In this article we will see how to implement DotNet Highcharts with Asp.Net MVC application.
Highcharts is a JavaScript library to implement charting functionality like line chart, bar chart, column chart etc. We can create different types of charts using highcharts. Today with this article, I will try to show you how to create Highcharts in Asp.Net MVC from server side.
We see the chart using ASP.NET MVC from the server side. Here, server-side means that everything will be created on the server and only the displaying part will happen at the client side. You can find more details on http://dotnet.highcharts.com/

Step-1: File New Project >> ASP .NET Web application

Choose MVC as application
Step-2: Install .NET Highcharts using Nuget Package Manger

You can isntall the package using Nuget Package manager Console also like below;
    Install-Package DotNet.Highcharts
Step-3: Now, it is time to create a chart using Highcharts. Therefore, for this demonstration, we will create a column chart that shows the "Best batting average in successful ODI run-chases".

Initialize the Chart
          Highcharts columnChart = new Highcharts("columnchart");  
           columnChart.InitChart(new Chart()  
             Type = DotNet.Highcharts.Enums.ChartTypes.Column,  
             Style = "fontWeight: 'bold', fontSize: '17px'",  
             BackgroundColor = new BackColorOrGradient(System.Drawing.Color.AliceBlue),  
             BorderColor = System.Drawing.Color.LightBlue,  
             BorderRadius = 0,  
             BorderWidth = 2  
Set Title, X-Axis and Y-Axis
    columnChart.SetTitle(new Title()  
             Text = "Best batting average in successful ODI run-chases"  
           columnChart.SetXAxis(new XAxis()  
             Type = AxisTypes.Category,  
             Title = new XAxisTitle() { Text = "Batsman", 
                Style = "fontWeight: 'bold', fontSize: '17px'" },  
             Categories = new[] { "MS Dhoni", "Virat Kohli", "Michael Bevan", "Dinesh Chandimal", "AB DE Villiers", "Joe Root", "Mike Hussy", "Michael Clarke", "Angelo Mathews", "Graham Thorpe" },  
           columnChart.SetYAxis(new YAxis()  
             Title = new YAxisTitle()  
               Text = "Average Wining Runs",  
               ShowFirstLabel = true,  
               ShowLastLabel = true,  
               Min = 0  
Step-4: Add the SeriesData to show the Chart like below
    columnChart.SetSeries(new Series[]  
             new Series{  
               Name = "Wining average",  
               Data = new Data(new object[] { 99.85,99.04,86.25,85.30,82.77,77.80,74.10,73.86,70.75,70.75  })  
Step-5: Change the "Index.cshtml" as like below
    <div class="row">  
         <div class="col-md-12 col-md-6">  
Step-6: Also make the change in "Layout.cshtml" like below, add the HighChart JS file.
    <script src="~/Scripts/Highcharts-4.0.1/js/highcharts.js"></script>
Step-7: All the changes has been changed, now run the application and see the output.
