About the chart controls in the SilverLight 5 Toolkit

As a follow up of blog post https://sharepointdragons.com/2011/12/08/building-a-silverlight-chart-web-part-for-sharepoint-2010/, we’ll provide code examples of the various chart controls that can be found in the SilverLight 5 Toolkit. Repeat the same steps as described in the aforementioned blog post, but change this:

Building a Scatter chart

In MainPage.xaml, add a chart:

<toolkit:Chart HorizontalAlignment=”Left” Margin=”8,30,-295,0″ Title=”Chart Title” Name=”chart1″ VerticalAlignment=”Top” Height=”270″ Width=”687″>
</toolkit:Chart>

What makes this type of chart different from the regular chart is that you don’t create one or more ColumnSeries, instead you’re adding ScatterSeries:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Net;
using System.Windows;
using System.Windows.Controls;
using System.Windows.Controls.DataVisualization.Charting;
using System.Windows.Data;
using System.Windows.Documents;
using System.Windows.Input;
using System.Windows.Media;
using System.Windows.Media.Animation;
using System.Windows.Shapes;

namespace SilverRadar
{
public partial class MainPage : UserControl
{
public MainPage()
{
InitializeComponent();

List<DayDto> days = new List<DayDto>()
{
new DayDto() { Day = “Mon”, NumberOfVisitors = 10 },
new DayDto() { Day = “Tue”, NumberOfVisitors = 8 },
new DayDto() { Day = “Wed”, NumberOfVisitors = 3 },
new DayDto() { Day = “Thu”, NumberOfVisitors = 7 },
new DayDto() { Day = “Fri”, NumberOfVisitors = 4 },
new DayDto() { Day = “Sat”, NumberOfVisitors = 3 },
new DayDto() { Day = “Sun”, NumberOfVisitors = 1 },
};

List<DayDto> days2 = new List<DayDto>()
{
new DayDto() { Day = “Mon”, NumberOfVisitors = 12 },
new DayDto() { Day = “Tue”, NumberOfVisitors = 5 },
new DayDto() { Day = “Wed”, NumberOfVisitors = 4 },
new DayDto() { Day = “Thu”, NumberOfVisitors = 6 },
new DayDto() { Day = “Fri”, NumberOfVisitors = 5 },
new DayDto() { Day = “Sat”, NumberOfVisitors = 2 },
new DayDto() { Day = “Sun”, NumberOfVisitors = 0 },
};

chart1.Title = “Visitors/days of week in Scatters”;
chart1.BorderThickness = new Thickness(10);

var b1 = new ScatterSeries();
b1.Name = “days”;
b1.Title = “Visitors of web site 1/Days of the Week”;
b1.IsSelectionEnabled = true;
b1.ItemsSource = days;
b1.IndependentValueBinding = new Binding(“Day”);
b1.DependentValueBinding = new Binding(“NumberOfVisitors”);

chart1.Series.Add(b1);

var b2 = new ScatterSeries();
b2.Name = “days2”;
b2.Title = “Visitors of web site 2/Days of the Week”;
b2.IsSelectionEnabled = true;
b2.ItemsSource = days2;
b2.IndependentValueBinding = new Binding(“Day”);
b2.DependentValueBinding = new Binding(“NumberOfVisitors”);

chart1.Series.Add(b2);
}
}

public class DayDto
{
public string Day { get; set; }
public int NumberOfVisitors { get; set; }
}
}

The end result:

Building a Line chart

In MainPage.xaml, add a chart:

<toolkit:Chart HorizontalAlignment=”Left” Margin=”8,30,-295,0″ Title=”Chart Title” Name=”chart1″ VerticalAlignment=”Top” Height=”270″ Width=”687″>
</toolkit:Chart>

What makes this type of chart different from the regular chart is that you don’t create one or more ColumnSeries, instead you’re adding LineSeries:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Net;
using System.Windows;
using System.Windows.Controls;
using System.Windows.Controls.DataVisualization.Charting;
using System.Windows.Data;
using System.Windows.Documents;
using System.Windows.Input;
using System.Windows.Media;
using System.Windows.Media.Animation;
using System.Windows.Shapes;

namespace SilverRadar
{
public partial class MainPage : UserControl
{
public MainPage()
{
InitializeComponent();

