export chart properties to a stream?


Recommended Posts

I want to save changed chart properties to a text stream (in xml format) and then put it in a database. According to the help I should use a System.IO.Stream as argument, but that's a .NET object. So far I was only able to save the props to a file, but that is (for several reasons) not what I want.

Is there a way to get the props in xml format in memory, without writing them out to a file first?

The Export method receives a VARIANT as the second parameter, if you pass a variant with type VT_STREAM and containing a COM IStream implementation we will write into it.

In C++ building this VARIANT should be easy, it might not be as easy in other languages (e.g. VB)
