PrintDialog.PrintVisual() and Chart.UseEffects


Recommended Posts

I could not get my chart to print. I narrowed it down to the Chart.UseEffects property. In the following, when UseEffects is false, the chart does not print. When UseEffects is true, the chart prints.

using System;

using System.Windows;

using System.Windows.Controls;

using System.Windows.Input;

using ChartFX.WPF;

class Program



  static void Main(string[] args)


  bool isPrintSuccessful = false;

  Window w = new Window();

  Chart c = new Chart() { UseEffects = isPrintSuccessful };

  w.Content = c;

  // ctrl-p to print

  w.CommandBindings.Add(new CommandBinding(ApplicationCommands.Print, OnPrint));

  new Application().Run(w);


  static void OnPrint(object sender, EventArgs e)


  PrintDialog dlg = new PrintDialog();

  if (dlg.ShowDialog().Value)

  dlg.PrintVisual(sender as Window, "My Chart");
