Problems with Copy-Paste the whole chart.

Post by bairog » Mon Oct 12, 2020 9:57 am

Hello.
I have a WinForms project that targets .NET Framework 4.8. And I'm trying to Copy-Paste (Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V in form designer) the whole chart (the original chart can be placed on the same form or even on another form in my project).
I expect to have fully independent chart that copies all properties values (as well all series proeperties values) from the original chart.
But in fact it works unpredictably: sometimes the original chart disappears, sometime some (or even all) series on the original disappears. Sometimes all series are visualy copied to a copy chart but when I try to change some properties on copy chart/copy series - they are actually changed for the original chart/original series.
So is that a bug? How can I copy the whole chart with all it's propeties, series and series properties?
Thanl you.

Hello,

Yes, you can copy an entire chart with all its properties and so forth using the native chart templates (*.ten) - there's an example of how to do this in the Feature Demo of our GitHub examples (here):

We haven't had any requests to ensure that the above functionality should work at DesignTime on a Windows Forms using cut-and-paste, so it's not really a functionality we have looked into. We can look into it of course - could you be so kind as to send us a project (or two) with which we can reproduce your problem here?

Just created new WinForms (.NET Framework) application, added Steema.TeeChart.NET nuget package, placed TСhart on form (Dock = Top) and added pie chart on it. When I Ctrl+С / Ctrl+V that chart on the same form it looks like:

pie1 series is moved to a new chart, not copied to it.

Yes, I can see what you mean - this is because you are copying the TChart object and not the Series object. I'm not sure how this is supposed to work in the Visual Studio Designer, but I will look into it further.

In the meantime, you will be able to use the native template files as I suggested to you in my first reply.

Any updates on this? It's a real pain to create similar complex charts from scratch without be able to simply copy them..

You don't have to create them from scratch, as I mentioned, you can use the TeeChart native template files. To make it clear, please find a short screenshot gif I made to show you what I mean:
