i've been using the foxcharts beta v .49.5 for several months without any issues, it's Awesome!!  however, a user has reported that it does not work in Windows 7.  there are no errors, it just shows a blank page with *no* graphic.  you get the standard foxpro image object with the big X.

I have not converted to the RC of FoxCharts yet, so was wondering if anyone has seen this issue or can confirm it's been fixed.

Hi JC,

Are you using SP2 ?
I know that some people reported similar issues with the PictureVal property of the image control, and after installing SP2 all went good.

Another option is to use another rendering mode.
FOxCharts can use Images saved in temporary files.
It works nice, but may also cost performance.

Try the following:
Thisform.FoxCharts1.ChartsCanvas.RenderMode = 1

before calling the DrawChart() method

But I reaffirm that the best option may be to upgrade to SP2.

Hope this helps !
