Exporting a graph to a native format
Exporting to the native format without the data is useful if you want to perform further customizations on a graph in the TeeChart Office application. Visit the following location in your Web browser, http://www.steema.com/products/teechart/office/overview.html, to get more information on the TeeChart Office application.
- Right-click in the graph window and click Export.
Click the Native tab.
- Uncheck the Include Series data check box if you want to have only the graph definitions written to the output file, without the data.
- Use the Format drop-down list to choose between binary and text format.
- Click the Save button.
Navigate to the location you want to save to, type a filename, then click Save.
The native data format of the graph is contained in a *.tee file, which can be either binary or text. The binary files are smaller, but the text files are humanreadable.
- Click Close.
You can also export the graph with Graph Manager. Right-click on the graph, choose Export from the list, then follow steps 2–7 above.
