I'll try to explain this as well as I can.

I have a workbook with few sheets holding a GridControl. Each sheet has an embedded chart control on it. ChartLegend is on the left hand side of the ChartArea and chart itself is on the right of the ChartArea. When I save this to Excel or PDF, I export chart as image.

My problem is: Grid saves fine, as well as the chart on the visible sheet. Everything on this sheet/page is saved correctly.

On other invisible sheets, images of charts are not saved as the chart appears on its sheet. Chart is stretched over the whole chart area and ChartLengend is squeezed on the left hand side and totally unreadable.

If I have other sheet visible, the same thing. It is saved correctly and other sheets have the same issue.

I believe it has to do with chart being visible/invisible in the moment of saving.

I'd appreciate somebody letting me know if there is a work around this issue.

Hi Samko,

Sorry for the delay in responding.

I am not able to reproduce the issue that you mentioned here. I have created a simple sample and exporting a chart as an image to excel with multi sheet. Here the chart is not stretched. Please refer the below code snippet:

Image img = new Bitmap(this.chartControl1.Width, this.chartControl1.Height);
//Insert Image
mySheet.Pictures.AddPicture(1, 1, img);

Here is the sample for your reference:


Please have a look at the above sample and if still the issue exists, could you please try reproducing it in the above sample and send us the modified sample so that we could sort out the cause of the issue and provide you a solution?

Thanks for responding. I don't think that you sample exactly matches my problem. Your chart is already visible and rendered. You're just creating multi sheet workbook and then put the visible chart in every sheet.

What I have is multi sheet workbook with chart in each of the sheets. Only one is visible at the time. So when I save my workbook to Excel, only visible sheet saves its chart correctly. Other charts on invisible sheets are as per images in my first message.

Please try this and let me know. I'd appreciate it a lot.

Hi Samko,

Here is the simple example.

Charts are created on all three sheets. But when I save it to the Excel file as an image, legend is gone, title is gone, size of the image is not the same as the size of the actual chart control.

I'd appreciate your help.

Hi Samko,

Sorry for the delay in responding.

I am able to see the issue. But the issue is reproduced not because of XlsIO. By default the image can be rendered like that. I have save the image separately and check it. It looks different from the chartcontrol. This happens the problem.

Here is the screenshot:


Please try to save the image and check and let me know if you have any other concerns.

Thanks for reply.

I'm seeing exactly the same image.

How can I work around it to be able to save it as it shows? I need my legend to be displayed outside the chart at the certain position and chart area to be sized as seen in the program when created and before the saving it to the file.

I appreciate your help.
