[INFO] Minor differences between VB6 and VB.NET MSChart controls

VB Migration Partner’s support library hides most of the differences between the VB6 and the .NET versions of the MSChart control, but not all of them. In most cases the remaining differences have little or no impact on migrated programs. Here’s their complete list:

  1. The Bindings property isn’t migrated and data binding isn’t implemented in VB.NET.
  2. In VB6 you can assign a few properties of the MSChart control at design time by setting the Row and Column properties in the Property window and then assign a new value to another property. These values aren’t migrated to VB.NET.

Finally, keep in mind that you need to run the the VBMP Project Dumper add-in for VB6, which produces a dump of all the properties of all controls and forms in the current project. See this article for more information.
