Using TchartPro, How do I turn-off the 3d feature in the chart?

I am using Tchart Pro v6.01 with Delphi 7.  I have an application where I display measurement data in a chart using a point series.  The graph, legend, etc look and work great.  I've implemented scrolling and zooming.  What I am getting that I do NOT want is: the chart converts to 3-d when I right-click the mouse.  I wouldn't mind so much that it converts to 3-d but I can't undo it.  Once it displays in 3-d, I don't know what I use to get it to go back to 2-d.  When using edit chart, I go to chart tab|3d tab and uncheck '3 dimensions'.  Also, on Chart tab|Axis tab|Scales tab the visible check box is unchecked when the Depth Axis is selected.  I'm not sure what else to do to suppress the 3d feature.  Any suggestions?

Try this:

procedure TForm1.Chart1MouseUp(Sender: TObject; Button: TMouseButton;
  Shift: TShiftState; X, Y: Integer);
begin
if button=mbRight then ShowMessage('acuma');
Chart1.View3D:=false;
end;

Or try on another event cause it seems that on Rightclick it does not react good.
Try onDblClick
DBChart1.View3d:=not DBChart1.View3D;

This one transforms from 3d to flat and from flat to 3d

Actually it works with both events. My mistake.
 So you can do it like this finally:

procedure TForm1.DBChart1MouseUp(Sender: TObject; Button: TMouseButton;
  Shift: TShiftState; X, Y: Integer);
begin
if button=mbRight then DBChart1.View3D:=false;
end;

and from now on if you rightclick on the chart it will turn to 2D (if it's 3D).
