Don't bet on it.

M$ doesn't provide a print method.

The best you can do is Printer.PrintPicture and that gives terrible results.

Learn to write your own graph routines and you'll never use that !@#$%^ control again.

I can give you source on common graph types. Pies, Polars, Logrithmic, bars, histograms, etc. Is not hard and gives *MUCH* better results.

Your reference is basically the same method I said about printing the image of the control. However this results in terrible looking text and produces results that (to me) is unacceptable for work I'm going to turn in to a customer.

Sorry but I need some of the features with the control that you do not provide.
