Fast Graphs WITHOUT an ActiveX / OCX Control

Many business applications need graph functions, but almost all third party graph packages out there are heavy .OCX files which can easily get bigger than one megabyte. This was the reason why I developed the included code which draws a graph.

- Size less than 10kb
- FAST. The graph function has no OCX overhead and no DLL calls
- The source code is included so you can customize the code as you want

The only type of graph supported is line-2d. This mode should be enough for analysis programs, monitoring programs. I suggest you take a look at frmMain_Load to learn how to use the routines. Also, I supplied the sub "CreateNewGraphStandard" where you can also see how to set the important fields.

If you have any comments, bug reports, questions, problems or feedback feel free to email me at!

This code was written for the VB contest. This code may be used free, but I would be happy if you could drop me a line if you like it and if you use it :-)

      Hi Felix, That's a lot of code. I've just stumbled across this and it may be what I'm looking for. I'll get back to you once I've gone over the code to see if it will work for me. Best Rgds, 22Pom
