Hi Andrew,

I was trying to attach an export to file feature of the charts using a context menu
but even if in that instance i have the specific sciChartSurface object i am unable to find the ExportToFile method.

I have also read the following article but even so i havn’nt solved.

// Saving chart to file with specified file format

missing something ? maybe its not supported in my version and scenario ?

Thks for your attention

Kind regards

Hi Giuseppe,

Silverlight itself doens’t have the permissions to export to file. But I think you can render to a BitmapSource using the overload SciChartSurface.ExportToBitmapSource then either save (requires some clever hackery) or copy to clipboard (same).

Let me know if this helps,

Best regards,
