HELLO I AM TRYING TO PLOT 10 VALUES ON A
XY-SCATTER CHART USING THE MSCHART CONTROL. I HAVE ONE FILE WITH THESE VALUES 5,10,15,20,35,65,78,96,14,79
IN A TXT FILE. I WOULD LIKE TO PLOT
5,10 AS X AND Y AS ONE DATA POINT
15,20 AS X AND Y AS ONE DATA POINT
35,65 AS X AND Y AND GO THROUGH THE FILE UNTIL I HAVE 5 DATA POINTS ON THE GRAPH. HOW CAN READ THE VALUES OF THIS FILE AND PLOT ON XY-SCATTER IT SEEMS TO BE VERY EASY TO PLOT ONE VALUE BUT HOW DO YOU PLOT TWO VALUES! hOW CAN I READ TWO VALUES.

Hi,
  I am not familiar with MSChart but
  below are the way u may read data
  from your text file, hope can help

'Code to set the data
Dim FileNo as integer
Dim YValue as string
Dim XValue as string

FileNo = FreeFile
Open [Your File Name] For Input As #FileNo  ' Open File for Input


For i = 0 to nSeries -1
   Line Input #FileNo, YValue
   Line Input #FileNo, XValue
   ' assign YValue to Y-axis and
   ' XValue to X-axis
Next

'Close file
Close #FileNo

HI TT I LIKE YOUR LINES OF CODE HOWEVER
I READ TRHOUGH THE TEXT FILE LIKE THIS

DIM X1 AS INTEGER,Y1 AS INTEGER,X2 AS INTEGER,Y2 AS INTEGER,X3 AS INTEGER,Y3 AS INTEGER,X4 AS INTEGER,Y4 AS INTEGER
FILE=FREEFILE
OPEN "C:\MYTEXT.TEXT" FOR INPUT AS FILE
DO WHILE NOT EOF(FILE)
INPUT #FILE, X1,Y1,X2,Y2,X3,Y3,X4,Y4
LOOP
CLOSE #FILE
for i = 1 to 8 step 1
mschart.data=x1
mschart.data=y1 etc!
USUALLY WHEN I ASSIGN AN ARRAY LIKE
MYARRAY(1 TO 8) AS INTEGER THEN PLOT ON MSCHART CONTROL IT WORKS FINE
MSCHART1.CHARTDATA=MYARRAY or it works
fine with
mschart.data=x1
mschart.data=y1 etc
BUT IT ONLY PLOTS 8 VARIABLES SO I GET 8 DATA POINTS WHICH IS FINE IF YOU WANT TO KNOW THE VALUES OF THE DATA YOU ENTERED BUT I WOULD LIKE X1 VERSUS Y1 AND SO ON. how can i assign variables and plot using either a picturebox control or mschart control. i really need help in the graphing section!!
thanking you in advance
