Add Data Labels for charts in a cshtml file RRS feed

  • Question

  • User325035487 posted

    I am making a simple intranet application for support requests using razor cstml. Data is stored in an access database.

    For report i make use of instructions in http://www.asp.net/web-pages/tutorials/data/7-displaying-data-in-a-chart to generate charts.

    I use this code to generate the chart which is working fine. But I cant figure out how to display the data label for each column. Can some one help me. I am a beginner.

    @using System.Data;
                var db = Database.Open("mainreq");
            var months = Request["month"];
            if (User.IsInRole(@"DOMAIN\Request Admin"))
             var sql="";
            var sql_average = "SELECT * FROM Request_Avg  WHERE MONTH=@0 ORDER BY month";
            var average_data = db.Query(sql_average,months); 
    <div class="charts">
            string theme ="<Chart>\r\n <ChartAreas>\r\n <ChartArea Name=\"Default\" _Template_=\"All\">\r\n <AxisX Interval=\"1\" />\r\n  </ChartArea>\r\n </ChartAreas>\r\n <Legends>\r\n <Legend _Template_=\"All\" Alignment=\"Center\" BackColor=\"Transparent\" Docking=\"Bottom\" Font=\"Trebuchet MS, 8.25pt, style=Bold\" IsTextAutoFit =\"False\" LegendStyle=\"Row\">\r\n </Legend>\r\n </Legends>\r\n <BorderSkin SkinStyle=\"Emboss\" />\r\n</Chart>";
            var myChart = new Chart(width: 600, height: 400, theme: theme)
            .AddTitle("Average Response Time for Requests")
            .AddSeries("Days", chartType: "StackedColumn",
                xValue: average_data, xField: "category",
                yValues: average_data, yFields: "Average")

    If you need I am happy to provide additional information. thanks.

    Hi jkjhse,

    Do you want to add the real data of each column?

    Base on the Chart class, I did the test, but failed to find the solution.

    There is the Chart Class that may benefit you:

    # Chart Class



    Best Regards

    I am still searching for an answer and found one for MVC3 Razor.. How to adapt this to ASP Web Pages Razor


    //I did it by using the System.Web.UI.DataVisualization.Charting.Chart class.
    //Here is the code in my Controller:
    public ActionResult Chart()
        Chart chart = new Chart();
        chart.ChartAreas.Add(new ChartArea());
        chart.Series.Add(new Series("Data"));
        chart.Series["Data"].ChartType = SeriesChartType.Pie;
        chart.Series["Data"]["PieLabelStyle"] = "Outside"; 
        chart.Series["Data"]["PieLineColor"] = "Black";
            data.Select(data => data.Name.ToString()).ToArray(), 
            data.Select(data => data.Count).ToArray());
        //Other chart formatting and data source omitted.
        MemoryStream ms = new MemoryStream();
        chart.SaveImage(ms, ChartImageFormat.Png);
        return File(ms.ToArray(), "image/png");
    //And the View:
    <img alt="alternateText" src="@Url.Action("Chart")" />

    Working Solution for the guy who asked

            Chart chart = new Chart();
            chart.ChartAreas.Add(new ChartArea());
            chart.Series.Add(new Series("Data"));
            chart.Legends.Add(new Legend("Stores"));
            chart.Series["Data"].ChartType = SeriesChartType.Pie;
            chart.Series["Data"]["PieLabelStyle"] = "Outside";
            chart.Series["Data"]["PieLineColor"] = "Black";
            for (int x = 0; x < viewModel.SalesInStorePerPaymentCollected.XValues.Length; x++)
               int ptIdx = chart.Series["Data"].Points.AddXY(
               DataPoint pt = chart.Series["Data"].Points[ptIdx];
               pt.LegendText = "#VALX: #VALY";
               pt.LegendUrl = "/Contact/Details/Hey";
            chart.Series["Data"].Label = "#PERCENT{P0}";
            chart.Series["Data"].Font = new Font("Segoe UI", 8.0f, FontStyle.Bold);
            chart.Series["Data"].ChartType = SeriesChartType.Pie;
            chart.Series["Data"]["PieLabelStyle"] = "Outside";
            chart.Series["Data"].Legend = "Stores";
            chart.Legends["Stores"].Docking = Docking.Bottom;
            var returnStream = new MemoryStream();
            chart.ImageType = ChartImageType.Png;
            returnStream.Position = 0;
            return new FileStreamResult(returnStream, "image/png");

    Can anyone please help me adapt it to asp chart helper...
