Displaying data from N properties of a Business object in a Bar chart with N bars

As the title suggests, I have a business object that has a number of public properties on it, some of which I want to display in a Bar chart, and others I do not. The values of the properties I do want to display should be aggregated from the n series of business objects I hand to the chart's DataSource property, with the sum of each property displayed in a column in the Bar chart. Thus, if each instance of the business object has 3 properties I want to display, the Bar chart should have 3 columns.

The code I'm using is below. The issues I'm experiencing are that each series of data produces a new column in the bar chart, which is not what I want. The DisplayNames I specify for the FieldMaps are being ignored. Lastly, the property I don't want displayed, IrrelevantProperty, is being displayed.

Thanks for your support.

Hi again,

After moving things around a bit in my code, I found that it seems order is important, and also figured out some things about series and points. Now I am able to get the data from the properties I want and not show the ones I don't. Still, the FieldMap.DisplayName is being ignored.

Email[] emails = new Email[3];emails[0] = new Email(50, 12, 23, 99);emails[1] = new Email(30, 12, 23, 99);emails[2] = new Email(40, 2, 4, 99);chart4.DataSource = emails;chart4.Gallery = Gallery.Bar;chart4.DataSourceSettings.Fields.Clear();FieldMap fieldMap;fieldMap = new FieldMap();fieldMap.Name = "EmailSetSize";fieldMap.DisplayName = "Emails Sent";fieldMap.Usage = FieldUsage.XValue;chart4.DataSourceSettings.Fields.Add(fieldMap);fieldMap = new FieldMap();fieldMap.Name = "OptedOutSetSize";fieldMap.DisplayName = "Opt Outs";fieldMap.Usage = FieldUsage.XValue;chart4.DataSourceSettings.Fields.Add(fieldMap);fieldMap = new FieldMap();fieldMap.Name = "BadSetSize";fieldMap.DisplayName = "Bounces";fieldMap.Usage = FieldUsage.XValue;chart4.DataSourceSettings.Fields.Add(fieldMap);chart4.Data.Series = chart4.DataSourceSettings.Fields.Count;chart4.Data.Points = chart4.DataSourceSettings.Fields.Count;class Email{    private int emailSetSize;    public int EmailSetSize    {        get { return emailSetSize; }    }        private int badMailSetSize;    public int BadSetSize    {        get { return badMailSetSize; }    }    private int optedOutSetSize;    public int OptedOutSetSize    {        get { return optedOutSetSize; }    }    private int irrelevantProperty;    public int IrrelevantProperty    {        get { return irrelevantProperty; }    }    public Email(int emailSetSize, int badMailSetSize, int optedOutSetSize, int irrelevantProperty)    {        this.emailSetSize = emailSetSize;        this.badMailSetSize = badMailSetSize;        this.optedOutSetSize = optedOutSetSize;        this.irrelevantProperty = irrelevantProperty;    }}
