 'v:\data\fce.txt';






The same routine in Visual Basic 6 is executing without problems.
