Chart Wizard Overview

This topic describes how to invoke the Chart Wizard, and briefly explains its structure.

Click the WebChartControl's smart tag, and choose Run Wizard... from its Tasks list to invoke the Chart Wizard.


The Wizard is organized in two main areas: the toolbar on the left (which lists pages, that in turn, are organized in two groups: Construction and Presentation), and the main pages area, where all the options are represented by tabs, and where the real-time chart's preview is situated. And, the panel at the bottom provides quick navigation through the Wizard's pages.


If your chart is supposed to obtain data from a dataset (the most common case), before you run the Wizard, you should assign that data source's name to the ASPxDataWebControlBase.DataSource property, to be able to adjust all data-specific settings using the Wizard.

In addition, WebChartControl allows you to freely customize and localize the Chart Wizard. Refer to the following help topic for more information: Chart Wizard.
