Occurs when a new chart is created in any open workbook.
expression.WorkbookNewChart (Wb, Ch)
expression A variable that represents an Application object.
|Ch||Required||Chart||The new chart.|
The WorkbookNewChart event occurs when a new chart is inserted or pasted on a worksheet, a chart sheet, or other sheet types. If multiple charts are inserted or pasted, the event will occur for each chart in the order they are inserted or pasted.
If a chart object or chart sheet is moved from one location to another, the event will not occur. However, if the chart is moved between a chart object and a chart sheet, the event will occur because a new chart must be created.
The WorkbookNewChart event will not occur in the following scenarios: copying or pasting a chart sheet, changing a chart type, changing a chart data source, undoing or redoing inserting or pasting a chart, and loading a workbook that contains a chart.
The following code example displays a message box when a new chart is added to a workbook.
Private Sub App_NewChart(ByVal Wb As Workbook, ByVal Ch As Chart) MsgBox ("A new chart was added to: " & Wb.Name & " of type: " & Ch.Type) End Sub
