    Hello,

    We have a WPF 4 solution. We are using RadGrids and RadCharts to display report data to the user. Using Telerik Reporting we have built a report to handle exporting the report data to Excel, pdf and making it available to print; however, we are using some of the more advanced features of the RadCharts that are not supported in Reporting.Charts and it has also become very laborious to create a new chart in the Reporting control when we've already created a RadChart for the display in WPF. I have started looking at exporting or saving the RadChart as an image to display in the Reporting control, but am having many issues with the display, particualrly the bars in the bar graph chart do not display in the saved image.

    My question is, what is the easiest, smartest way to handle our situation? I already have a RadGrid and a RadChart both bound to a datasource being displayed on the WPF window, how do I get both of those to display in a printable, Excel exportable format using Telerik Reporting? And if I am already doing the right thing by saving my RadChart as an image, how do I get the Bars to display?

    Thanks much,
    John

    Hello John,

    If the control is properly populated and rendered, there should not be any issues with the export. If the bars are not part of the exported entity, you can open a formal support ticket, and send along a small project, demonstrating your setup, and showing the unwanted behavior. We will review it locally, and advise you further.

    Hi Yavor,

    Can you direct me to a tutorial on how to handle exporting a chart as an image either in memory or saved to disk? I still have not found a resolution to my problem below.

    Thanks,
    John

    Hi John,

    The following topic:

    http://www.telerik.com/help/wpf/radchart-features-chart-export.html

    contains additional information on the export features of the control. The export is demonstrated in the following example:

    I hope this gets you started properly.

    All the best,
