Chart webpart SharePoint 2013


In this post we will discuss how to populate a chart web part from a SharePoint list. Here I am using chart web part in SharePoint 2013. Though Microsoft removed chart web part, you can check this work around to make chart web part available in SharePoint 2013.

Here I have a SharePoint list name as “Course” which has 5 columns and the data are like below:

Here I want to show a chart (bar) and want to see in Sharepoint 2013 how many trained, novice, intermediate and expert people. Similarly for SharePoint 2010, Asp.net and C#.Net skills.

For this first add a chart web part to the page (Edit Page -> INSERT -> Web Part). Once you will put the chart it will appear like below. Save the page.

After that click on Data & Appearance. Then select Connect Chart To Data as shown in the fig below:

In the next step select “Connect to a List” in the Choose a Data Source section. Then click on Next.

In the next step select the site and the list in the drop down.

In the next step it will show you the list and the data. Click Next.

The 4th Step Bind Chart to Data is an important step. Follow below instruction. Here

In the Series expand (click on +) Series Properties. Enter name, here I am putting based on my column names. It should be like below:

Series Name: Trained
Series Type: StackedColumn (From the drop down select the column).
Y Field: Trained (Select Trained Column from drop down)
X Field: Title (Remember this will be same for all series)

So it will appear like below:

series properties chart web part sharepoint2013

series properties chart web part sharepoint2013

Then click on the + icon near series like below:

series properties add chart webpart sharepoint2013_6

series properties add chart webpart sharepoint2013_6

Here also fill the series details like below:

Series Name: Novice
Series Type: StackedColumn (From the drop down select the column).
Y Field: Novice (Select Novice Column from drop down)
X Field: Title (Remember this will be same for all series).

So it will be appear like below:

series properties chart webpart sharepoint2013_7

series properties chart webpart sharepoint2013_7

Add all based on the columns. Here I added 4 for each columns (Trained, Novice, Intermediate and Expert).

Then click on Finish.
