Chart Wizard for End-Users

  • 2 minutes to read


This documentation topic describes legacy functionality. We no longer develop new features for the Chart Wizard and suggest that you use the Chart Designer instead. Read the WinForms Charting - New Designer blog post for more information.

This document describes how the Chart Wizard can be invoked, customized and localized.

This document consists of the following sections.

Invoke the Chart Wizard

The Chart Wizard is represented by an instance of the ChartWizard class. To specify the chart control for which the Wizard is invoked, pass it as a parameter when creating a ChartWizard class instance.

To run the Wizard, call its ChartWizard.ShowDialog method, which allows you to specify a look and feel setting for it.


For a runtime example, refer to How to: Invoke the Chart Wizard at Runtime.

Customize the Chart Wizard

You can remove or re-group any of the Wizard’s elements (groups, pages, tabs, editors, and so on). For examples which demonstrate these capabilities, see the following documents:

Localize the Chart Wizard

You can localize the Wizard, using satellite assemblies. We have a number of satellite resource assemblies that contain the localized resources for our products translated into different languages.

For a detailed, step-by-step tutorial, refer to Localizing WinForms Controls via Satellite Resource Assemblies.

For more information, refer to the Localizing WinForms Controls via Localizer Objects help topic in this documentation.
