The Telerik MVC Donut chart can be instructed to display data from local data storage using its built-in data-binding capabilities.

There are two ways to bind the chart:

  • Server - the chart will bind to a supplied model
  • Ajax - the chart will perform Ajax requests to populate its series.

In this example you can see how to bind the chart using the server approach. You need to create an action method and pass the SpainElectricityBreakdown enumerator located in the \Models\Chart\ChartDataRepository.cs file as a model. After that you should configure the data bound Percentage, Source and Explode fields for the Series. Note that the view has to be strongly typed so that the chart is able to load its data.

You can find additional information about how to utilize the data-binding capabilities of the MVC chart in the Getting Started section of the product documentation.
