To export the chart, use the appropriate ExportTo~ method (e.g., ChartControlBase.ExportToHtml, ChartControlBase.ExportToPdf, etc.)


The chart can be previewed, printed and exported only if the DXPrinting Library is available. Make sure you add a reference to the DevExpress.Xpf.Printing.v20.1 assembly.
