Advanced Data Visualization with Grid Charting

Smart.Chart integration with Smart.Grid

The next version of Smart Web Components will bring integrated charting functionality that allows users to chart directly inside the Grid Web Component. We are happy to announce that Smart Grid is the First Enterprise Grid with such feature available.

The charting is implemented through our Smart.Chart Web Component and is using the grid data source. Charts can be exported to .PDF, .PNG of .JPEG.

There are two approaches to create a Chart.

  • Create a Chart by using the Grid's selection. Smart.Grid supports several selection modes - selection by cells like in Spreadsheets, columns and rows selection.
  • Create a Chart by using the Grid and Chart API. This solution allows us to use the full data set.


The charting used in the Grid and Chart integration is our own-made Smart.Chart component. Smart.Chart is a Web Component built through the Smart Framework and is based on the broadly used jQWidgets Charting solution. It does not have any third-party dependencies. It is created by our own Team as all other UI components in our package.

Grid and Chart Integration

Chart Toolbar

The Toolbar with Charting options is displayed in the Grid header. By clicking a Chart Type, the Grid will create it.

To create Charts, users will need to import the Smart.Grid, Smart.Chart and Smart.Window modules and enable the Charting in the Grid.

Charts are displayed in our Smart.Window component. You can resize it, maximize it, move it, change its header position, stick it to screen edge, minimize it or just collapse it. Smart.Window is designed to be the most feature-complete Dialog component. It can be either modal or non-modal.
