// ...
// Create a chart instance.
XRChart chart = new XRChart();
// Create a chart parameter and bind it to the OrderID field. Prepend the field name with the data member name.
chart.Parameters.Add(new XRControlParameter("ChartOrderID", null, "OrderedProducts.OrderID"));

Series series1 = new Series("Series1", ViewType.StackedBar);
series1.ArgumentDataMember = "OrderedProducts.ProductName";
series1.ValueDataMembers.AddRange(new string[] { "Products.DiscountedPrice" });

series2.ArgumentDataMember = "OrderedProducts.ProductName";
series2.ValueDataMembers.AddRange(new string[] { "Products.UnitPrice" });
// Apply the same filter as for the first series.
