How to: Create Chart Step by Step

The easiest way to create a Graph is with our graph wizard. We have added multiple options to create a graph with the Graph Wizard toolbox item so we strongly encourage you to give it a try. You can also check the standalone designer that supports even more options and tools for creating graphs than Visual Studio.

If you choose not to use the graph wizard and you want to create graphs by yourself our recommendation is to review Structure and Connecting to Data help articles. Then check out the following table that shows the basic configuration for each chart type:
