 End-User Documentation


This document describes the assemblies required by applications that use the ASP.NET Chart control functionality. Some of the assemblies are essential, while others, which provide additional functionality, can be optionally deployed depending on your requirements.

Note that if you use other DevExpress components in your application, their use and deployment should comply with the corresponding EULA documents. For more details on licensing information and the redistribution policy of DevExpress, refer to Redistribution and Deployment.


There are some restrictions on using web charts at the Medium Trust permission level. For more information on this, refer to Medium Trust Support.

Expanded Required Libraries

Below is a list of the essential libraries required by applications that use the ASP.NET Chart control. These libraries are considered redistributable under the .NET Controls & Frameworks EULA, and are intended for distribution by you to the end-users of the software applications that you create.



DevExpress.Data.v17.2.dll Implements the most basic functionality common to all DevExpress controls. This includes classes for data binding, skinning, printing, exporting, as well as many other auxiliary types and resources.
DevExpress.Utils.v17.2.dll Contains basic utility classes and common skins (such as "DevExpress Style", "Visual Studio 2013", "Office 2013" and "Seven Classic").
DevExpress.Printing.v17.2.Core.dll Contains classes that implement the basic functionality for DevExpress printing libraries.
DevExpress.Pdf.v17.2.Core.dll Contains internal classes that provide the basic functionality to parse and render PDF files.
DevExpress.XtraEditors.v17.2.dll Contains a set of full-featured editors supported by the XtraEditors Suite.
Note: This assembly is also required when using the PdfViewer control.
DevExpress.Charts.v17.2.Core.dll All DevExpress Charting controls contain classes shared via the same charting engine. These classes, along with a codebase, are intended for internal use, but also provide the basic functionality for ASP.NET Charts, WinForms Charts, and WPF Charts.

This assembly is also required when deploying an application containing the WPF Spreadsheet control with a chart.
DevExpress.XtraCharts.v17.2.dll Contains basic classes that implement the main functionality for the XtraCharts.
DevExpress.Web.v17.2.dll Contains classes that implement the core functionality of all DevExpress web controls and the functionality of controls from the following components: Data Editors, GridView, Card View, Vertical Grid, Image and Data Browsing, Docking and Popups, Site Navigation and Layout, File Management and Multi-Use Site Controls.
DevExpress.XtraCharts.v17.2.Web.dll Contains the WebChartControl control that is intended for use in ASP.NET applications.

Expanded Additional Libraries

The following libraries provide additional functionality for applications that use the functionality of the Chart control. See the "Remarks" column for details.




DevExpress.XtraPrinting.v17.2.dll Contains the PrintingSystem component, together with other additional controls that provide printing and exporting functionality for other controls, including ChartControl and WebChartControl. This dll is required if the chart's data (or any control's data based on the ChartControl or WebChartControl) needs to be printed or exported.
