Use expression in winform chart y Series RRS feed

  • Question

  • In my winform app ,

    1. i want to use chart from toolbox (instead of making on using RDLC report).
    2. Using two columns of my access database source (Size_in_mg , And count of "ID column")
    3. But in Y axis i want to use expression like =Count((Fields!Number.Value)) but the chart won't allow me to as it simply takes names of he column.
    4. i have tried searching in web but didn't find convincing result. So please share any link or share your knowledge so that i can learn

    Thank you for posting here.

    You can modify your SQL statement like this:

    SELECT COUNT(Id) count, Size_in_mg FROM Table1 GROUP BY Size_in_mg; 

                string connString = @"";
                using (SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection(connString))
                    using (SqlCommand command = new SqlCommand("SELECT COUNT(Id) count, Size_in_mg FROM Table1 GROUP BY Size_in_mg; ",conn))
                        SqlDataReader sqlDataReader = command.ExecuteReader();
                        chart1.Series[0].XValueMember = "Size_in_mg";
                        chart1.Series[0].YValueMembers = "count";
                        chart1.DataSource = sqlDataReader;


    Hope this could be helpful.
