is as below - it is the view's renderwindow that needs to be set to my
renderwindow, not the other way around as shown for the Qt widget in the
documentation - specifically:
>         view->SetRenderWindow(GetRenderWindow());
>         view->SetInteractor(GetInteractor());

Glad it worked out. I don't know why the docs says otherwise. Perhaps it's
old information.

the MFC version that comes with VTK to not be dependent on MFC. I am using
the lines below (based on the documentation shows for QT )

program. However the Interactor does not work - i.e. mouse actions do not
pan/zoom the chart.
> I have no such problem when using VTK for other visualizations -creating
and connecting Mapper / Actor / Renderer / Interactor etc. and connecting
the renderwindow to the renderer.  The visualization is shown in my window
and the display responds to mouse and keyboard actions.    What do I need
to do in order to do the same with VTK Charting ? The interacting seems to
have been initialized and started as I can put a break in the program and
step through the Interactor code for mouse events.
