How to: Print a Chart and Show its Print Preview

  • 2 minutes to read

This example demonstrates how to print a ChartControl, or show its Print Preview.

To do this, you should use either the ChartControlBase.Print or ChartControlBase.ShowPrintPreview methods.

The Print Preview displays the chart as it will appear when printed. Note that the chart can be previewed and printed only if the DXPrinting Library is available.

The image below shows the print preview of a Chart control.
