I want to soft code the "SeriesType.Bar" of javascript code to paint the bar chart.
I want to assign value to ".Series(sr =>.Type())" from controller using viewbag.

How I can typecast a string value to SeriesType. something to plot either a "Column" or "bar" chart.

Hi Kalpa,

Thanks for using Syncfusion product.

We have analyzed this. This can be done by following the below steps.

1.       Pass the type of the chart to be rendered in controller through viewbag.


        public ActionResult ChartFeatures()


            ViewBag.type = "spline"; // passed the chart series type

            return View();


2.       Trigger load event of chart







3.       Covert the value from viewbag to use it in JS


   var seriesType = @Html.Raw(Json.Encode(ViewBag.type)); // Converts the value to use it in JS

4.       Code the method, to assign the value passed in viewbag to chart on load


                     function  onchartload(sender) {

            sender.model.series[0].type = seriesType; // assign it to chart seriestype


The below screen shot shows the output of the attached sample.

We have also made a sample to illustrate this. Find it from the below location.


Please let us know if you have any concern.
