Does VB6 have any feature that allows it to plot points and maybe lines in a 3 dimensional axis? I tried using the MS Charts component but it only allows up to 2D. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

  • The "3D" look of charts can be used in vb6 by making use of the excel API and chart modules (2003 versions and up only, Excel 11 -->). The coding behind it is however somewhat involved, I suggest you read up on this before attempting to use it. Read More

Yes, I think "real" 3D charts are a bit of a problem. I thought that MSChart could do them, but it seems that the "3D" charts it supports don't have 3 axes. They're just normal 2D (X/Y) charts with a pseudo-3D appearance showing a bit of depth to enhance the appearance . You may need to use some third party control.

Thanks for the idea but I couldn't find any resources regarding that. I instead made use of several line controls and modified their x,y,left and top to make them act like lines. By any chance, is there a 3d graph control in VB 2010? I haven't fully explored it yet. Thanks.
