Providing Data

The documents in this section detail several approaches used for providing data to a chart. To learn how a new empty chart can be embedded into your application, refer to the How to: Add a Chart to a Web Application document.

There are two general ways of providing data to your chart.

Manually Create a Series - where each series is explicitly added to the chart's collection. A series isn't displayed unless it has points. Thus, populate your series with points in one of the two following ways:

- manually add points to a series collection with point arguments and values being individually specified;

- specify series data members, based on which a series is populated automatically.

Automatic series creation - where you specify a data source and a common template, based on which, series are both created and populated automatically.

This includes Pivot Charting (Integration with a Pivot Grid Control).

To learn about the most valuable series options, refer to Customize a Series.

The next document in this section is dedicated to Series Scale Types.

Finally, the Colorizer document describes how to automatically provide colors to series points.
