Question: How can I make a bar-chart from this data?

Thank you.

On your toolbar select Data and add a chart to your project then bind it..

I followed the example in this video:


I guess, the video is suing a later version of visual studio and in the following code I run into a problem:

using (SqlDataSource1 dc = new SqlDataSource1())
                var v = dc.SqlDataSource1.Tolist();

                GridView1.DataSource = v;

                Chart1.DataSource = v;

Open in new window

In vs to generate data source (the video calls it data entity), I dragged and dropped the data table to create a grid-view as well as a data-set (datasource?).

I am stuck here. Do you see a way to make this compatible with vs 2010?

Thank you,

I can take a look at it when I get home this evening where I have VS2010, but they still use VS 2008 here at the client I am at today :(

SqlDataSource1 was not built properly. Now it is fixed.

Thanks you,
