When I copy a chart to the Clipboard, i.e.
Image img = new Bitmap( chartControl.Width, chartControl.Height );
chartControl.Draw( img );
Clipboard.SetDataObject( img );
then paste it into another document (e.g. a PowerPoint document), the region outside the ChartArea has a dark blue color. Doesn''t seem to matter what BackColor I give the ChartControl, always comes out dark blue. The same thing basically happens if I save the image to a file, alhough the color is different depending on what app I use to view the file. Note that this doesn''t appear to happen if I print the chart via the PrintDocument.
Is this avoidable? It''s very inconvenient because that''s where the chart title is and you can''t see it.

Thanks for the information.
I have been able to reproduce the problem with copying the image to the clipboard (Saving to a image file does not have this problem in my testing - see sample linked to below)
I have asked our development team to look into this problem and we should have a solution as soon as possible.

On my machine when I click the "View Image" button after clicking "Export Image" button, the Windows Picture Fax Viewer comes up with the image, and region outside the "ChartArea", i.e. the region where the chart title is, is colored light blue although the color of this area in the chart control when the app is running is beige. Isn''t that what you see.

I tried opening the saved image with Windows Fax Photo Viewer and 602 Photo and it appears fine. However, when I open it in MSPaint, it has a black background. Something is wrong with the colors exported. I will update you as soon as I know what is causing the problem.
