RE: Metafile

Good morning,

There is not a "GetAsMetafile" routine, the property we support is


Picture1.Picture = ChartFX1.GetPicture CHART_METAFILE

which save a chart as a metafile.

Following your phone call you already save the chart as a metafile, and now you are using a 3rd party component to built that Metafile into your .pdf file. Since ChartFX Client Server already did its part which was saving your chart as a metafile, I recommend to call your other 3rd party product seller and ask how that component works and the proper code to accomplish what you need.

Wish to export a chart made with chartfx to a component that will

create a pdf file. The pdf code is:

"1. Create a TWPOImage

2. Assign the metafile to it.

I think the code was

Image.Picture.Assign( YourChart.GetAsMetafile );

// "YourChart" is a TChart object !

3. insert it as usual"

What is the GetAsMetafile routine?
