Clearing chart control

User (Legacy)

Recommended Posts

I am having problems with crosstab charts &  non-crosstab charts that use

the same chartfx control.

Here is the scenario:

The user defines charts in one module of my app.

They can add pre-defined charts to a report (Active Reports 2 Pro) that is

in a separate module of my application. (I only add a picture box, I don't

add the actual activex control. See next statement)

Since AR has on again off again issues with Chartfx, I am creating the

charts using a chartfx control that is on the form and not on the report.

Once the chart is done I then export the chart as a bitmap and then I import

the bitmap into the report.

This works great if all of the charts are non-crosstab charts. It also works

great if all of the crosstab charts for a single report are created before

any non-crosstab chart. But once non-crosstab chart is created then any

subsequent crosstab charts to not paint correctly.

Is there something that I need to do to "reset" the chart?

Here are two version of the same chart.  The file GoodCrosstab.bmp is when

the crosstab was run first. The file BadCrosstab.bmp is when the crosstab

was run after a non-crosstab.
