Charting in VB2005

P: n/a
Hi,
I know this ng isn't intended for VB2005 Beta, but I still hope for some
good advice.

Does anyone know of a chart control that works in the VB2005 beta? I've
tried some working with VS2002/3 and some from the good ol' VB6 but they
don't work in the beta :(

Any help appreciated!

I don't know which of them you already tested:

MSChart (from VB6).

Visual Basic .NET Resource Kit
<URL:http://msdn.microsoft.com/vbasic/vbrkit/>

Includes the following chart components:

ComponentOne Chart for .NET
<URL:http://www.componentone.com/products.aspx?ProductCode=1&ProductID=21>

Dundas Chart for .NET
<URL:http://www.dundas.com/Charting/Gallery/Gallery.aspx>

Remember that beta software is not intended for production use.

Our presently shipping release of Dundas Chart for .NET, Version 4.1,
has most features working with VS2005 however there are some design
time issues. These are due to changes to VS interfaces and some .net
framework components are no longer exposed by VS at design time.

Our next release of Dundas Chart for .NET, Version 4.5, will work with
VS2005 to a much greater extent. The Web control has no known issues,
however, there remains one known design time issue with our Windows
Forms control. Our chart is continually being updated and any VS2005
issue will be addressed and be VS2005 compliant by the time VS2005 is
released to the public.

For those unaware of our product support offerings, anyone who has
purchased our Chart Subscription package is entitled to each chart
update as it is released. Typically, we release 4 times per year with
one major and 3 minor releases. With the subscription package you will
always be up to date and are rewarded by many new features and fixes.
Thanks

Hi Kejpa,
TChart (v5 & .NET)


The Evaluation and Release versions of the TeeChart for .Net component
currently available from www.steema.com will run in the VS2005 beta 1
with a small modification; when running a vb.net winform with an empty
chart dropped onto it you will receive the following error:

NullReferenceExceptioin was unhandled

This error is due to changes made to the handling of designtime
serialisation visibility in the VS2005 beta and can be remedied within
the Solution Explorer: click on the "Show All Files" button and open
the child node of the Form.vb file called called Form1.Designer.vb and
comment out the following line in the InitializeComponent() method:

Me.TChart1.Chart = CType(resources.GetObject("TChart1.Chart"),
Steema.TeeChart.Chart)

You will now be able to run the empty chart. To avoid similar issues in
the VS2005 beta I recommend that you add TeeChart objects to your Chart
at runtime rather than at designtime, e.g.

Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As
System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
Dim Bar1 As New Steema.TeeChart.Styles.Bar(TChart1.Chart)
Bar1.FillSampleValues()
End Sub

These issues will be seamlessly solved in the upcoming TeeChart for
..NET version 2, a beta version of which will become available very
soon.

The currently available version of the TeeChart Pro ActiveX Control,
version 7, works without any issues whatsoever in the VS2005 beta 1.
Again, running a vb.net winform with an empty chart dropped onto it you
will give you no errors; adding objects to it either at designtime or
runtime does not present any problems, e.g.

Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As
System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
AxTChart1.AddSeries(TeeChart.ESeriesClass.scBar)
AxTChart1.Series(0).FillSampleValues(10)
End Sub
