Hello Experts,

I have a net4 chart named chart_1.

I need vb code to  add title and sub title to chart_1

How do I
- specify the text
- center it
- font Ariel
- size 12
- Bold
- color black

I need code for both the title and the sub title (appears below title)

Thank you very much.

Hi CGee,

something like this oughta get you off in the right direction:
                ' not sure if titles collection is a zero based index 
                If Chart1.Titles(1) IsNot Nothing Then
                  ' specify the text
                  Chart1.Titles(1).Text = FormatDateTime(Date.Now, DateFormat.LongDate)
                  ' center it
                  Chart1.Titles(1).Alignment = Drawing.ContentAlignment.TopCenter
                  ' font Ariel, size 12, Bold
                  Chart1.Titles(1).Font = New System.Drawing.Font("Ariel", 12, Drawing.FontStyle.Bold, Chart1.Titles(1).Font.Unit)
                  ' color black
                  Chart1.Titles(1).ForeColor = Drawing.Color.Black
                  
                End If
                
                ' should be the same for subtitle except increment the index e.g., Chart1.Titles(2)

Open in new window

Respectfully yours,
Alan

Great, thanks so much, works great.  I had to add the title to the chart, then it work.

Chart_1.Titles.Add(0)
            Chart_1.Titles(0).Text = "Main Title"
            Chart_1.Titles(0).Alignment = Drawing.ContentAlignment.TopCenter
            Chart_1.Titles(0).Font = New System.Drawing.Font("Ariel", 12, Drawing.FontStyle.Bold, Chart_1.Titles(0).Font.Unit)
            Chart_1.Titles(0).ForeColor = Drawing.Color.Black

            Chart_1.Titles.Add(1)
            Chart_1.Titles(1).Text = "Subtitle"
            Chart_1.Titles(1).Alignment = Drawing.ContentAlignment.TopCenter
            Chart_1.Titles(1).Font = New System.Drawing.Font("Ariel", 8, Drawing.FontStyle.Bold, Chart_1.Titles(0).Font.Unit)
            Chart_1.Titles(1).ForeColor = Drawing.Color.Black
