    Is it possible to save a HtmlChart as an image? The goal is to use it in excel or similar products.

    Hello Simon,

    This feature is not supported out of the box because the RadHtmlChart renders entirely on the client as SVG via JavaScript and therefore it is not directly available on the server for exporting. A possible workaround is to:

       - Obtain the SVG as a string and send it to the server through an Ajax request, once the chart is rendered.
       - Use third-party software that can convert and export the SVG image to a more common user format such as PNG or PDF.

    See an example in the Exporting RadHtmlChart to PNG and PDF code library.
