How to: Create a Chart Sheet

This example demonstrates how to create a new chart sheet - a separate sheet in a workbook containing only a chart. To do this, use the ChartSheetCollection.Add method of the IWorkbook.ChartSheets collection.

To insert a chart sheet at the specified position in the ChartSheetCollection collection, call the ChartSheetCollection.Insert method.

Use the ChartSheet.Chart property to access a chart located on the chart sheet and specify or modify its settings (select chart data, change the chart type and adjust its appearance).

NOTE

A complete sample project is available at https://github.com/DevExpress-Examples/wpf-spreadsheet-chart-api-t113198.

Dim worksheet As Worksheet = workbook.Worksheets("chartTask1")

' Create a chart sheet containing a pie chart.
Dim chartSheet As ChartSheet = workbook.ChartSheets.Add(ChartType.Pie, worksheet("B2:C7"))

workbook.ChartSheets.ActiveChartSheet = chartSheet