List<DayDto> days = new List<DayDto>()
{
new DayDto() { Day = “Mon”, NumberOfVisitors = 10 },
new DayDto() { Day = “Tue”, NumberOfVisitors = 8 },
new DayDto() { Day = “Wed”, NumberOfVisitors = 3 },
new DayDto() { Day = “Thu”, NumberOfVisitors = 7 },
new DayDto() { Day = “Fri”, NumberOfVisitors = 4 },
new DayDto() { Day = “Sat”, NumberOfVisitors = 3 },
new DayDto() { Day = “Sun”, NumberOfVisitors = 1 },
};

List<DayDto> days2 = new List<DayDto>()
{
new DayDto() { Day = “Mon”, NumberOfVisitors = 12 },
new DayDto() { Day = “Tue”, NumberOfVisitors = 5 },
new DayDto() { Day = “Wed”, NumberOfVisitors = 4 },
new DayDto() { Day = “Thu”, NumberOfVisitors = 6 },
new DayDto() { Day = “Fri”, NumberOfVisitors = 5 },
new DayDto() { Day = “Sat”, NumberOfVisitors = 2 },
new DayDto() { Day = “Sun”, NumberOfVisitors = 0 },
};

chart1.Title = “Visitors/days of week in Lines”;
chart1.BorderThickness = new Thickness(10);

var b1 = new LineSeries();
b1.Name = “days”;
b1.Title = “Visitors of web site 1/Days of the Week”;
b1.IsSelectionEnabled = true;
b1.ItemsSource = days;
b1.IndependentValueBinding = new Binding(“Day”);
b1.DependentValueBinding = new Binding(“NumberOfVisitors”);

chart1.Series.Add(b1);

var b2 = new LineSeries();
b2.Name = “days2”;
b2.Title = “Visitors of web site 2/Days of the Week”;
b2.IsSelectionEnabled = true;
b2.ItemsSource = days2;
b2.IndependentValueBinding = new Binding(“Day”);
b2.DependentValueBinding = new Binding(“NumberOfVisitors”);

chart1.Series.Add(b2);
}
}

public class DayDto
{
public string Day { get; set; }
public int NumberOfVisitors { get; set; }
}
}

Building a Column chart

In MainPage.xaml, add a chart:

<toolkit:Chart HorizontalAlignment=”Left” Margin=”8,30,-295,0″ Title=”Chart Title” Name=”chart1″ VerticalAlignment=”Top” Height=”270″ Width=”687″>
</toolkit:Chart>

The regular chart: you have to create one or more ColumnSeries:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Net;
using System.Windows;
using System.Windows.Controls;
using System.Windows.Controls.DataVisualization.Charting;
using System.Windows.Data;

using System.Windows.Input;
using System.Windows.Media;
using System.Windows.Media.Animation;
using System.Windows.Shapes;

namespace SilverRadar
{
public partial class MainPage : UserControl
{
public MainPage()
{
InitializeComponent();

List<DayDto> days = new List<DayDto>()
{
new DayDto() { Day = “Mon”, NumberOfVisitors = 10 },
new DayDto() { Day = “Tue”, NumberOfVisitors = 8 },
new DayDto() { Day = “Wed”, NumberOfVisitors = 3 },
new DayDto() { Day = “Thu”, NumberOfVisitors = 7 },
new DayDto() { Day = “Fri”, NumberOfVisitors = 4 },
new DayDto() { Day = “Sat”, NumberOfVisitors = 3 },
new DayDto() { Day = “Sun”, NumberOfVisitors = 1 },
};

List<DayDto> days2 = new List<DayDto>()
{
new DayDto() { Day = “Mon”, NumberOfVisitors = 12 },
new DayDto() { Day = “Tue”, NumberOfVisitors = 5 },
new DayDto() { Day = “Wed”, NumberOfVisitors = 4 },
new DayDto() { Day = “Thu”, NumberOfVisitors = 6 },
new DayDto() { Day = “Fri”, NumberOfVisitors = 5 },
new DayDto() { Day = “Sat”, NumberOfVisitors = 2 },
new DayDto() { Day = “Sun”, NumberOfVisitors = 0 },
};

chart1.Title = “Visitors/days of week in Columns”;
chart1.BorderThickness = new Thickness(10);

var b1 = new ColumnSeries();
b1.Name = “days”;
b1.Title = “Visitors of web site 1/Days of the Week”;
b1.IsSelectionEnabled = true;
b1.ItemsSource = days;
b1.IndependentValueBinding = new Binding(“Day”);
b1.DependentValueBinding = new Binding(“NumberOfVisitors”);

chart1.Series.Add(b1);

var b2 = new ColumnSeries();
b2.Name = “days2”;
b2.Title = “Visitors of web site 2/Days of the Week”;
b2.IsSelectionEnabled = true;
b2.ItemsSource = days2;
b2.IndependentValueBinding = new Binding(“Day”);
b2.DependentValueBinding = new Binding(“NumberOfVisitors”);

chart1.Series.Add(b2);
}
}

public class DayDto
{
public string Day { get; set; }
public int NumberOfVisitors { get; set; }
}
}

var b1 = new BarSeries();
b1.Name = “days”;
b1.Title = “Visitors of web site 1/Days of the Week”;
b1.IsSelectionEnabled = true;
b1.ItemsSource = days;

