HtmlChart - ClientDataSource

Isolate this demo as a stand-alone application
  • About this demo
  • C#
  • VB

This example shows how a RadHtmlChart control can be bound to RadClienDataSource. The RadClientDataSource instance retreieves the data stored in a json file and orderes the data items by the year property in asc order. The significant chart properties are:

  • ClientDataSourceID in the main tag sets the declarative client data source for the entire chart.
  • DataFieldY for the series to point it to the desired column of the data source.
  • DataLabelsField for the x-axis labels to populate the items for the axis (it can also be applied to the y-axis).
