Adding a Web Chart

  • 2 minutes to read

This document explains how a chart can be added to your Web application both at design time within Visual Studio, and programmatically.

To learn how a chart can be added to a Web page at design time within Visual Studio, refer to How to: Add a Chart to a Web Application.

Note that after a chart is first added to your web application, its Web.config file is affected. The following module is added to its XML code:

Web.config

<system.web>

    <!– The following lines will be added to the system.web section.

    –>

    <httpModules>

        <add type=”DevExpress.Web.ASPxHttpHandlerModule, DevExpress.Web.v18.2,

        Version=18.2.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=_”

        name=”ASPxHttpHandlerModule” />

    </httpModules>

</system.web>

    <!– And, the following - to the system.webServer section.

    –>

<system.webServer>

    <validation validateIntegratedModeConfiguration=”false” />

    <modules>

        <add type=”DevExpress.Web.ASPxHttpHandlerModule, DevExpress.Web.v18.2,

        Version=18.2.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=_”

        name=”ASPxHttpHandlerModule” />

    </modules>

</system.webServer>

To learn more about the ASPxHttpHandlerModule, refer to the following document: ASPxHttpHandlerModule.

To learn how a chart can be created and added to a Web page programmatically, refer to How to: Add a Chart to a Web Page (Runtime Sample)

Alternatively, a Web chart can be created entirely on the client side. A tutorial on this can be found at How to: Add a Chart to an ASPxCallbackPanel during its Callback (Runtime Sample).
