Re: Convert TableBox to StraightTable with Macro Solution

I have copied some more items from the table box, such as window title, show condition, etc. However, I do not manage to copy the exact same Position (top, left, width, height) of the table box to the new straigt table. Maybe somebody knows how to do so:

  'Copy tablebox title
  set cp = chart.GetProperties
  cp.GraphLayout.WindowTitle.v = tbp.Layout.Frame.Name.v
  
  'Copy the calculation condition
  cp.EvaluationCondition.v = tbp.EvaluationCondition.v
 
  'Copy the show condition
  cp.GraphLayout.Frame.Show.Always = false
  cp.GraphLayout.Frame.Show.Expression.v = tbp.Layout.Frame.Show.Expression.v
 
  'Copy the calculation errors messages
  for i = 0 to cp.GraphLayout.ErrorMessageOverrides.Count-1
    cp.GraphLayout.ErrorMessageOverrides.Item(i).v = tbp.ErrorMessageOverrides(i).v
  next 
 
  'Copy position: does not work, new chart does not take exact position of tablebox
  'mh dim dummy(0) 'all parts
  'mh set fr = chart.GetFrameDef
  'mh set pos = fr.Rect
  'mh pos.Top    = tbp.Layout.Frame.Rect.Top
  'mh pos.Left   = tbp.Layout.Frame.Rect.Left
  'mh pos.Width  = tbp.Layout.Frame.Rect.Width
  'mh pos.Height = tbp.Layout.Frame.Rect.Height
  'mh set pos = fr.MinimizedRect
  'mh pos.Top    = tbp.Layout.Frame.Rect.Top
  'mh pos.Left   = tbp.Layout.Frame.Rect.Left
  'mh pos.Width  = tbp.Layout.Frame.Rect.Width
  'mh pos.Height = tbp.Layout.Frame.Rect.Height  
  'mh chart.SetFrame fr, true, dummy
 
  'Copy position: does not work, new chart does not take exact position of tablebox
  pos = chart.GetRect
  pos.Top    = tb.GetRect.Top
  pos.Left   = tb.GetRect.Left
  pos.Width  = tb.GetRect.Width
  pos.Height = tb.GetRect.Height
  chart.SetRect pos
     
  'Apply table box format to chart format
  'Do it manually once new straigt table exists.
  chart.SetProperties cp
