hi,
I have a mschart in my vb form.
I set the chart type to 2DLine.
Inside this chart,there are 3 lines where by the data is read
from the database.
During the run-time,the output is pretty good,each line is represent
with different colour.
But when I print the chart (Using a non-color printer).Then
I can't differenziate which line represent which line...
So I am wondering is there any method to represent the line in mschart
instead of color?

Thank You in advance.

Yes, there is.  Change the Style of the Pen object.
You can also change the width of the Pen - default is 40 (a bit too wide)

                MSChart1.SeriesCollection(1).Pen.Style = VtPenStyle.VtPenStyleDashed
                MSChart1.SeriesCollection(1).Pen.Width = 10


or change line style like this:

                Select Case CurSeries Mod 5
                Case 0
                    ps = VtPenStyleDashDotDot
                Case 1
                    ps = VtPenStyleSolid
                Case 2
                    ps = VtPenStyleDashed
                Case 3
                    ps = VtPenStyleDotted
                Case 4
                    ps = VtPenStyleDitted
                End Select
                MSChart1.SeriesCollection(CurSeries).Pen.Style = ps
