copied and printed TeeChart colors

Post by Innervations » Tue Feb 26, 2019 12:04 pm

In my current application when I copy:
Private Sub ButtonCopyGraph_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles ButtonCopyGraph.Click
Dim JPEGf As Steema.TeeChart.Export.JPEGFormat = MainForm.TChartBMS.Export.Image.JPEG
JPEGf.Height = 500
JPEGf.Width = 700
JPEGf.GrayScale = False
JPEGf.Quality = 100
JPEGf.CopyToClipboard()
End Sub

The color of the chart background is black even though displayed in my application it is a light cream color. Can anyway suggest a fix so that the exported image colors match the displayed chart?

Thanks
Rob

Hello Rob,

changing the BufferStyle just before export should work for you per this example here.

Thanks Chris. I got the save to clipboard function to work but had to change to PNG format. Your tip about BufferStyle worked!

Here is my code:
Private Sub ButtonCopyGraph_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles ButtonCopyGraph.Click
Dim PNG As Steema.TeeChart.Export.PNGFormat

MainForm.TChartBMS.Graphics3D.BufferStyle = Steema.TeeChart.Drawing.BufferStyle.None
PNG = MainForm.TChartBMS.Export.Image.PNG
PNG.Height = 1000
PNG.Width = 1500
PNG.GrayScale = False
PNG.CopyToClipboard()
End Sub
