    PROJECT DESCRIPTION
    In this C# project, I use RadChart to create a 3x3 Heatmap using the Gantt Chart in code-behind.

    Open the project within the Heatmap/Heatmap directory. Source code is in the Heatmap/HeatmapWebsite directory.

    This project demonstrates how to add a user control to a web page. See the default.aspx page.
    <%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true"  CodeFile="Default.aspx.cs" Inherits="_Default" %>
      
    <%@ Register Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Namespace="Telerik.Web.UI" TagPrefix="telerik" %>
    <%@ Register TagPrefix="uc" TagName="HeatMapChart" Src="~/HeatMap/HeatMapChart.ascx" %>
      
      
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
      
    <head runat="server">
      <title>Residual Risk Heat Map</title>
    </head>
    <body>
        <form id="form1" runat="server">
        <telerik:RadScriptManager ID="RadScriptManager1" runat="server">
        </telerik:RadScriptManager>
        <div>
            <asp:Label ID="lblError" runat="server"></asp:Label>
            <uc:HeatMapChart ID="HeatMapChart" runat="server" />
        </div>
        </form>
    </body>
    </html>


    The calling page passes in the riskimpact and the risklikelihood. Normally these values would be retrieved from your database.

    // retrieve these values from a database and pass in. For now we'll hard-code them.
    int RiskLikelihood = 3;
    int RiskImpact = 2;
    HeatMapChart.LoadChart(RiskImpact, RiskLikelihood);

    The Heatmapchart.ascx user control is found in the /Heatmapwebsite/Heatmap directory. In the user control, I use RadChart to display a heat map.  In a 3x3 Heat Map Chart a bullet displays in the corresponding area of the chart.

    The code-in-front simply stubs in the RadChart, our coding is in the code behind:
    <%@ Control Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="HeatMapChart.ascx.cs" 
    Inherits="HeatMapChart" %>
    <%@ Register Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Namespace="Telerik.Web.UI" TagPrefix="telerik" %>
    <%@ Register assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" namespace="Telerik.Charting" tagprefix="telerik" %>
      
    <asp:Label ID="lblError" runat="server"></asp:Label>
      
      <asp:Panel ID="panMain" runat="server">
      
          <telerik:RadChart ID="chtHeatMap" runat="server">
          </telerik:RadChart>
    </asp:Panel>

    We need to import Telerik.Charting:
    using Telerik.Charting;

    The RadChart is setup in the LoadChart function. This example shows how to use the Image FillType for the background labels.

    This project demonstrates how to setup three ChartSeries; setup the PlotArea XAxis and YAxis, and add a ChartSeriesType.Bubble on the chart.
    public void LoadChart(int impact, int likelihood)
    {
        ResetError();
        try
        {
            // optionally you may setup the background with a skin or with a fillstyle color:
            //chtHeatMap.Skin = "WebBlue"
            // chtHeatMap.Appearance.FillStyle.MainColor = System.Drawing.ColorTranslator.FromHtml("#DADEE6")
            chtHeatMap.Appearance.Border.Visible = true;
            chtHeatMap.Appearance.Border.Width = 2;
            chtHeatMap.Appearance.FillStyle.FillType = Telerik.Charting.Styles.FillType.Image;
            chtHeatMap.Appearance.FillStyle.FillSettings.BackgroundImage = "~\\HeatMap\\heatmap2.png";
            chtHeatMap.Chart.ChartTitle.TextBlock.Text = "Residual Risk Heat Map";
            chtHeatMap.Chart.ChartTitle.Appearance.FillStyle.MainColor = System.Drawing.ColorTranslator.FromHtml("#DADEE6");
            chtHeatMap.PlotArea.XAxis.LayoutMode = Telerik.Charting.Styles.ChartAxisLayoutMode.Normal;
            chtHeatMap.PlotArea.XAxis.AutoScale = false;

