    Hi all,

    Is there a way to export the HtmlChart as an image (stream) on the server-side? I'm trying to generate graphics to add to PDF's completely server-side. All I have seen is client-side exportImage.

    Regards,

    Evan

    Hello Evan,

    The chart renders entire on the client-side, so that in order to export it you should initially render it in the browser. That being said I can suggest the following:
        - Export the chart on the client-side and then send the image to the server.
        - Render the chart on the client-side and then send the rendered image to the server where you can use a third party software to export it. Such an example with the free inkScape software is available here - http://www.telerik.com/support/code-library/exporting-radhtmlchart-to-png-and-pdf. You can also find useful the Phantom JS library that lets you render a browser on the server and export the page.
