    I am using an older version of the RadControls (2011.3.1115.40). I would like to save the charts to jpeg format. I have a button on the form which invokes the following event: 

            protected void btnSaveChar_OnClick(object sender, EventArgs e)
                RadChart1.Save(Server.MapPath("~/files/chart.jpg"), System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Jpeg); 

    This definitely saves the chart, but its a blank chart with the label "There is no or empty series". What do I need to do to save the chart as it is displayed on the webform?

    Hello Xav,

    Thank you for writing.

    I tested the method you are using but there were no issues on my side. The chart was saved to the image with all the data inside it. I tested the case in both bound and unbound mode. An alternative approach you can try is the DrawToBitmap method. This method is inherited from Control and can be used for any control, here is how use it:
    Bitmap bmp = new Bitmap(this.radChart1.Width, this.radChart1.Height);
    this.radChart1.DrawToBitmap(bmp, new Rectangle(0, 0, bmp.Width, bmp.Height));

    If this does not work as well, I would kindly ask you to send me your project or an example where you are able to reproduce this behavior so I can investigate the issue further.

    I hope this will be useful. Should you have further questions, I would be glad to help.