Building a Line chart with custom linear axis

In MainPage.xaml, add a chart:

<toolkit:Chart HorizontalAlignment=”Left” Margin=”8,30,-295,0″ Title=”Chart Title” Name=”chart1″ VerticalAlignment=”Top” Height=”270″ Width=”687″>
</toolkit:Chart>

What makes this type of chart different from the regular chart is that you’re adding a LinearAxis:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Net;
using System.Windows;
using System.Windows.Controls;
using System.Windows.Controls.DataVisualization.Charting;
using System.Windows.Data;
using System.Windows.Documents;
using System.Windows.Input;
using System.Windows.Media;
using System.Windows.Media.Animation;
using System.Windows.Shapes;

namespace SilverRadar
{
public partial class MainPage : UserControl
{
public MainPage()
{
InitializeComponent();

List<DayDto> days = new List<DayDto>()
{
new DayDto() { Day = “Mon”, NumberOfVisitors = 10 },
new DayDto() { Day = “Tue”, NumberOfVisitors = 8 },
new DayDto() { Day = “Wed”, NumberOfVisitors = 3 },
new DayDto() { Day = “Thu”, NumberOfVisitors = 7 },
new DayDto() { Day = “Fri”, NumberOfVisitors = 4 },
new DayDto() { Day = “Sat”, NumberOfVisitors = 3 },
new DayDto() { Day = “Sun”, NumberOfVisitors = 1 },
};

chart1.Title = “Visitors/days of week in Linear Axis”;

var b1 = new LineSeries();
b1.Name = “days”;
b1.Title = “Visitors of web site 1/Days of the Week”;
b1.ItemsSource = days;
b1.IndependentValueBinding = new Binding(“Day”);
b1.DependentValueBinding = new Binding(“NumberOfVisitors”);

chart1.Series.Add(b1);

var la1 = new LinearAxis();
la1.Orientation = AxisOrientation.Y;
la1.Minimum = 0;
la1.Maximum = 20;
la1.Interval = 2;

chart1.Axes.Add(la1);
}
}

public class DayDto
{
public string Day { get; set; }
public int NumberOfVisitors { get; set; }
}
}

Building a Line chart with custom datetime axis

In MainPage.xaml, add a chart:

<toolkit:Chart HorizontalAlignment=”Left” Margin=”8,30,-295,0″ Title=”Chart Title” Name=”chart1″ VerticalAlignment=”Top” Height=”270″ Width=”687″>
</toolkit:Chart>

What makes this type of chart different from the regular chart is that you’re adding a DateTimeAxis:

new DayDto() { Date = DateTime.Now.AddDays(-7), NumberOfVisitors = 6 },
new DayDto() { Date = DateTime.Now.AddDays(-9), NumberOfVisitors = 5 },
new DayDto() { Date = DateTime.Now.AddDays(-20), NumberOfVisitors = 2 },
new DayDto() { Date = DateTime.Now, NumberOfVisitors = 0 },
};

chart1.Title = “Visitors/dates in Linear Axis with DateTime Axis”;

var b1 = new LineSeries();
b1.Name = “days”;
b1.Title = “Visitors of web site 1/Date of the Week”;
b1.ItemsSource = days3;

Building a Line chart with custom category axis

In MainPage.xaml, add a chart:

<toolkit:Chart HorizontalAlignment=”Left” Margin=”8,30,-295,0″ Title=”Chart Title” Name=”chart1″ VerticalAlignment=”Top” Height=”270″ Width=”687″>
</toolkit:Chart>

What makes this type of chart different from the regular chart is that you’re adding  a CategoryAxis:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Net;
using System.Windows;
using System.Windows.Controls;
using System.Windows.Controls.DataVisualization.Charting;

<toolkit:Chart HorizontalAlignment=”Left” Margin=”8,30,-295,0″ Title=”Chart Title” Name=”chart1″ VerticalAlignment=”Top” Height=”270″ Width=”687″>
</toolkit:Chart>

What makes this type of chart different from the regular chart is that you don’t create one or more ColumnSeries, instead you’re adding SeriesDefinitions:
