I have a general question about Diagram in VC++ 2008.

If I want to draw a diagram out of a serie of numbers for the coordinates X and Y in a Diagram.
Is there any classes/ built in methods for this.

- Is this very difficult things to do in C++ ?
- Do I need any Add-In:s to C++ etc.. to be able to do this.

Thank you...

>>Is there any classes/ built in methods for this.
No

>>Is this very difficult things to do in C++ ?
Depends on your experience. What is easy for me might be very difficult for you.

>> Do I need any Add-In:s to C++ etc.. to be able to do this.
Depends on your compiler and the operating system you are using. For MS-Windows you can use win32 api graphics drawing functions. One place to start is this link.

This sounds interesting. I have looked this website out and as you say the class library is written in C#.
I have to ask to be sure. This is not something I can use in VC++ 2008 .NET Express Edition, I beleive ?

I have downloaded some sample projects and this code seems to be written in C++ so I get a little confused. :)

You might find ZedGraph useful, it's a class library written in C#.

The project's web site is here
http://zedgraph.org/wiki/index.php?title=Main_Page

And some sample projects can be downloaded here

I think there should be no problems with VC++ 2008 .NET Express. Give it a try by opening the ZedGraphSampleVC.sln (the VC ++ sample) and see how it works. The class library's code comes precompiled in the ZedGraph.dll (a dynamic link library) - so you need to add that file as a reference in your VC++ projects that use the ZedGraph. In the sample project this reference already exists (see Project/Properties/Common Properties/References).

The documentation for the library is available here
http://zedgraph.sourceforge.net/documentation/default.html

and then there is a dedicated user forum in here (seems to be quite active)

hi, if you want to draw typical mathematical diagrams, I would suggest c++ interface of gnuplot by Robert. This is great for scientific publications, also able to create TeX code.
krs,

Yes, it worked to open it in VC++. I added this reference and I will see what I can do.
Thank you !

I am trying to add this ZedGraphControl to my Form. I have add this file as a reference like described above.
What I wonder now. Is it possible to "Drag and Drop" this GraphControl to my form as you do with Ex: a "textBox" or do I have to write all the code manually in the CodeView ?

However I cant find "ZedGraphControl" anywhere to drag and drop this control.
I wonder if and how this could be possible to do ?

Open Tools/Choose Toolbox Items/.NET Framework Components
Click Browse and select the component .dll. Click OK and the ZedGraphControl should appear in the Toolbox.

This worked great ! I have a wondering about the ZedGraph if someone knows if it is possible.
When the ZedGraph is opened as a Diagram. The Outside-Borders of the Diagram Area is White.
Is it possible to change this color to another color.
In the zedGraph control you can change BackColor and also choose a BackgroundImage but none of these 2 oppurtunities does anything to the ZedGraph-Control.
Thanks...

I suggest you post strictly ZedGraph related questions to the dedicated help forum in
