User (Legacy) Posted April 23, 2003 Report Share Posted April 23, 2003 I am considering using ChartFX as a control in Active Reports 2.0, as the image quality of the printed chart looks much cleaner (i.e. smooth edges) than either Olectra we're currently using, and also an upgrade to ComponentOne Chart 8. However, in testing, I have the following problem: When I first draw the ActiveX control on a new Active Reports designer, and then right-click and view the properties, everything looks fine. If I close the Active Report designer and then re-open it, the property pages for the chart only contains 4 tabs: General, Series, Axes, 3D. Moreover, attempting to change certain properties in the VB properties window, or in code, results in an invalid property value error (i.e. NSeries is set at 2 and can't be changed). This appears to be a conflict with Active Reports, as using the chart on a form in the same project does not reproduce the behaviour. Also, when choosing a control, the choice is different on a form vs. an ActiveReport: ActiveReports designer: ChartFX IE 2000 DTC for ASP ChartFX Client Server Control Form: ChartFX IE Client ChartFX Client Server Control I have both IE 2000 and an evaluation version of Client Server 5.1 on my machine. Additionally, the wizard that starts after dropping the control on the form does not appear when dropped in an Active Report. Any help would be appreciated, both with respect to the above behaviour, and if the problem can be solved, what version of ChartFX that would be appropriate to use with Active Reports as a control. I am using VB6 SP5, and Active Reports 2.0.1195. We distribute our reports as ActiveX DLLs. Regards, Brian Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
