MSChart sample

I am trying to use the MSChart control in my VC project. It is difficult for me to start as there are no sample source code in the help file. May I know anyone out there can give me a sample of how to plot a line graph with two series of data? For example, I have income and expense for a company for years 1997, 1998, 1999. I would like to have two lines on the graph, one showing the income and the other line show the expense.
Thank you very much for your help in advance. :) Cheers!

Hi tszwang,

Do you have problems inserting the MSChart control in your project, or with using the control?

Assuming that you have already added MS Chart control in your dialog/formview, you have to do this:

First you have to select the row and column in which you have to set the data. Here is an example:

for(short i = 1; i <= m_chart.GetRowCount(); i++)
     for(short j = 1; j <= m_chart.GetColumnCount(); j++)
          strValue.Format("%d", j * 5);

Here, m_chart is the member variable for the chart control.

Hope this helps. If you have further questions, feel free to ask.

Suppose you have added the chart control to CFormView. In OnInitialUpdate() add the following:

m_chart.SetColumnCount(3);  // No of columns
m_chart.SetRowCount(2);     // No of rows

This will give you a chart with 3 columns and 2 rows. To set data first select row and column and then set data. For example,

m_chart.SetData("20");  // R1C1 = 20

m_chart.SetData("40");  // R2C2 = 40

m_chart.SetData("60");  // R1C3 = 60
