I'm in the middle of building an application. Can we save the chart as an image? Or is there any workaround?

Hi Jestin,

Currently we do not have support to save the chart as an image in Xamarin.Forms, also we have logged this in our feature management system, this feature will be available in any of our upcoming release. We are trying for a feasible workaround to achieve your requirement and we will update you the status in one business day  (2nd Jan 2015).

Hi Jestin,

We are glad to let you know that we have achieved your requirement by a workaround. Please find the workaround sample from the following attachment, in the sample, we have written custom renderer for each platform to save the chart as an image. You can save the image by using SaveImage method in CustomChart class.  However, as we informed earlier we will provide this support in control level in any of our upcoming releases.

Please find the sample in the below location: 



Please let us know if you require further assistance on this.

Hi Dnyani,

Thanks for using Syncfusion products,

We have analyzed the reported issue and we are not able to reproduce the issue in our side. Could you please provide some more information about this issue like version of Xamarin.Forms, version of Syncfusion Xamarin Studio, and device name. Also in Vol 1 2015 release(13.1451.0.26), we have provided this support in control level, you can use the following code snippet to save the chart as an image,


Please let us know if you require further assistance on this.

Hi, using latest ver of Xamarin Forms and SyncFusion, why does SaveAsImage() do nothing in UWP? Would be ideal if GetStream() worked but it states in documentation that's only available for Android and iOS...please help.

Hi Mark, 
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion Support. 
We have achieved your requirement by using CustomRenderer with ChartDependencyService for UWP. We have prepared a demo sample based on this requirement and it can be downloaded from below link,
