_screen.system.drawing "unknown member"

Just beginning to try and implement foxcharts.  Yesterday it worked today error message.  Simple placement of vcx or ? 

Since any newbie could/might run into this I am willing to look crazy and ask. (if this is the wrong place to ask this question, please advise)

When trying to run a form with chart container on it.. the Message "Unknown member system" shows up.  Using debug it shows _screen.system.drawing as the culprit.  Same form worked last night before going home :o) but today it wont work.

gdiplusx.vcx and foxcharts.vcx are both in the path.

Any ideas? Thanks

Hi wbstrider,

Try running 'System.app' or 'System.prg' at some point before you call the form. Should only have to run it once. Usually from a main or setup prg.

I believe FoxCharts comes with a 'System.Somthing' file. If not, you can get it from the gdiPlusX project.

Thanks, it works!

Running the system.app file was a miner detail I overlooked.!
