In this article we will learn how we can create some client side chart widgets with the data from SQL Server database. We use MVC architecture with Web API and Angular JS to fetch the data and do all the manipulations. I am creating this application in Visual Studio 2015. In this project we covers topic of how to use HighChart with Angular JS. You can always get the tips/tricks/blogs about these mentioned technologies from the links given below.

  • AngularJS Tips, Tricks, Blogs
  • MVC Tips, Tricks, Blogs
  • Web API Tips, Tricks, Blogs
  • Now we will go and create our application. I hope you will like this.

  • Background

    I am working now in a personal dashboard application in which I uses HighChart products for the chart integration. We can always load the chart widgets with server side data and Angular JS right? Here we will discuss that. We are going to create the preceding charts for our dashboard.

  • Pie Chart
  • Spline Chart
  • Bar Chart
  • Line Chart
  • Scatter Chart
  • Column Chart
  • Once we are done, this is how our applications output will be.

    Create a MVC application

    Click File-> New-> Project then select MVC application. From the following pop up we will select the template as empty and select the core references and folders for MVC.

    Before going to start the coding part, make sure that all the required extensions/references are installed. Below are the required things to start with.

  • Angular JS
  • jQuery
  • You can all the items mentioned above from NuGet. Right click on your project name and select Manage NuGet packages.

    Once you have installed those items, please make sure that all the items(jQuery, Angular JS files) are loaded in your scripts folder.

    Using the code

    As I have said before, we are going to use Angular JS for our client side operations, so it is better to create the Angular JS script files first right? Just to make sure that we have got all the required things :). For that, create a folder named Widget in script folder and right click -> Add -> New Item -> Select AngularJS Module and enter the module name -> Click Add.

    Follow the same procedure to create Angular JS factory and Angular JS controller. Yes, we have set everything to get started our coding. Now we will create a Web API controller and get the data from database in JSON format. Let’s start then.

    Create Web API Controller

    To create a Web API controller, just right click on your controller folder and click Add -> Controller -> Select Web API controller – Empty ( We will create our own actions later) -> Name the controller (Here I am giving the controller name as Widget).

    So our controller is ready, now we need to set up our database so that we can create Entity Model for our application later.

    Create a database

    The following query can be used to create a database in your SQL Server.

    USE [master]
    GO
    
    /****** Object:  Database [TrialsDB]    Script Date: 16-Mar-16 4:08:15 PM ******/
    CREATE DATABASE [TrialsDB]
     CONTAINMENT = NONE
     ON  PRIMARY 
    ( NAME = N'TrialsDB', FILENAME = N'C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL11.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\DATA\TrialsDB.mdf' , SIZE = 3072KB , MAXSIZE = UNLIMITED, FILEGROWTH = 1024KB )
     LOG ON 
    ( NAME = N'TrialsDB_log', FILENAME = N'C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL11.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\DATA\TrialsDB_log.ldf' , SIZE = 1024KB , MAXSIZE = 2048GB , FILEGROWTH = 10%)
    GO
    
    ALTER DATABASE [TrialsDB] SET COMPATIBILITY_LEVEL = 110
    GO
    
    IF (1 = FULLTEXTSERVICEPROPERTY('IsFullTextInstalled'))
    begin
    EXEC [TrialsDB].[dbo].[sp_fulltext_database] @action = 'enable'
    end
    GO
    
    ALTER DATABASE [TrialsDB] SET ANSI_NULL_DEFAULT OFF 
    GO
    
    ALTER DATABASE [TrialsDB] SET ANSI_NULLS OFF 
    GO
    
    ALTER DATABASE [TrialsDB] SET ANSI_PADDING OFF 
    GO
    
    ALTER DATABASE [TrialsDB] SET ANSI_WARNINGS OFF

    ALTER DATABASE [TrialsDB] SET AUTO_UPDATE_STATISTICS_ASYNC OFF 
    GO
    
    ALTER DATABASE [TrialsDB] SET DATE_CORRELATION_OPTIMIZATION OFF 
    GO
    
    ALTER DATABASE [TrialsDB] SET TRUSTWORTHY OFF 
    GO
    
    ALTER DATABASE [TrialsDB] SET ALLOW_SNAPSHOT_ISOLATION OFF 
    GO
    
    ALTER DATABASE [TrialsDB] SET PARAMETERIZATION SIMPLE 
    GO
    
    ALTER DATABASE [TrialsDB] SET READ_COMMITTED_SNAPSHOT OFF 
    GO
    
    ALTER DATABASE [TrialsDB] SET HONOR_BROKER_PRIORITY OFF 
    GO
    
    ALTER DATABASE [TrialsDB] SET RECOVERY FULL 
    GO
    
    ALTER DATABASE [TrialsDB] SET  MULTI_USER

    ALTER DATABASE [TrialsDB] SET PAGE_VERIFY CHECKSUM  
    GO
    
    ALTER DATABASE [TrialsDB] SET DB_CHAINING OFF 
    GO
    
    ALTER DATABASE [TrialsDB] SET FILESTREAM( NON_TRANSACTED_ACCESS = OFF ) 
    GO
    
    ALTER DATABASE [TrialsDB] SET TARGET_RECOVERY_TIME = 0 SECONDS 
    GO
    
    ALTER DATABASE [TrialsDB] SET  READ_WRITE 
    GO
    

    Now we will create the tables we needed. As of now I am going to create two tables.

