I'm using VB6 SP2 and I'm trying to get an image from a Transparent Chart,

but I'm getting a black picture of the chart.

If I put a color background or an Image as a background all works fine.

The problem is, I have a transparent chart over a big image. To fix this I

set the piece of the big image as a chart fx background, but I still getting

a black Image on the LegendBox and SeriesBox and this objects don

Omar,

Make sure you have the lastest service pack for Chart FX. There was an

issue with black bitmaps when they first released version 5. (I am assuming

you are copying using the toolbar..programmatically there was no problem as

far as I recall).

This is normal, if we don't have a background then we can not draw one, we

can not see the image that is behind us in your Form. You can do this (I

have never tried it) using the Paint method instead of exporting to a

picture. You can then create a picture of your own containing the background

image and the draw the chart on top of it.
