Please clarify:

1. If you are not using the standard .NET Microsoft Chart control: what you are using ?

2. Are you saying that you have a TextBox on a Form, and, after some event: you want that text to be overlaid on top of the chart at some specific position ?

3. Are you saying you want the end-user of your application to create (or edit the attributes of) richly-styled text (forecolor, background-color, font) while your program is running, and then drag-and-drop this richly-styled text (or plain text) to wherever they want to on the Chart ? While I seriously doubt this is what you want to do: the important thing is for you to clarify exactly what it is you want to do.


What have you tried so far ? Show us some code, please.

HI BillWoodruff

I am using Arction Lightning chart control. I need to draw a text editor on my chart control in which user can type the text. Its similar to the tool called Text Editor of 'MS Office'.

You are using a commerical third-party control from Arction (a very expensive control).

Why aren't you sending this question to Arction technical support ?

I am still not clear what you are trying to do, here.

Usually questions involving third-party commercial controls are not answered here, unless you get lucky, and someone else here is using the same control.