            chtHeatMap.PlotArea.YAxis.Step = 1;
            chtHeatMap.PlotArea.YAxis.Appearance.MajorTick.Visible = false;
            chtHeatMap.PlotArea.YAxis.Appearance.MinorTick.Visible = false;
            chtHeatMap.PlotArea.YAxis.Appearance.LabelAppearance.Visible = false;
            Telerik.Charting.ChartSeries seriesLow = new Telerik.Charting.ChartSeries();
            chtHeatMap.AddChartSeries(seriesLow);
            seriesLow.Type = ChartSeriesType.Gantt;
            seriesLow.Appearance.LabelAppearance.Visible = false;
            Telerik.Charting.ChartSeries seriesMedium = new Telerik.Charting.ChartSeries();
            chtHeatMap.AddChartSeries(seriesMedium);
            seriesMedium.Type = ChartSeriesType.Gantt;
            seriesMedium.Appearance.LabelAppearance.Visible = false;
            Telerik.Charting.ChartSeries seriesHigh = new Telerik.Charting.ChartSeries();
            chtHeatMap.AddChartSeries(seriesHigh);
            seriesHigh.Type = ChartSeriesType.Gantt;
            seriesHigh.Appearance.LabelAppearance.Visible = false;
            seriesLow.Name = "Low";
            seriesMedium.Name = "Medium";
            seriesHigh.Name = "High";
            seriesLow.Appearance.FillStyle.MainColor = System.Drawing.ColorTranslator.FromHtml("#B3FFB3");
            seriesMedium.Appearance.FillStyle.MainColor = System.Drawing.ColorTranslator.FromHtml("#FFFFB3");
            seriesHigh.Appearance.FillStyle.MainColor = System.Drawing.ColorTranslator.FromHtml("#FFA6A6");
            seriesLow.Appearance.FillStyle.SecondColor = System.Drawing.Color.Green;
            seriesMedium.Appearance.FillStyle.SecondColor = System.Drawing.Color.Yellow;
            seriesHigh.Appearance.FillStyle.SecondColor = System.Drawing.Color.Red;
            // optionally you may set the background with a solid color
            //seriesLow.Appearance.FillStyle.FillType = Styles.FillType.Solid
            //seriesMedium.Appearance.FillStyle.FillType = Styles.FillType.Solid
            //seriesHigh.Appearance.FillStyle.FillType = Styles.FillType.Solid
            Telerik.Charting.ChartSeries seriesBubble = new Telerik.Charting.ChartSeries();
            chtHeatMap.AddChartSeries(seriesBubble);
            seriesBubble.Type = ChartSeriesType.Bubble;
            seriesBubble.Appearance.LegendDisplayMode = ChartSeriesLegendDisplayMode.Nothing;
            seriesBubble.Appearance.BubbleSize = 50;
            seriesBubble.Appearance.PointDimentions.AutoSize = false;
            seriesBubble.Appearance.PointDimentions.Height = 30;
            seriesBubble.Appearance.PointDimentions.Width = 30;
            seriesBubble.Appearance.FillStyle.FillType = Telerik.Charting.Styles.FillType.Gradient;
            seriesBubble.Appearance.FillStyle.MainColor = System.Drawing.ColorTranslator.FromHtml("#219CEF");
            seriesBubble.Appearance.FillStyle.SecondColor = System.Drawing.ColorTranslator.FromHtml("#01467D");
            seriesBubble.Appearance.LabelAppearance.Visible = false;
            seriesBubble.Appearance.Border.Visible = false;
            Telerik.Charting.ChartSeriesItem lowItem1 = new Telerik.Charting.ChartSeriesItem();
            seriesLow.AddItem(lowItem1);
            lowItem1.XValue = 0;
            lowItem1.XValue2 = 1;
            lowItem1.YValue = 1;
            lowItem1.YValue2 = 0;
            Telerik.Charting.ChartSeriesItem lowItem2 = new Telerik.Charting.ChartSeriesItem();
            seriesLow.AddItem(lowItem2);
            lowItem2.XValue = 0;
            lowItem2.XValue2 = 1;
            lowItem2.YValue = 2;
            lowItem2.YValue2 = 1;
            Telerik.Charting.ChartSeriesItem lowItem3 = new Telerik.Charting.ChartSeriesItem();
            seriesLow.AddItem(lowItem3);
            lowItem3.XValue = 1;
            lowItem3.XValue2 = 2;
            lowItem3.YValue = 2;
            lowItem3.YValue2 = 0;
            Telerik.Charting.ChartSeriesItem mediumItem1 = new Telerik.Charting.ChartSeriesItem();
            seriesMedium.AddItem(mediumItem1);
            mediumItem1.XValue = 0;
            mediumItem1.XValue2 = 1;
            mediumItem1.YValue = 3;
            mediumItem1.YValue2 = 2;

            Telerik.Charting.ChartSeriesItem highItem1 = new Telerik.Charting.ChartSeriesItem();
            seriesHigh.AddItem(highItem1);
            highItem1.XValue = 1;
            highItem1.XValue2 = 2;
            highItem1.YValue = 3;
            highItem1.YValue2 = 2;
            Telerik.Charting.ChartSeriesItem highItem2 = new Telerik.Charting.ChartSeriesItem();
            seriesHigh.AddItem(highItem2);
            highItem2.XValue = 2;
            highItem2.XValue2 = 3;
            highItem2.YValue = 3;
            highItem2.YValue2 = 2;
            Telerik.Charting.ChartSeriesItem highItem3 = new Telerik.Charting.ChartSeriesItem();
            seriesHigh.AddItem(highItem3);
            highItem3.XValue = 2;
            highItem3.XValue2 = 3;
            highItem3.YValue = 2;
            highItem3.YValue2 = 1;
            SetRating(impact, likelihood, seriesBubble);
        }
        catch (Exception ex)
        {
            SendError(ex.Message);
        }
    }


    The SetRating function passes in the impact and likelihood and sets the Bubble to the corresponding location in the Heatmap.
    protected void SetRating(int impact, int likelihood, Telerik.Charting.ChartSeries seriesBubble)
    {
        try
        {
            Telerik.Charting.ChartSeriesItem bubbleItem = new Telerik.Charting.ChartSeriesItem();
            seriesBubble.AddItem(bubbleItem);
            int xV = 0;
            xV = impact - 1;
            // zero based
            bubbleItem.XValue = xV + 0.5;
            int yV = 0;
            yV = likelihood - 1;
            // zero based
            bubbleItem.YValue = yV + 0.5;
        }
        catch (Exception ex)
        {
            SendError(ex.Message);
        }
    }


    Our SendError function simply populates the error label:
    #region "Error Events"
    protected void SendError(string errorMessage)
    {
        if (errorMessage != string.Empty)
        {
            lblError.Text = errorMessage;
            lblError.Visible = true;
        }
    }
    protected void ResetError()
    {
        lblError.Text = string.Empty;
        lblError.Visible = false;
    }
    #endregion

    The attached zip includes the Telerik trial version libraries in the Bin directory.

    May your dreams be in ASP.NET!

    P.S. Thanks to Ves, Telerik's support team, for providing a 2x2 code-in-front example. I have setup this project entirely in code-behind and added more features.
