31 Jan 202414 minutes to read

This section briefly explains about how to include Blazor Smith Chart component in your Blazor Web App using Visual Studio.

Prerequisites

Create a new Blazor Web App

You can create a Blazor Web App using Visual Studio 2022 via Microsoft Templates or the Syncfusion Blazor Extension.

You need to configure the corresponding Interactive render mode and Interactivity location while creating a Blazor Web Application.

Install Syncfusion Blazor SmithChart NuGet in the App

To add Blazor Smith 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.SmithChart.

If you utilize WebAssembly or Auto render modes in the Blazor Web App need to be install Syncfusion Blazor components NuGet packages within the client project.

Alternatively, you can utilize the following package manager command to achieve the same.

Install-Package Syncfusion.Blazor.SmithChart -Version 24.2.3

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 Web App.

If you select an Interactive render mode as WebAssembly or Auto, you need to register the Syncfusion Blazor service in both ~/Program.cs files of your Blazor Web App.

....
using Syncfusion.Blazor;
....
builder.Services.AddSyncfusionBlazor();
....

Add script resources

The script can be accessed from NuGet through Static Web Assets. Include the script reference at the end of the <body> in the ~/Components/App.razor file as shown below:

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

NOTE

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

Add Syncfusion Blazor Smith Chart component

Add the Syncfusion Blazor Smith Chart component in the ~Pages/.razor file. If an interactivity location as Per page/component in the web app, define a render mode at the top of the ~Pages/.razor component, as follows:

@* desired render mode define here *@
@rendermode InteractiveAuto
<SfSmithchart>

</SfSmithchart>

Adding series to Blazor Smith Chart

Smith Chart series can be added in two ways. Use either Points or Datasource in the SmithChartSeries.

If you add using Datasource property, additionally you need to specify data source mapping fields using Reactance and Resistance properties.

If you are using Points, you don’t need to specify mapping fields as like in DataSource. But the Points collection should be SmithChartPoint type and define Resistance and Reactance properties mandatorily.

The following sample demonstrates adding two series to Smith Chart in both ways.

  • First series Transmission1 shows DataSource bound series.
  • Second series Transmission2 shows Points bound series.
<SfSmithChart>
    <SmithChartSeriesCollection>
        <SmithChartSeries Name="Transmission1"
                          Reactance="Reactance"
                          Resistance="Resistance"
                          DataSource="@FirstTransmissionSeries">
        </SmithChartSeries>
        <SmithChartSeries Name="Transmission2"
                          Points="@SecondTransmissionSeries">
        </SmithChartSeries>
    </SmithChartSeriesCollection>
</SfSmithChart>

@code {
    public class SmithDataSource
    {
        public double Resistance { get; set; }
        public double Reactance { get; set; }
    };
    public List<SmithDataSource> FirstTransmissionSeries = new List<SmithDataSource> {
        new SmithDataSource { Resistance= 10, Reactance= 25 },
        new SmithDataSource { Resistance= 8, Reactance= 6 },
        new SmithDataSource { Resistance= 6, Reactance= 4.5 },
        new SmithDataSource { Resistance= 4.5, Reactance= 2 },
        new SmithDataSource { Resistance= 3.5, Reactance= 1.6 },
        new SmithDataSource { Resistance= 2.5, Reactance= 1.3 },
        new SmithDataSource { Resistance= 2, Reactance= 1.2 },
        new SmithDataSource { Resistance= 1.5, Reactance= 1 },
        new SmithDataSource { Resistance= 1, Reactance= 0.8 },
        new SmithDataSource { Resistance= 0.5, Reactance= 0.4 },
        new SmithDataSource { Resistance= 0.3, Reactance= 0.2 },
        new SmithDataSource { Resistance= 0.001, Reactance= 0.15 }
    };
    public List<SmithChartPoint> SecondTransmissionSeries = new List<SmithChartPoint> {
        new SmithChartPoint { Resistance= 20, Reactance= -50 },
        new SmithChartPoint { Resistance= 10, Reactance= -10 },
        new SmithChartPoint { Resistance= 9, Reactance= -4.5 },
        new SmithChartPoint { Resistance= 8, Reactance= -3.5 },
        new SmithChartPoint { Resistance= 7, Reactance= -2.5 },
        new SmithChartPoint { Resistance= 6, Reactance= -1.5 },
        new SmithChartPoint { Resistance= 5, Reactance= -1 },
        new SmithChartPoint { Resistance= 4.5, Reactance= -0.5 },
        new SmithChartPoint { Resistance= 2, Reactance= 0.5 },
        new SmithChartPoint { Resistance= 1.5, Reactance= 0.4 },
        new SmithChartPoint { Resistance= 1, Reactance= 0.4 },
        new SmithChartPoint { Resistance= 0.5, Reactance= 0.2 },
        new SmithChartPoint { Resistance= 0.3, Reactance= 0.1 },
        new SmithChartPoint { Resistance= 0.001, Reactance= 0.05 }
    };
}

Press Ctrl+F5 (Windows) or +F5 (macOS) to launch the application. This will render the Syncfusion Blazor Smith Chart component in your default web browser.

    <SmithChartSeriesCollection>
        <SmithChartSeries Name="Transmission1"
