Chart FX MS Office Add-on documentation

Recommended Posts

Under your Chart FX Client Server or Chart FX Internet folder (depending

which version of the MS Office add-on you installed), you should see an

"Extensions" folder containing help and samples.

A shortcut to these is also created in the "Chart FX Group" (Start menu).

I do have an Extensions folder, but it only contains an HTML file

(MSOfficeAddOnIE.htm) and a subfolter with supporting image files. I can't

find any help or sample files.

You must be referring to the add-on for Chart FX Internet.

This one doesn't have documentation or samples as there is no API. After

installation, the Copy-To Office Application option will be enabled in your

client control, when you select it, the Add-on is downloaded to the client

machine and a copy of the chart is placed in the clipboard.

Do you have any specific question about the add-on ? What exactly were you

looking for in the documentation ?

Yes, I am referring to Chart FX Internet, although I can't find the samples

you're referring to in the ChartFX Client Server download either. The

ChartFX Client Server help file (chartfx_mso_ext.chm) really doesn't provide

much guidance.

There are a number of questions for this product:

1. What is the ASP syntax?

2. Is there a sample file available?

3. Assume that the user must download an additional ActiveX control?

4. Does the drill-down capability work once the chart is embedded in the

document (i.e., does a browser window open when drilling down from the

Office document?)

5. Can the chart be embedded into an office document thru ASP? If so, how?

The samples and help file I referred to are for Chart FX client Server only.

They are located under the Chart FX client Server folder, a sub-folder

called "Extensions" the File you mentioned "chartfx_mso_ext.chm" provides

the documentation while the "sample" folder contains a working sample in VB

that uses OLE Automation to create a WORD document with a chart FX chart

embedded into it.

1) There is no ASP syntax. You don't use this component in the server. It is

used in the client.

2) There is no sample because there is no code to write, all you need to do

is install it and the Copy-To Office Application option will automatically

be enabled for your clients.

3) The user downloads the add-on, which is not an ActiveX control, it is an

OLE server component. The component is automatically downloaded when the

user selects Copy-To Office Application for the first time.

4) No. The drilldown capabilities only work when the ActiveX component is

embedded in the browser.

I hope this makes it clear on how the Office Add-on component works.

Thanks for the overview.

What would cause the "Copy to Office Application" option to be disabled at

the client? All of the other toolbar options are avaiable.

Check the CfxSrv.Ini (in your server), there should be a reference there to

the MS Office add-on cabinet, if there isn't, there was a problem with the

installation most likely caused by lack of permissions to modify this file

when the installation runs.

If you can't find this entry, run the installation program again (for the

internet add-on) in your server making sure you have all the necessary

permissions.
