Charting in Crystal Report IX
I am working on a report with charts. What is the difference in Detail View as opposed to Preview mode WHEN editing. It seem that when I make an edit to the chart in detail view, it changes it when I preview and vis-versa. For instance, in Detail View it looks a lot different than in Preview. Its not retaining the edits I make.
In Detail View (or Design mode) it shows the generalized view of the chart according to the fields selected in the chart.
Whereas in Preview mode it shows the chart after fetching the data in the chart. Hence the design mode looks different than preview mode.
Also if the changes are not retained please go to char menu and click on "Apply Changes to All Charts".
Hope this answers your query.
