Series Legend Box in VB

User (Legacy)

Recommended Posts

I'm displaying a chart with a series legend box whose .Docked property is

set to TGFP_FLOAT. The form that the chart is on is being shown as modal in

VB (it's a pop-up from another screen). When I run the application in the

VB IDE, everything is fine. When I compile the app and run it, everything

displays correctly, but if I try to click on the legend to move it, the

computer just beeps. If I hide the legend (using the toolbar) and then

re-display it, everything is fine and I can click on the legend box to move

it (just like in the IDE). Any ideas on what's going on here? Thanks,

Sean Carpenter

I understand that, and that's what I was afraid of.  I got around it by not

showing the legend box until the Form_Activate event. My bigger concern is

that this is the second problem I've had with ChartFX Client/Server that

doesn't appear in the IDE but does when compiled. I know some of it may be

VB related, but it doesn't give me a great feeling about the OCX. In this

same project we use three other 3rd party OCXs and haven't experienced this

difference in behavior with any of them.
