How to create charts using Visual basic 2010 to Excel RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Im stuck creating a chart using VB2010 in excel. 

    I'm trying to create 2 "xlXYScattercharts " :-

    (1) Distance (X-axis) Vs Speed (Y-axis)

    (2) distance  (X-axis) Vs time(Y-axis)

    I managed to export the cells values into excel but i still stuck in getting the charts.

    I hope someone could help me out on the codes.

    Thank you very much

    The Codes as follows:-

    Imports System.Data
    Imports System.Data.OleDb
    Imports excel = Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel

    Public Class Form1

        Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load

        End Sub
        Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
            Dim xa As New excel.Application
            Dim wb As excel.Workbook
            Dim ws As excel.Worksheet
            Dim time As Integer
            Dim speed As Integer
            Dim distance As Integer
            Dim n As Integer
            Dim gridcount As Integer
            Dim RNG As excel.Range

            Dim j As Integer

            Dim excel As New excel.Application

            n = 0
            time = 0
            speed = 0
            distance = 0
            gridcount = 0

            If n < 5 Then
                time = time + 1
                speed = speed + 5
                distance = distance + 10
                n = n + 1
                Me.DataGridView1.Rows.Add(time, speed, distance)

                GoTo start
                GoTo next1

            End If


            wb = xa.Workbooks.Add
            ws = wb.Worksheets("sheet1")

            xa.Visible = True

            'Adding header details to excel cells

            ws.Cells(2, 2) = DataGridView1.Columns(0).HeaderText
            ws.Cells(2, 3) = DataGridView1.Columns(1).HeaderText
            ws.Cells(2, 4) = DataGridView1.Columns(2).HeaderText

            With ws.Range("A2", "D3")
                .Font.Bold = True

            End With

            ' AutoFit columns A:D.
            Rng = ws.Range("A1", "D1")

            'export datagridview date to excel cells

            For i As Integer = 0 To DataGridView1.Rows.Count - 1
                For j = 0 To DataGridView1.ColumnCount - 1

                    ws.Cells(2 + (i + 1), 1 + (j + 1)) = DataGridView1(j, i).Value
                    ws.Cells(2 + (i + 1), 1 + (j + 1)) = DataGridView1(j, i).Value


            ' making charts

            Dim chartPage As excel.Chart
            Dim xlCharts As excel.ChartObjects
            Dim Chart As excel.ChartObject
            Dim chartRange As excel.Range

            xlCharts = ws.ChartObjects
            Chart = xlCharts.Add(50, 100, 300, 250)
            chartPage = Chart.Chart
            chartRange = ws.Range("c3", "d7")
            chartPage.ChartType = excel.XlChartType.xlColumnClustered

            ws = Nothing : wb = Nothing : xa = Nothing

        End Sub
