Parameters

source
Type: System.Object

The range that contains the source data for the new chart. If this argument is omitted, Microsoft Office Excel edits the active chart sheet or the selected chart on the active worksheet.

gallery
Type: System.Object

The chart type.

format
Type: System.Object

The option number for the built-in autoformats. Can be a number from 1 through 10, depending on the gallery type. If this argument is omitted, Microsoft Office Excel chooses a default value based on the gallery type and data source.

plotBy

Specifies whether the data for each series is in rows or columns. Can be one of the following XlRowCol constants: xlRows or xlColumns.

categoryLabels
Type: System.Object

An integer specifying the number of rows or columns within the source range that contain category labels. Legal values are from 0 (zero) through one less than the maximum number of the corresponding categories or series.

seriesLabels
Type: System.Object

The number of rows or columns within the source range that contain series labels. Legal values are from 0 (zero) through one less than the maximum number of the corresponding categories or series.

hasLegend
Type: System.Object

true to include a legend.

title
Type: System.Object

The chart title text.

categoryTitle
Type: System.Object

The category axis title text.

valueTitle
Type: System.Object

The value axis title text

extraTitle
Type: System.Object

The series axis title for 3-D charts or the second value axis title for 2-D charts.

You can use this method to quickly format a Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.ChartSheetBase without setting all the individual properties. This method is non-interactive, and it changes only the specified properties.

If Source is omitted and either the selection is not an embedded chart on the active worksheet or the active sheet is not an existing chart, this method fails and an error occurs.

Optional Parameters

For information on optional parameters, see Optional Parameters in Office Solutions.

The following code example uses the ChartWizard method to set the data source and the chart type of the current Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.ChartSheetBase.

private void ModifyChartSheet()
{
    Globals.Sheet1.Range["A1", "A5"].Value2 = 22;
    Globals.Sheet1.Range["B1", "B5"].Value2 = 55;

    this.ChartWizard(Globals.Sheet1.Range["A1", "B5"],
        Excel.XlChartType.xl3DColumn,false,
        "Revised chart");
}
