Antialias (once again)

First I had an aliasing problem with ActiveReport. The Charts with Curved

Lines looked ugly. But it occured not only with ActiveReport. Also the

Export or when I embed OCX of ChartFX to another Applications do have the

same effect. When I print the chart directly it looks perfect. But I need

the Chart on a Report as an Image or an embeded OCX.

I think, I've found a problem! At least when exporting to a Metafile.

ChartFX is making to many nodes(points) concatenated with straight lines in

the metafile! And this looks like an aliasing.

I reduced the number of nodes with a graphic tool and set the lines to

Curved Segment and then the chart looked alright in any resolution.

Is it possible to reduce the number of points with ChartFX? And setting the

line segments from straight to curved? Maybe setting the line segment to

curved would be enought.

I attached a sample metafile, produced with VB and ChartFX

chartFx.Export CHART_METAFILE, "Sample.emf"

Thanks a lot for ANY Help!

Regards,

Erwin

So there is really no other way to get a better result?

I really need a high quality chart on a report, where the curves look like

curves. It dosen't matter as Bitmap, Metafile or ...

For any help, thank you very much!

regards,

Erwin

P.S. I've choosen ChartFX in the meaning that it is the best tool on the

market!
