Nevron .NET Vision Documentation
Integrating In WebForms

This topic describes the steps needed to create a simple ASP.NET Web Form application or Website project using the Nevron Chart ThinWeb control. 

1. Open Microsoft Visual Studio .NET.

2. On the File / New Project select "Visual C# projects" and then select "ASP .NET Web application" from the list on the right side.

3. Click OK.

4. If the current page view is Source, switch to Design.

5. Open the Toolbox. If it's not visible open it from the View\Toolbox menu item.

6. Locate the Nevron Chart Web Form tab and expand it.

7. Select "NThinChartControl" and drop it on the form.

8. Check whether the following assemblies are referenced by the project:

- Nevron.System
- Nevron.Presentation
- Nevron.ThinWeb
- Nevron.Chart
- Nevron.Chart.ThinWeb

9. Check if the following configuration xml exists in your web.config file:

Copy Code

  <add path="NThinChartControlHttpHandler.axd" verb="*" type="Nevron.Chart.ThinWeb.NThinChartControlHttpHandler" validate="false" />  
  <add path="NAspNetThinWebControlHttpHandler.axd" verb="*" type="Nevron.ThinWeb.NAspNetThinWebControlHttpHandler" validate="false" />


  <remove name="NThinChartControlHttpHandler" /> 
  <remove name="NAspNetThinWebControlHttpHandler" />
  <add name="NThinChartControlHttpHandler" preCondition="integratedMode" verb="*" path="NThinChartControlHttpHandler.axd" type="Nevron.Chart.ThinWeb.NThinChartControlHttpHandler" />
  <add name="NAspNetThinWebControlHttpHandler" preCondition="integratedMode" verb="*" path="NAspNetThinWebControlHttpHandler.axd" type="Nevron.ThinWeb.NAspNetThinWebControlHttpHandler" />


10. Open the source code for WebForm1.aspx - from the Solution explorer right click on Default.aspx and select "View code".

11. Modify the source code so that it looks like:

Copy Code

using System;
using Nevron.Chart;
using Nevron.Chart.ThinWeb;
using Nevron.GraphicsCore;
using Nevron.ThinWeb;

namespace WebApplication1
    public partial class _Default : System.Web.UI.Page
        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
            if (!NThinChartControl1.Initialized)
                // enable jittering (full scene antialiasing)
                NThinChartControl1.Settings.JitterMode = JitterMode.Enabled;
                NThinChartControl1.BackgroundStyle.FrameStyle.Visible = false;

                // by default the control contains a Cartesian chart -> remove it and create a Pie chart
                NChart chart = new NPieChart();

                // configure the chart
                chart.Enable3D = true;

                // add a pie serires
                NPieSeries pie = (NPieSeries)chart.Series.Add(SeriesType.Pie);
                pie.PieStyle = PieStyle.SmoothEdgePie;
                pie.PieEdgePercent = 50;
                pie.DataLabelStyle.Visible = false;

                pie.AddDataPoint(new NDataPoint(0, "Ships"));
                pie.AddDataPoint(new NDataPoint(0, "Trains"));
                pie.AddDataPoint(new NDataPoint(0, "Cars"));
                pie.AddDataPoint(new NDataPoint(0, "Buses"));
                pie.AddDataPoint(new NDataPoint(0, "Airplanes"));

                pie.Values.FillRandomRange(new Random(), pie.Values.Count, 1, 20);
                for (int i = 0; i < pie.Values.Count; i++)

                // apply style sheet
                NStyleSheet styleSheet = NStyleSheet.CreatePredefinedStyleSheet(PredefinedStyleSheet.NevronMultiColor);

                // configure the controller
                NServerMouseEventTool serverMouseEventTool = new NServerMouseEventTool();
                serverMouseEventTool.MouseDown = new NDetachPieSliceMouseEventCallback();

        class NDetachPieSliceMouseEventCallback : INMouseEventCallback
            #region INMouseEventCallback Members

            public void OnMouseEvent(NAspNetThinWebControl control, NBrowserMouseEventArgs e)
                NThinChartControl chartControl = (NThinChartControl)control;

                NPieChart pieChart = (NPieChart)chartControl.Charts[0];
                NHitTestResult hitTestResult = chartControl.HitTest(e.X, e.Y);

                int dataPointIndex = hitTestResult.DataPointIndex;

                // collapse all pie slices
                NPieSeries pieSeries = (NPieSeries)pieChart.Series[0];
                for (int i = 0; i < pieSeries.Values.Count; i++)
                    pieSeries.Detachments[i] = 0;

                // expand the one that's hit
                if (dataPointIndex != -1)
                    pieSeries.Detachments[dataPointIndex] = 5.0f;

 12. Start the application - the page must display a clickable pie chart.
