Property Value

Type Default Description


A ChartImageType enumeration value, specifying how a chart is rendered in a report.


Use the ImageType property to specify whether a chart should be internally rendered as a metafile or bitmap in a report.

  • If this property is set to ChartImageType.Metafile (the default value), the quality of the rendered image is always good, but in particular cases some details of the control can be lost.
  • If this property is set to ChartImageType.Bitmap, the quality of the rendered image is sometimes poor, but it allows a control to be drawn more precisely.
