Displaying a Chart in a User Form

Oddly, Excel provides no direct way to display a chart in a UserForm. You can, of course, copy the chart and paste it to the Picture property of an Image control, but this creates a static image of the chart, so it won't display any changes that are made to the chart.

This section describes a technique to display a chart in a UserForm. Figure 15-25 shows a UserForm with a chart displayed in an Image object. The chart actually resides on a worksheet, and the UserForm always displays the current chart. This technique works by copying the chart to a temporary graphics file and then using the LoadPicture function to specify that file for the Image control's Picture property.
