Bind a Series to a Data Source

This document describes how to specify a data source for a manually created series so that it is populated with points based on the specified fields. This is an alternative approach to adding series points manually.

After you create a series manually, it is not displayed unless it has points. You can force a series to obtain its data from your project’s data source.

To do this, assign your data source to the Series.DataSource property, and define the Series.ArgumentDataMember and Series.ValueDataMember properties.

If a series type requires more than one value to be provided for its points, these values are specified via attached properties (e.g., BubbleSeries2D.WeightDataMember).

For code examples, refer to the following tutorials.
