    RadControls version

    .NET version

    Visual Studio version

    programming language

    To convert code

    Telerik Reporting offers a chart item for your data visualization needs. It uses the same engine as RadChart for ASP.NET AJAX control, so if you are familiar with it, you should get up to speed in no time. Its documentation, examples and forum threads are there for you whenever you are not sure about something.
    However if you have not worked with our chart before and you do not want to learn new chart or simply feel comfortable with the default asp:chart control (or any chart control for that matter), then you can still use it in a Telerik Report. You can save the image to a stream/image and show it inside our PictureBox item.

    A sample project showing the functionality at hand is attached to this thread.

    I was looking for getting the 3d effect for the chart. I found in the forum that there is no such facility in telerik reporting. We have to do that in aspchart.

    I checked the code in use aspchart in telerik reporting.
    But i didn't under stand howto do it.
    I first added a telerik reporting class library. report1.
    I dragged a picturebox.
    In the code behind report.cs I pasted the code which was given in the attachment.

     private void pictureBox1_ItemDataBinding(object sender, EventArgs e)
                System.Web.UI.DataVisualization.Charting.Chart chart1 = new System.Web.UI.DataVisualization.Charting.Chart();
                Series series = new Series("Spline");
                series.ChartType = SeriesChartType.Spline;
                ChartArea area = new ChartArea("ChartArea1");
                series.BorderWidth = 3;
                series.ShadowOffset = 2;

                // Populate new series with data

                // Add series into the chart's series collection
                MemoryStream ms = new MemoryStream();
                chart1.SaveImage(ms, ChartImageFormat.Png);
                Telerik.Reporting.Processing.PictureBox procPicturebox = (Telerik.Reporting.Processing.PictureBox)sender;
                procPicturebox.Image = Image.FromStream(ms);

    But the problem is I am not able to System.Web.UI.DataVisualization.Charting and also the Series.
    Am I correct in adding the TelerikReport Item to the class library or how should i proceed to get the 3d chart.

    Any example with would be appreciated.
    Urgent pls.

    Hi Pams,

    The attached sample in this thread is fully runnable. The only prerequisite if you are using Visual Studio 2008 is to install:
