    I'm developing a UI where the user can select from n stored procedures and view a chart for the resulting data. I need to develop a way to allow the user to configure a chart (for now I'm starting simple, bar/column/line chart only). I saw a prior post that said to look into scaffolding. I did, but still can't figure an intuitive way for the user to select the various axis and series. I'm hoping someone can point me to a working demo that allows the user to configure their chart elements.

    Thanks in advance!

    Steve.

    Hi Steve,

    We do not have such a example already prepared  but you can use the chart's API in order to configure the Chart with the chosen by your users preferences.  You can directly access the client-side widget of the chart's MVC wrapper and apply the needed options to it, or create the controller data dynamically by implementing your custom logic for that. The scaffolding of the Chart is a Visual Studio extension which cannot be directly used for your purpose, but you can have a similar approach for collecting the users data as a base for your own implementation.

    Thanks, Vessy. I took a look at the scaffolding and figured that could be a UI that I could emulate. Was hoping for something 'canned' to save a bit of time. Thanks for the reply!
