This section briefly explains about how to include Blazor Bullet Chart component in your Blazor Server App and Blazor WebAssembly App using Visual Studio. To get start quickly with Bullet Chart Component using Blazor, you can check on this video or GitHub sample:

Prerequisites

Create a new Blazor App in Visual Studio

You can create a Blazor Server App or Blazor WebAssembly App using Visual Studio via Microsoft Templates or the Syncfusion Blazor Extension.

Install Syncfusion Blazor Bullet Chart NuGet in the App

To add Blazor Bullet Chart component in the app, open the NuGet package manager in Visual Studio (Tools → NuGet Package Manager → Manage NuGet Packages for Solution), search and install Syncfusion.Blazor.BulletChart. Alternatively, you can utilize the following package manager command to achieve the same.

Install-Package Syncfusion.Blazor.BulletChart -Version 26.1.35

NOTE

Syncfusion Blazor components are available in nuget.org. Refer to NuGet packages topic for available NuGet packages list with component details.

Register Syncfusion Blazor Service

Open ~/_Imports.razor file and import the Syncfusion.Blazor and Syncfusion.Blazor.Charts namespace.

@using Syncfusion.Blazor
@using Syncfusion.Blazor.Charts

Now, register the Syncfusion Blazor Service in the ~/Program.cs file of your Blazor Server App or Blazor WebAssembly App.

using Microsoft.AspNetCore.Components;
using Microsoft.AspNetCore.Components.Web;
using Syncfusion.Blazor;

var builder = WebApplication.CreateBuilder(args);

// Add services to the container.
builder.Services.AddRazorPages();
builder.Services.AddServerSideBlazor();
builder.Services.AddSyncfusionBlazor();

var app = builder.Build();
....
using Microsoft.AspNetCore.Components.Web;
using Microsoft.AspNetCore.Components.WebAssembly.Hosting;
using Syncfusion.Blazor;

var builder = WebAssemblyHostBuilder.CreateDefault(args);
builder.RootComponents.Add<App>("#app");
builder.RootComponents.Add<HeadOutlet>("head::after");

builder.Services.AddScoped(serviceProvider => new HttpClient { BaseAddress = new Uri(builder.HostEnvironment.BaseAddress) });

builder.Services.AddSyncfusionBlazor();
await builder.Build().RunAsync();
....

Add script resources

The script can be accessed through Static Web Assets. Reference the script in the <head> of the main page as follows:

  • For .NET 6 Blazor Server app, include it in ~/Pages/_Layout.cshtml file.

  • For .NET 7 Blazor Server app, include it in the ~/Pages/_Host.cshtml file.

  • For Blazor WebAssembly app, include it in the ~/index.html file.

<head>
    ....
    <script src="_content/Syncfusion.Blazor.Core/scripts/syncfusion-blazor.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
</head>

NOTE

Check out the Adding Script Reference topic to learn different approaches for adding script references in your Blazor application.

Add Blazor Bullet Chart component

Add the Syncfusion Blazor Bullet Chart component in the ~/Pages/Index.razor file.

<SfBulletChart DataSource="@BulletChartData" ValueField="FieldValue" TargetField="TargetValue" Minimum="0" Maximum="300" Interval="50">
</SfBulletChart>

@code{
    public class ChartData
    {
        public double FieldValue { get; set; }
        public double TargetValue { get; set; }
    }
    public List<ChartData> BulletChartData = new List<ChartData>
    {
        new ChartData { FieldValue = 270, TargetValue = 250 }
    };
}
  • Press Ctrl+F5 (Windows) or +F5 (macOS) to launch the application. This will render the Syncfusion Blazor Bullet Chart component in your default web browser.

Adding title

Add a title by using the Title property in the Bullet Chart to provide quick information to the user about the data plotted in the component.

<SfBulletChart DataSource="@BulletChartData" ValueField="FieldValue" TargetField="TargetValue" Minimum="0" Maximum="300" Interval="50" Title="Revenue">
</SfBulletChart>

Adding ranges

Add ranges by using the BulletChartRangeCollection to measure the qualitative state by observing the distance between each range.

<SfBulletChart DataSource="@BulletChartData" ValueField="FieldValue" TargetField="TargetValue" Minimum="0" Maximum="300" Interval="50" Title="Revenue">
    <BulletChartRangeCollection>
        <BulletChartRange End=150> </BulletChartRange>
        <BulletChartRange End=250></BulletChartRange>
        <BulletChartRange End=300></BulletChartRange>
    </BulletChartRangeCollection>
</SfBulletChart>

Use the tooltip to show the measured values by setting the Enable property to true in the BulletChartTooltip.

<SfBulletChart DataSource="@BulletChartData" ValueField="FieldValue" TargetField="TargetValue" Minimum="0" Maximum="300" Interval="50" Title="Revenue">
    <BulletChartTooltip TValue="ChartData" Enable="true"></BulletChartTooltip>
    <BulletChartRangeCollection>
        <BulletChartRange End=150> </BulletChartRange>
        <BulletChartRange End=250></BulletChartRange>
        <BulletChartRange End=300></BulletChartRange>
    </BulletChartRangeCollection>
</SfBulletChart>
