Dynamically configure the chart from a configuration file

Hi,

I'm trying to write a generic charting service based on ChartFX 7. All configuration data are stored in the configuration file and being read into a Template. Before I bind the data into the chart control, I apply those configuration settings from template.

Something like those:

Chart.Height = template.BaseHeight;

Chart.Width = template.BaseWidth;

Chart.ToolBar.Visible = template.ToolBar;

My question is if I make the XML configuration file exactly like the property structure of Chartfx attributes, Can I dynamically bind data without explicitly indicate the properties, such as Chart.Height, Chart.Width etc?  In other words, to separate the hardcode of binding settings into a predefined XML file.

<Chart Name="Benzene">

<Height>239</Height>

<Width>345</Width>

<ToolBar>

 <Visible>True</Visible>

</ToolBar>

</Chart>

Thanks