  • SalesOrderDetail
  • Product
  • These tables are having relationship by the key ProductID.

    Create tables in database

    Below is the query to create SalesOrderDetail table in database.

    USE [TrialsDB]
    GO
    
    /****** Object:  Table [dbo].[SalesOrderDetail]    Script Date: 16-Mar-16 4:10:22 PM ******/
    SET ANSI_NULLS ON
    GO
    
    SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER ON
    GO
    
    CREATE TABLE [dbo].[SalesOrderDetail](
    	[SalesOrderID] [int] NOT NULL,
    	[SalesOrderDetailID] [int] IDENTITY(1,1) NOT NULL,
    	[CarrierTrackingNumber] [nvarchar](25) NULL,
    	[OrderQty] [smallint] NOT NULL,
    	[ProductID] [int] NOT NULL,
    	[SpecialOfferID] [int] NOT NULL,
    	[UnitPrice] [money] NOT NULL,
    	[UnitPriceDiscount] [money] NOT NULL,
    	[LineTotal]  AS (isnull(([UnitPrice]*((1.0)-[UnitPriceDiscount]))*[OrderQty],(0.0))),
    	[rowguid] [uniqueidentifier] ROWGUIDCOL  NOT NULL,
    	[ModifiedDate] [datetime] NOT NULL,
     CONSTRAINT [PK_SalesOrderDetail_SalesOrderID_SalesOrderDetailID] PRIMARY KEY CLUSTERED 
    (
    	[SalesOrderID] ASC,
    	[SalesOrderDetailID] ASC
    )WITH (PAD_INDEX = OFF, STATISTICS_NORECOMPUTE = OFF, IGNORE_DUP_KEY = OFF, ALLOW_ROW_LOCKS = ON, ALLOW_PAGE_LOCKS = ON) ON [PRIMARY]
    ) ON [PRIMARY]
    
    GO
    

    Now we will create the table Product.

    USE [TrialsDB]
    GO
    
    /****** Object:  Table [dbo].[Product]    Script Date: 16-Mar-16 4:11:29 PM ******/
    SET ANSI_NULLS ON
    GO
    
    SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER ON
    GO
    
    CREATE TABLE [dbo].[Product](
    	[ProductID] [int] NOT NULL,
    	[Name] [nvarchar](max) NOT NULL,
    	[ProductNumber] [nvarchar](25) NOT NULL,
    	[MakeFlag] [bit] NOT NULL,
    	[FinishedGoodsFlag] [bit] NOT NULL,
    	[Color] [nvarchar](15) NULL,
    	[SafetyStockLevel] [smallint] NOT NULL,
    	[ReorderPoint] [smallint] NOT NULL,
    	[StandardCost] [money] NOT NULL,
    	[ListPrice] [money] NOT NULL,
    	[Size] [nvarchar](5) NULL,
    	[SizeUnitMeasureCode] [nchar](3) NULL,
    	[WeightUnitMeasureCode] [nchar](3) NULL,
    	[Weight] [decimal](8, 2) NULL,
    	[DaysToManufacture] [int] NOT NULL,
    	[ProductLine] [nchar](2) NULL,
    	[Class] [nchar](2) NULL,
    	[Style] [nchar](2) NULL,
    	[ProductSubcategoryID] [int] NULL,
    	[ProductModelID] [int] NULL,
    	[SellStartDate] [datetime] NOT NULL,
    	[SellEndDate] [datetime] NULL,
    	[DiscontinuedDate] [datetime] NULL,
    	[rowguid] [uniqueidentifier] ROWGUIDCOL  NOT NULL,
    	[ModifiedDate] [datetime] NOT NULL
    ) ON [PRIMARY] TEXTIMAGE_ON [PRIMARY]
    
    GO
    

    Can we insert some data to the tables now?

    Insert data to table

    You can use the below query to insert the data to SalesOrderDetail.

    USE [TrialsDB]
    GO
    
    INSERT INTO [dbo].[SalesOrderDetail]
               ([SalesOrderID]
               ,[CarrierTrackingNumber]
               ,[OrderQty]
               ,[ProductID]
               ,[SpecialOfferID]
               ,[UnitPrice]
               ,[UnitPriceDiscount]
               ,[rowguid]
               ,[ModifiedDate])
         VALUES
               (<SalesOrderID, int,>
               ,<CarrierTrackingNumber, nvarchar(25),>
               ,<OrderQty, smallint,>
               ,<ProductID, int,>
               ,<SpecialOfferID, int,>
               ,<UnitPrice, money,>
               ,<UnitPriceDiscount, money,>
               ,<rowguid, uniqueidentifier,>
               ,<ModifiedDate, datetime,>)
    GO
    

