Drawing shapes (lines, boxes, triangles) using vba in an excel graph

Drawing shapes (lines, boxes, triangles) using vba in an excel graph

I've found one post in this forum that teaches how to draw polylines in a spread sheet.
the coordinate system is located in the upper left corner of the sheet.

Is there a way to do the same but using the coordinate system provided by an excel chart?

Thank you

RE: Drawing shapes (lines, boxes, triangles) using vba in an excel graph


Also, there ares some additional considerations.

Primarily, whether with or without a graph, the process of placing a geometric object on a sheet ought to be generated using a table of data.

Yes, you can use an Excel Chart (graph). This puts a ChatObject Object on your sheet as the mechanism to display data in various ways. If you only want to display geometric objects, the various Chart Objects like, Chart Borders, Chart PlotArea, Axes, Titles, Grid Lines could be coded to be not visible. Such a Chart or Charts can be positioned anywhere on a Sheet. This can all be done via VBA.
