Hello experts ,

i use chart object in access .I have succesfully integrated it into my form but i have the following issue: The object is set to "locked" but it is still clicable and when i click on it a new window opens and i can edit there the options (legend graph etc).I want my form only to show this control and noone to edit it( either if the graph is clicked) .i want in simple words something like an "image" that wont be able to be edited in the form but will be updated after the data changes.Is that possible ?

Thank you!

I see that you have tagged this for Access 2010.  I do not have that.  

If I have a chart on a form I put in the "Click" event and the "doubleclick" event of the chart control a "setfocus" to another control such as a button.

Me.MyButtonName.Setfocus

This stops it for me in for example access 2003.

Assuming you do not have a special event for right clicks, this would be a hack solution.

You can trap the mouse event


Private Sub chart_MouseUp(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)

   Select Case Button
           
      Case 2 ' right click
              
       'setfocus elsewhere
       
    End Select

End Sub


End Sub

Open in new window
