Data Binding RadChart to ObjectDataSource at Design-Time

RadChart has been replaced by RadHtmlChart, Telerik's client-side charting component. If you are considering RadChart for new development, examine the RadHtmlChart documentation and online demos first to see if it will fit your development needs. If you are already using RadChart in your projects, you can migrate to RadHtmlChart by following these articles: Migrating Series, Migrating Axes, Migrating Date Axes, Migrating Databinding, Features parity. Support for RadChart is discontinued as of Q3 2014, but the control will remain in the assembly so it can still be used. We encourage you to use RadHtmlChart for new development.

Use the Data Source Configuration Wizard to bind ObjectDataSourceat design time:

  1. Click the RadChart Smart Tag "Choose Data Source" | "New Data Source".

    Smart Tag Choose Data Source

  2. From the "Choose a data source type" page of the wizard select "Object" and click "OK".

    Choose a data source type

  3. From the "Choose a Business Object" page of the wizard, select your business object from the drop down list.Click Next.

    Choose a business object

  4. On the "Define data methods" page choose the select method from the drop down list. Click Finish. A new ObjectDataSource component will be visible on the page and the RadChart DataSource property will point to it.
