Edit in Design Mode and where is the help

Post by Angelo » Fri Nov 14, 2014 8:54 pm

I installed the V2014 and noticed some issues:


I did some changes to a chart in design mode, the changes correspond to the following code:

TChart1.Panel.Gradient.Visible = False
TChart1.Walls.Back.Gradient.Visible = False

So, changing that above properties at design time, and closing the edit chart windows everything is there and fine.

Then Irun the project, create a new form with that chart dinamically, but I see that the chart loosed the changes I did at design mode. If I stop my project, returning to design mode, the form with that chart did loose the changes also.

The workaround for the behavior was to write the above code.




Another issue: where is the help file for the 2014 version ? When I press F1, my Vb6 now says that it can not find the teechartx2014.hlp file. I did seach the computer and it is not anywhere.

PS: VB6 and Windows XP SP3.


Regards,

Angelo

You are right. I've added it to the public tracker:
http://bugs.teechart.net/show_bug.cgi?id=1015

From v2014 we removed the version number from the help files so it's now called TeeChartX.hlp. Find it at the "Docs" folder inside your TeeChart ActiveX installation path.
You can also manually open the TeeChartxTutorials.chm file from Windows Explorer.

Yeray.

The solution to manually open the .hlp file is very uncomfortable, at least for me. I was used to press F1 inside VB6 IDE to open the exact help page for the teechart command I would like to know about.

I tried to fix this issue making a copy of the TeechartX.hlp and rename this copy to TeechartX2014.hlp, but VB6 still does not find it. Where does the hlp file should be in order to VB6 to find it ?

I've tried it with the v2014.0.0.2 just published and it seems to work fine for me here.
Could you please give it a try?
What exact error message are you getting, if still getting any?

Note in Windows 8.1 I had to install WinHlp32 for Win 8.1.
