How to: Add a Chart to a Web Page (Runtime Sample)

This tutorial demonstrates how a chart can be generated and shown in a web page with a button click. For an alternative approach to this task, refer to How to: Add a Chart to an ASPxCallbackPanel during its Callback (Runtime Sample).

To demonstrate how this can be done, do the following.

  1. Create a new ASP.NET Web Application (Visual Studio 2010, 2012, 2013, 2015 or 2017), or open an existing one.

  2. Switch to the Design view of the Default.aspx page, and from the DX.18.1: Common Controls toolbox tab, drop an ASPxButton onto the page. We'll handle its Click event, to generate a web chart.

  3. Add the required assemblies to the project.

    Note that if you prefer that the assemblies be added automatically (by dropping a WebChartControl instance onto the page), this affects your web application's Web.config file. To learn about the changes being made to it, refer to Adding a Web Chart.

  4. Now, double-click the ASPxButton1, to handle its Click event. Add the following code to the event handler.

    Note that prior to accessing elements and properties of a dynamically created WebChartControl, it should be added to the Page.Form.Controls collection.

Run the web application, and click the ASPxButton1 to see the resulting chart.
