ASP.NET Charts - Runtime Chart Designer (v15.1)

Don Wibier's Blog
28 May 2015

Over the few years we’ve had web-based charts, we’ve always had a Visual Studio-based designer for customizing and creating charts. 

Using this designer, you can specify the elements that make up a chart, such as the one or more data series, the chart types, and so on.

Feedback from customers has been positive, but – and there’s always a but – customers also wanted the same kind of functionality for their users.

So, I am happy to announce that, with v15.1, we’re releasing a brand new ASP.NET runtime charts designer for WebForms.

Before you ask, the designer is implemented as a separate control . Drop the new ASP.NET ChartDesigner control on a form, add a few lines of code that will allow the control to determine where to load and save the customized chart definition, and you’re all set: your users will now be able to customize the chart as and how they wish, in the browser of their choice.

Customization options

So what chart options can they customize? Initially, with v15.1, they’ll be able to

  • Add and remove chart elements like series, legends, titles.
  • Customize chart element appearance and layout like fonts, colors, positions of elements.
  • Manage data bindings of the series.
