Hi Experts!

Trying to use MVC (Razor) with Chart Helper:

http://www.asp.net/web-pages/tutorials/data/7-displaying-data-in-a-chart

Have seen this example:
@{
    var db = Database.Open("SmallBakery");
    var data = db.Query("SELECT Name, Price FROM Product");
    var myChart = new Chart(width: 600, height: 400)
        .AddTitle("Product Sales")
        .DataBindTable(dataSource: data, xField: "Name")
        .Write();
}

Open in new window


Want to incoroprate LINQ so tried this and some:
@{
MyDB db = new MyDB();

var data = from p in db.Products
            select new
            {
                   Name,
		   Price
            };

var myChart = new Chart(width: 600, height: 400)
    .AddTitle("Product Sales")
    .AddSeries(chartType: "Pie",
        xValue: data, xField: "Name",
        yValues: data, yFields: "Price")
    .Write();
}

Open in new window


It spits out this error:
  Message=Specified method is not supported.
  Source=System.Data.Entity
  StackTrace:
       at System.Data.Common.Internal.Materialization.Shaper`1.SimpleEnumerator.Reset()
       at System.Web.UI.DataVisualization.Charting.DataPointCollection.DataBindXY(IEnumerable xValue, String xField, IEnumerable yValue, String yFields)
       at System.Web.Helpers.Chart.ApplySeries(Chart chart)
       at System.Web.Helpers.Chart.ExecuteChartAction(Action`1 action)
       at System.Web.Helpers.Chart.GetBytes(String format)
       at System.Web.Helpers.Chart.Write(String format)

Open in new window


Do you have an example or any ideas?

TIA!

Try changing your linq query as follows, so all the required data is preloaded before being ploted.

var data = (from p in db.Products
            select new
            {
                   Name,
		   Price
            }).ToList();
