the examples I received with my purchase of you product uses
'If Me.IsDesignMode Then' in the VB versions when dealing with the Timer.
When I try to check it out I see it is in com.quinncurtis.chart2dnet.ChartView.IsDesignMode().

The definition I get is "Specifies if the current instance is in design mode. "

What does design mode imply?

Thank You

Al Schubert

When you place a control on a form in the VB IDE, you are instantiating (running the code) of the control, in "design mode". This is different than "run-time mode", where you are actually executing the program. We don't want our ChartView derived user controls exectuting real-time updates via the timer while in design mode. This can lead to errors that are hard to debug and which will prevent you from adding the control to a form. That's why you see that we use 'If Me.IsDesignMode Then' to skip real-time updates if the control is being used in "design mode".

If you want to read more about design mode vs run-time mode, just enter:

.net vb "design mode"

into google.
