Showing a chart at design time

While I have successfully displayed charts at run-time, I have not been able to see these charts plot data at design time. This makes it very difficult to design the "engaging user experiences" I am looking to create.

Other controls and charting frameworks do display the data at design time (i.e. I bind the source collection to an ItemsControl or Modern UI charts and can see the information/chart at design time). Is this possible in Syncfusion's Chart control?

Hi Lan,

Thanks for using Syncfusion products.

We have analyzed your query and in order to render the chart in designer view, we need to set DataContext in XAML. We have prepared the sample based on your requirement. Please download the sample from the given below location.

Please let us know if you have any further assistance.

Hi all,

Is this example still available . . .I can't download it and I'm having the same issues.

Cheers, Leigh.
