Assembly: DevExpress.Xpf.Charts.v21.2.dll

Declaration

public void LoadFromFile(
    string fileName

Parameters

Remarks

Use the LoadFromFile method to load the diagram layout from an XML file. If this file does not exist, the System.IO.FileNotFoundException is raised. Note that the layout file does not contain data items. Specify the diagram’s DataSource property to load data to the Sankey Diagram Control after the LoadFromFile method is called.

sankeyDiagramControl1.LoadFromFile("D:/temp/SankeyLayout.xml");
sankeyDiagramControl1.DataSource = model.GetData();

To save the layout to a file, call the SankeyDiagramControl.SaveToFile method.
