Hi Tom,

Thank you for choosing Syncfusion products.

Our Chart control can easily be saved as an image file in the specified format like Bitmap,Metafile, GIF, JPEG and etc.,

SaveImage method of the Chartcontrol helps you to save the chart as an Image in the Specified format. The following code illustrate this :

You can also convert the chart to metafile using following steps :

1)Create a new instance of the bitmap class with dimensions equal to that of the chart control''s dimension.
2)Create a new graphic object from the specified Image object.
3)Define a graphic metafile.
4)Use draw() method of chartControl to draw the image in specified size.

Please have a look at the attached sample which helps you to display the chart in metafile format using above steps.

Kindly let me know if you have any further questions.
