Unhandled Overflow exception after zooming RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hello,

    I'm continually getting an overflow exception on a chart. I'm setting up my chart as follows:


    dataArea = InstrChart.ChartAreas.Add("Instr1");
    dataArea.AxisX.MajorGrid.Enabled = false;
    dataArea.AxisY.MajorGrid.Enabled =
    dataArea.CursorX.IsUserSelectionEnabled = true;

    I'm then adding 12 series with about 10000 points each.

    The exception occurs when I zoom down to show only 3 or 4 point per series. Immediately after I release the mouse button for a zoom I get the following exception:

    System.OverflowException was caught
      Message="Overflow error."

    I've removed all event handler for the chart with no luck in stopping zooming from eventuall causing this exception. I've set IsUserSelectionEnabled to false for the chart and done zooming from code with no luck.

    Any help on this issue would be great. Cheers.

  • Well this looks pretty hopeless since no admins have replied in about a year, but I'm getting the same exception. Any chance of a solution?

  • Bump. Is there any official support for the chart controls?

  • Disappointing, isn't it?

    On the other hand, when posting this reply MS was thoughtful enough to ask if I really wanted to send what was soon to be on a public forum over an unencrypted line...

    The exception helper indicates that this problem is in System.Drawing.dll, but that doesn't tell us how to avoid it, other than "don't zoom". It seems to occur more readily (in my case) when the range of  x data is small. Any other clues?
