The Chart Designer used to design a chart at runtime.
To invoke Chart Designer, you should call the ChartDesigner.Show method. To specify the chart control for which the chart designer is invoked, you should pass it as a parameter when creating a ChartDesigner class instance.
The following image demonstrates the Chart Designer.
To learn more on Chart Designer, refer to the Chart Designer topic.
To show the Chart Designer to end-users, create an instance of the ChartDesigner class using the constructor that receives an ChartControl object as a parameter. Then, call the ChartDesigner.Show method.
Note that the DevExpress.Charts.Designer.v20.1 assembly should be added to a project.
