Silverlight doesn't support any database providers. You need to get the data using a web service or wcf service. This data willbe put in a data model and will be binded to silverlight chart control.

I have created the service but I need help with the binding to the chart.  I can bind it to a datagrid but not a chart.

e.Result has a property Observation and LEI_Index? Try binding the itemsource or datacontext of toolkit:chart control.
