ChartSerializer.Load Method (TextReader)

Loads serialized data into the control from a reader object that derives from the TextReader class.

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

public void Load(
	TextReader reader


Type: System.IO.TextReader
A reader, such as StringReader, that is derived from the abstract TextReader class.

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

When a load operation occurs, by default the serializable properties are 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. By setting the Content, SerializableContent or NonSerializableContent properties, a specific set of properties can be loaded.

If you use this definition, note that the format, which is set by the Format property, must be XML.

If the ViewStateData property of the Chart control is used to persist state, this method can be used to load the serialized data that is posted by the client back to the Chart control.
