    I see in the demos that export to an image format is supported.  Is it possible to do this on the server side, using the libraries? I need a fail-safe for the charting for users without Silverlight installed (or on platforms that silverlight is not supported).  My thought is to use Silverlight by default, but send over an exported image via ajax if the user doesn't have Silverlight.

    Hello Orion H,

    Silverlight is a client-only technology. This means it runs inside your browser and it is not possible to render the chart "on the server" and stream a png to the browser. You may, however, consider checking if the browser has SL installed and using the RadChart for ASP.NET as a backup.
