ChartSerializer.Load Method (String)

Loads serialized data saved to disk into the Chart control.

Namespace:  System.Web.UI.DataVisualization.Charting
Assembly:  System.Web.DataVisualization (in System.Web.DataVisualization.dll)

public void Load(
	string fileName


Type: System.String
The relative or absolute path of the file used to store the serialized data. If a relative path is specified, the path will be relative to the current directory.

Call this method to load serialized data into the Chart control.

When a load operation occurs, serializable properties are, by default, first reset to their default values before they are set to the persisted values, if saved. To change this behavior, use the IsResetWhenLoading property.

By default, all serialized chart properties will be loaded. To load specific serialized properties, set the Content , SerializableContent or NonSerializableContent properties before loading the data.

Note that when data is saved using a Save method, only those properties that have non-default values are actually serialized.
