Data Binding to Nested Collections

The purpose of this tutorial is to show you how to populate RadChart with data in a form of nested collections using Data Binding with Manual Series Mapping.

In order to bind RadChart to nested collections:

1. Create a new business object and name it TradeData.

using System; 
using System.Collections.ObjectModel; 
namespace Silverlight.Help.RadChartSamples 
{ 
    public class TradeData 
    { 
        public string Emission 
        { 
            get; 
            set; 
        } 
        public DateTime FromDate 
        { 
            get; 
            set; 
        } 
        public DateTime ToDate 
        { 
            get; 
            set; 
        } 
        public double Open 
        { 
            get; 
            set; 
        } 
        public double High

2. Add a new RadChart declaration.

<Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot" 
        Background="White"> 
    <telerik:RadChart x:Name="radChart"> 
        <telerik:RadChart.DefaultView> 
            <telerik:ChartDefaultView> 
                <telerik:ChartDefaultView.ChartTitle> 
                    <telerik:ChartTitle Content="Trade Data" /> 
                </telerik:ChartDefaultView.ChartTitle> 
            </telerik:ChartDefaultView> 
        </telerik:RadChart.DefaultView> 
    </telerik:RadChart> 
</Grid> 
3. The key here is to use the SeriesMapping.CollectionIndex__property. __RadChart support nested collections via SeriesMapping.CollectionIndex property. This property allows the chart to be data bound to a collection/array nested inside another collection/array. The index used is the index of the internal collection inside the ItemsSource.

<Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot" 
        Background="White"> 
    <telerik:RadChart x:Name="radChart"> 
        <telerik:RadChart.DefaultView> 
            <telerik:ChartDefaultView> 
                <telerik:ChartDefaultView.ChartTitle> 
                    <telerik:ChartTitle Content="Trade Data" /> 
                </telerik:ChartDefaultView.ChartTitle> 
            </telerik:ChartDefaultView> 
        </telerik:RadChart.DefaultView> 
        <telerik:RadChart.SeriesMappings> 
            <telerik:SeriesMapping LegendLabel="CSCO" CollectionIndex="0"> 
                <telerik:SeriesMapping.SeriesDefinition> 
                    <telerik:LineSeriesDefinition ShowItemLabels="False" /> 
                </telerik:SeriesMapping.SeriesDefinition> 
                <telerik:SeriesMapping.ItemMappings> 
                    <telerik:ItemMapping DataPointMember="YValue" 
                                            FieldName="Close" /> 
                </telerik:SeriesMapping.ItemMappings> 
            </telerik:SeriesMapping> 
            <telerik:SeriesMapping LegendLabel="MSFT" CollectionIndex="1"> 
                <telerik:SeriesMapping.SeriesDefinition> 
                    <telerik:LineSeriesDefinition ShowItemLabels="False" /> 
                </telerik:SeriesMapping.SeriesDefinition> 
                <telerik:SeriesMapping.ItemMappings> 
                    <telerik:ItemMapping DataPointMember="YValue" 
                                            FieldName="Close" /> 
                </telerik:SeriesMapping.ItemMappings> 
            </telerik:SeriesMapping> 
        </telerik:RadChart.SeriesMappings> 
    </telerik:RadChart> 
</Grid> 
4. Set the ItemsSource property of the RadChart control.

List<ObservableCollection<TradeData>> sampleData = new List<ObservableCollection<TradeData>>(); 
sampleData.Add( TradeData.GetWeeklyData( "CSCO" ) ); 
sampleData.Add( TradeData.GetWeeklyData( "MSFT" ) ); 
this.radChart.ItemsSource = sampleData; 
Dim sampleData As New List(Of ObservableCollection(Of TradeData))() 
sampleData.Add(TradeData.GetWeeklyData("CSCO")) 
sampleData.Add(TradeData.GetWeeklyData("MSFT")) 
Me.radChart.ItemsSource = sampleData 
5. The final result should look like the snapshot below.

6. The same functionality can be achieved with code-behind as well. Below is listed the equivalent procedural code.

List<ObservableCollection<TradeData>> sampleData = new List<ObservableCollection<TradeData>>(); 
sampleData.Add( TradeData.GetWeeklyData( "CSCO" ) ); 
sampleData.Add( TradeData.GetWeeklyData( "MSFT" ) ); 
 
//Series mapping for the collection with index 0 
SeriesMapping seriesMapping = new SeriesMapping(); 
seriesMapping.CollectionIndex = 0; 
seriesMapping.LegendLabel = "CSCO"; 
seriesMapping.SeriesDefinition = new LineSeriesDefinition(); 
seriesMapping.SeriesDefinition.ShowItemLabels = false; 
ItemMapping itemMapping = new ItemMapping(); 
itemMapping.DataPointMember = DataPointMember.YValue; 
itemMapping.FieldName = "Close"; 
seriesMapping.ItemMappings.Add( itemMapping ); 
this.radChart.SeriesMappings.Add( seriesMapping ); 
 
//Series mapping for the collection with index 1 
seriesMapping = new SeriesMapping(); 
seriesMapping.CollectionIndex = 1; 
seriesMapping.LegendLabel = "MSFT"; 
seriesMapping.SeriesDefinition = new LineSeriesDefinition(); 
seriesMapping.SeriesDefinition.ShowItemLabels = false; 
itemMapping = new ItemMapping(); 
itemMapping.DataPointMember = DataPointMember.YValue; 
itemMapping.FieldName = "Close"; 
seriesMapping.ItemMappings.Add( itemMapping ); 
this.radChart.SeriesMappings.Add( seriesMapping ); 
this.radChart.ItemsSource = sampleData; 
Dim sampleData As New List(Of ObservableCollection(Of TradeData))() 
sampleData.Add(TradeData.GetWeeklyData("CSCO")) 
sampleData.Add(TradeData.GetWeeklyData("MSFT")) 
 
'Series mapping for the collection with index 0 
Dim seriesMapping As New SeriesMapping() 
seriesMapping.CollectionIndex = 0 
seriesMapping.LegendLabel = "CSCO" 
seriesMapping.SeriesDefinition = New LineSeriesDefinition() 
seriesMapping.SeriesDefinition.ShowItemLabels = False 
Dim itemMapping As New ItemMapping() 
itemMapping.DataPointMember = DataPointMember.YValue 
itemMapping.FieldName = "Close" 
seriesMapping.ItemMappings.Add(itemMapping) 
Me.radChart.SeriesMappings.Add(seriesMapping) 
 
'Series mapping for the collection with index 1 
seriesMapping = New SeriesMapping() 
seriesMapping.CollectionIndex = 1 
seriesMapping.LegendLabel = "MSFT" 
seriesMapping.SeriesDefinition = New LineSeriesDefinition() 
seriesMapping.SeriesDefinition.ShowItemLabels = False 
itemMapping = New ItemMapping() 
itemMapping.DataPointMember = DataPointMember.YValue 
itemMapping.FieldName = "Close" 
seriesMapping.ItemMappings.Add(itemMapping) 
Me.radChart.SeriesMappings.Add(seriesMapping) 
Me.radChart.ItemsSource = sampleData
