Binding to DataTable

Binding to DataTable is quite easy with RadChartView. Once your table is created, you just need to set the needed members to the desired fields. In this article , you can find the members needed for the different series types.

Here is a sample demonstrating how to bind а LineSeries:

Binding to DataTable

DataTable table;
protected override void OnLoad(EventArgs e)
    table = new DataTable();
    table.Columns.Add("Value", typeof(double));
    table.Columns.Add("Name", typeof(string));
    table.Rows.Add(1, "John");
    table.Rows.Add(3, "Adam");
    table.Rows.Add(5, "Peter");
    table.Rows.Add(12, "Sam");
    table.Rows.Add(6, "Paul");
    LineSeries lineSeria = new LineSeries();
    lineSeria.ValueMember = "Value";
    lineSeria.CategoryMember = "Name";
    lineSeria.DataSource = table;

Private table As DataTable
Protected Overrides Sub OnLoad(e As EventArgs)
    table = New DataTable()
    table.Columns.Add("Value", GetType(Double))
    table.Columns.Add("Name", GetType(String))
    table.Rows.Add(1, "John")
    table.Rows.Add(3, "Adam")
    table.Rows.Add(5, "Peter")
    table.Rows.Add(12, "Sam")
    table.Rows.Add(6, "Paul")
    Dim lineSeria As New LineSeries()
    lineSeria.ValueMember = "Value"
    lineSeria.CategoryMember = "Name"
    lineSeria.DataSource = table
End Sub
