    Hi all,
    I'm facing a breaking change while trying to upgrade from AR12 to AR15: I checked the breaking changes documentation, but I could not find anything related to this, so I need support.

    ChartControl chart = GetChartControl(this);
    if (chart != null)
    chart.ExecuteAction(UICommand.Clear);

    GetChartControl is a method to retrieve the chart in the report. My issue is that ChartControl.ExecuteAction is not available anymore: how should I change my code?

    Thank you

    Hello,

    "ExecuteAction" is internal API of Chart which is not publicly exposed in the AR12 also. It is not recommended to use the internal API of the control as it can be removed without any notice. However, request to please share your requirement so that I will help you to achieve the same.

    Thanks,
    Mohit

    Hello,
    I want to open the Chart Wizard (the one that opens when the chart is dragged on the page the first time) and the Chart Customize (the one invoked by the Customize action) dialogs from my own context menu: in the previous (AR12) version I used a few ExecuteAction calls, now I was able to replace most of them (Load, Save, Reset) with my code, but I did not find a way to open the above dialogs.

    Thank you

    I have escalated this to the development team (AR-26252)and will inform you once I get any information from them,

    Hello ,

    could you please confirm that we are talking about the custom context menu for the report opened in End User Designer?
    i have doubts, since the sample of code from you, would affect the undo/redo manager of the designer control.

    Thanks,
    Sergey Romanov.

    Hello,
    Yes, I am referring to a context menu opened in the End User Designer: I have no need to support UNDO/REDO commands, but I need to be able to access the customization / wizard dialogs of the selected chart.

    Thank you for confirmation. I will forward it to the developers.

    Hello ,

    this functionality will be re-established in the upcoming service pack(in the next 3-4 weeks)
    API will be slightly changed. it will work through ExecuteAction(Action, parameter) call of the designer control.

    Thanks,
    Sergey Romanov.
