    This post of Gergely Orosz provides an example to print charts and looks at how elements can be auto scaled to fit the page size.

    There are lots of examples on blogs demonstrating printing on simple elements. However I wanted to test how the printing functionality performs when working with charts.

    I chose to use the most widespread (and free) charting component, the Silverlight Toolkit. In my example I’ve created four charts and added printing support to all of them.

    Jim Lynn had a problem when binding data to a Silverlight Toolkit chart and decided to post the workaround in case someone else needs it.

    We’re releasing an analytics application in Silverlight to people inside the BBC. Today is release day, and we had some last-minute tweaks we wanted to roll out. Unfortunately, some of our customers were reporting a strange error when they tried this new version.

    David Anson has written a post about rotating the axis labels of a chart.

    When someone asked me how to rotate the axis labels of a chart from the Data Visualization package of the Silverlight Toolkit/WPF Toolkit earlier today, I realized it was time for a quick blog post. Because when I've answered a question two or three times, it's usually a pretty good sign that I'll keep on answering it for some time. I usually try to head that kind of thing off at the pass, so here's my post on the topic for the benefit of future generations.

  • Databinding Multi-Series Charts

    1 comments  /  posted by  Beat Kiener  on  Feb 08, 2010 (4 months ago)
    Beat Kiener explains in details how to create a fully bindable mutli-series chart control which provides the same content model as other well-known controls such the ItemsControl.

    I am working on a Silverlight project, where we doing straight MVVM. Binding the Chart control included in the Silverlight Toolkit ( to a ViewModel is quite simple. But what when I want to bind a collection of different “graphs” each with an own collection of data-points to a single chart?

    In this tutorial of Team Visifire is explained how to export Visifire Silverlight chart as an image from managed code.

    Create a “Silverlight Application” project. Download the latest Visifire binaries from here. Extract the Zip file and add reference for the file named “SLVisifire.Charts.dll”. In this sample, I am going to use WriteableBitmap class in order to extract the pixel wise color information of the chart rendered inside Silverlight content. We will take help of JpegEncoder provided by a third party library called FJ.Core to encode the raster information to file stream.

    David Anson announces that the WPF Toolkit team just published the June 2009 release of the WPF Toolkit. As usual David included some new Charting samples with his release notes to showcase new features. The big feature here is WPF Charting, so he has put together a solution that contains almost all of the public Charting samples he has ever posted.

    WPF is now an official platform for Charting! Today's release of the June 2009 WPF Toolkit includes the binaries for WPF Charting, the associated design-time assemblies for both Visual Studio 2008 and Blend 3, and the complete source code for everything (under the usual Ms-PL license).

    Peter Bromberg has created a Silverlight application that can display information from TwitterCount via a binding and Chart controls:

    I stumbled on to recently and like any typical narcissistic geek, I put my username in there to see their stats on my account. One of the first things I noticed is the nice chart that shows a timeline of your followers counts. Being an ex financial consultant, I love charts. The next thing I noticed is that they have a very easy - to - use API that will return all this data in XML format, which makes is pretty easy to turn into objects that can be bound to Silverlight fields, and the series of chart data can be bound to a Silverlight chart.
