Create chart in code behind and display it RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi,

    this is my code:

    double[] yValues = { 15, 60, 12, 13 };
    string[] xValues = { "September", "October", "November", "December" };
    // Create a pie chart
     Chart chart = new Chart();
    // Build a pie series
    Series series = new Series("Default");
    series.ChartType = SeriesChartType.Pie;
    series["PieLabelStyle"] = "Disabled";
    // Define the chart area
    ChartArea chartArea = new ChartArea();
    ChartArea3DStyle areaStyle = new ChartArea3DStyle(chartArea);
    areaStyle.Rotation = 0;
    Axis yAxis = new Axis(chartArea, AxisName.Y);
    Axis xAxis = new Axis(chartArea, AxisName.X);
    // Bind the data to the chart
                    chart.Series["Default"].Points.DataBindXY(xValues, yValues);
    // Save the chart as a 300 x 200 image
    chart.Width = new System.Web.UI.WebControls.Unit(300, System.Web.UI.WebControls.UnitType.Pixel);
    chart.Height = new System.Web.UI.WebControls.Unit(200, System.Web.UI.WebControls.UnitType.Pixel);
     System.IO.MemoryStream ms = new System.IO.MemoryStream();
    chart.SaveImage(ms, ChartImageFormat.Png);
    Session["GraficoClientePorTipo"] = ms.ToArray();
    divInferior.Controls.Add(new LiteralControl("<div>" + chart.GetHtmlImageMap("GraficoClientePorTipo") + "</div>"));

    my problem is the chart doens't appear in my div and I can't put <asp:chart> in the side page.aspx.

    thanks for help

  • Hi  lizie,

    According to your code, I see you used some code from Web application. For web project issue, you should post in Asp.Net forum.


    Thanks for your understanding.
