Assembly: Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel (in Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.dll)
The following properties for returning a Chart object are described in this section:
Use the Chart property to return a Chart object that represents the chart contained in a ChartObject object.
The Charts collection contains a Chart object for each chart sheet in a workbook. Use Charts(index), where index is the chart-sheet index number or name, to return a single Chart object.
The chart index number represents the position of the chart sheet on the workbook tab bar. All chart sheets are included in the index count, even if they’re hidden. The chart sheet name is shown on the workbook tab for the chart. You can use the Name property to set or return the chart name.
The Chart object is also a member of the Sheets collection. The Sheets collection contains all the sheets in the workbook (both chart sheets and worksheets). Use Sheets(index), where index is the sheet index number or name, to return a single sheet.
When a chart is the active object, you can use the ActiveChart property to refer to it. A chart sheet is active if the user has selected it or it’s been activated with the Activate method.
An embedded chart is active if the user has selected it or the ChartObject object that it’s contained in has been activated with the Activate method.
When a chart sheet is the active sheet, you can use the ActiveSheet property to refer to it.
