Deployment of ASP.NET Chart Control

  • 3 minutes to read

This document describes the assemblies required by applications that use the DevExpress ASP.NET Chart Control functionality. Some assemblies are essential, while others that provide additional functionality can be optionally deployed - based 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 and the DevExpress redistribution policy, refer to the following help topic: Redistribution and Deployment.

Use our Assembly Deployment Tool to collect the required redistributable DevExpress and custom assemblies automatically to deploy your application. Otherwise, you can deploy the required assemblies manually.

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.




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.


Contains cross-platform counterparts of the System.Drawing classes not supported in non-Windows environments.


Contains classes that implement the basic functionality for DevExpress printing libraries.


Contains internal classes that provide the basic functionality to parse and render PDF files.


Contains classes that implement the logic for formatting rich text, as well as basic types that provide a public API common to such DevExpress RTF controls as ASP.NET RichEdit, WinForms RichEdit, and WPF RichEdit.

This assembly is also required when you use a Rich Edit in-place editor (RepositoryItemRichTextEdit) and/or when you export to DOCX format.


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 that contains the WPF Spreadsheet control with a chart.


Contains basic classes that implement the main functionality for XtraCharts.


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, Data and Image Navigation, Docking and Popups, Site Navigation and Layout, File Management and Multi-Use Site Controls.


Contains the WebChartControl control that is intended for use in ASP.NET applications.
