For .aspx

For .cshtml

<script src="@Url.Content("//Scripts/fusioncharts/fusioncharts.js")></script>
  • Add a reference to the FusionCharts.DataEngine.dll and FusionCharts.Visualization.dll files into your ASP.NET project.

NuGet download

To use NuGet package, please run the following command in the NuGet Package Manage Console:

You can download the samples for FusionCharts.NET from here.

Configuring Export Handler

FusionCharts export handler gets automatically installed, once you install FusionCharts.Visualization NuGet package. However, in order to use it, you need to configure the following:

Starting v1.0.4, FusionCharts.NET Standard does not support Export Handler.

  • Make sure the PresentationCore and WindowsBase assemblies are referenced in your web project. These assemblies are automatically referenced when you install the NuGet package, but in case if they are not, you have to manually add them.

  • Add these dependencies into web.config:

<compilation targetFramework="4.5" >
        <add assembly="WindowsBase, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35" />
        <add assembly="PresentationCore, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35" />
  • Add the following line under <system.web> in web.config:
<httpRuntime targetFramework="4.5" requestValidationMode="2.0" />

    • FusionCharts.SharpVectors.Converters.dll
