Another question concerning Property dialogs and series

Recommended Posts

OK,

I am now able to show the appropriate property dialog to alter chart's

appearance. What I am wondering now is if there is a property dialog that I

can ask for/use to set a particular pattern for a series. On the series tab

I can select a series and set a color, but if the user changes the scheme to

say b&w patterns, as far as I can tell there is no way through this dialog

to set a particular pattern for a given series. I know there is the

patternbar object, but I really do not want to use this and really cannot

because I never actually use/create a window for chart fx....I only use the

Paint method to have the chart draw itself inside a CDC object. I like the

feature where you can set the colors of each series...that is very useful

and helpful. Why does the series property dialog not allow you to specify a

pattern? Thank you for your time.

Right. Changing the pattern is not part of the functionality of this dialog.

No particular reason except "clutter" and the fact that BW patterns are not

used that frequently

We have added this in Chart FX 6 and we have re-designed these dialogs.

You will need to implement you own UI (dialog or otherwise) to change the

pattern.

OK, is there a way that I can get the bitmap pictures and their index #'s

from chartFx for each pattern/hash? When I make my own UI I'd like to be

able to show the user what the actual patterns look like. Where can/should

I look for this information? Thanks again for all of your help.

Is there a way to get chart fx to return either the windows handle for the

property dialog so that I can show this in my own dialog somehow, even

better would be to be able to get to the dialogs that represent information

for each tab. To clarify( hopefully ) I was wondering if I could either get

a windows handle or windows object for 1.) Chart Fx Properties ( tabbed

dialog ) or 2.) handle or object of a particular dialog that is shown for a

particular tab....i.e. the series dialog, or the scale dialog. I really

don't think that this would necessarily be possible but I figure that it

could not hurt to at least ask. Again I thank you for your patience and all

of you help thus far.