    and the following query can be used for the table Product

    USE [TrialsDB]
    GO
    
    INSERT INTO [dbo].[Product]
               ([ProductID]
               ,[Name]
               ,[ProductNumber]
               ,[MakeFlag]
               ,[FinishedGoodsFlag]
               ,[Color]
               ,[SafetyStockLevel]
               ,[ReorderPoint]
               ,[StandardCost]
               ,[ListPrice]
               ,[Size]
               ,[SizeUnitMeasureCode]
               ,[WeightUnitMeasureCode]
               ,[Weight]
               ,[DaysToManufacture]
               ,[ProductLine]
               ,[Class]
               ,[Style]
               ,[ProductSubcategoryID]
               ,[ProductModelID]
               ,[SellStartDate]
               ,[SellEndDate]
               ,[DiscontinuedDate]
               ,[rowguid]
               ,[ModifiedDate])
         VALUES
               (<ProductID, int,>
               ,<Name, nvarchar(max),>
               ,<ProductNumber, nvarchar(25),>
               ,<MakeFlag, bit,>
               ,<FinishedGoodsFlag, bit,>
               ,<Color, nvarchar(15),>
               ,<SafetyStockLevel, smallint,>
               ,<ReorderPoint, smallint,>
               ,<StandardCost, money,>
               ,<ListPrice, money,>
               ,<Size, nvarchar(5),>
               ,<SizeUnitMeasureCode, nchar(3),>
               ,<WeightUnitMeasureCode, nchar(3),>
               ,<Weight, decimal(8,2),>
               ,<DaysToManufacture, int,>
               ,<ProductLine, nchar(2),>
               ,<Class, nchar(2),>
               ,<Style, nchar(2),>
               ,<ProductSubcategoryID, int,>
               ,<ProductModelID, int,>
               ,<SellStartDate, datetime,>
               ,<SellEndDate, datetime,>
               ,<DiscontinuedDate, datetime,>
               ,<rowguid, uniqueidentifier,>
               ,<ModifiedDate, datetime,>)
    GO
    

    So let us say, we have inserted the data as follows. If you feel bored of inserting data manually, you can always tun the SQL script file attached which has the insertion queries. Just run that, you will be all OK. If you don’t know how to generate SQL scripts with data, I strongly recommend you to have a read here

    Next thing we are going to do is creating a ADO.NET Entity Data Model.

    Create Entity Data Model

    Right click on your model folder and click new, select ADO.NET Entity Data Model. Follow the steps given. Once you have done the processes, you can see the edmx file and other files in your model folder. Here I gave Dashboard for our Entity data model name. Now you can see a file with edmx extension have been created. If you open that file, you can see as below.

    Entity Data Model

    Entity Data Model

    Now go back our Web API controller. Please change the code as below.

    using System;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.Linq;
    using System.Net;
    using System.Net.Http;
    using System.Web.Http;
    using MyDashboard.Models;
    using Newtonsoft.Json;
    namespace MyDashboard.Controllers
    {
        public class WidgetController : ApiController
        {
            public DashboardEntities de = new DashboardEntities();
            Retriever ret = new Retriever();
            public string getWidgetData()
            {
                var dataList = ret.GetWidgetData(de);
                return dataList;
            }
        }
    }
    

    Here we have created a new model class Retriever and we have added a method GetWidgetData in that class. Now let us see what I have coded in that.

    using Newtonsoft.Json;
    using System;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.Linq;
    using System.Web;
    
    namespace MyDashboard.Models
    {
        public class Retriever
        {
            public string GetWidgetData(DashboardEntities de)
            {
                try
                {
                    using (de)
                    {
                        var resList = (from sales in de.SalesOrderDetails
                                      join prod in de.Products
                                      on sales.ProductID equals prod.ProductID
                                      select new
                                      {
                                          ProductName = prod.Name,
                                          QuantityOrdered = sales.OrderQty
                                      });
                        var res = resList.GroupBy(d => d.ProductName).Select(g => new
                        {
                            name = g.FirstOrDefault().ProductName,
                            y = g.Sum(s => s.QuantityOrdered)
                        });
                        return JsonConvert.SerializeObject(res, Formatting.None, new JsonSerializerSettings()
                        {
                            ReferenceLoopHandling = ReferenceLoopHandling.Ignore
                        });
                    }
                }
                catch (Exception)
                {
                    throw new NotImplementedException();
                }
    
            }
        }
    }
    

    Here we are using LINQ to fetch the data, We uses JOIN in the query to find the Name from the table Products. Once the data is ready, we are just do group by the column ProductName and sum of QuantityOrdered.

    var res = resList.GroupBy(d => d.ProductName).Select(g => new
                        {
                            name = g.FirstOrDefault().ProductName,
                            y = g.Sum(s => s.QuantityOrdered)
                        });
    

    So the coding part to fetch the data from database is read, now we need to check whether our Web API is ready for action!. To check that, you just need to run the URL http://localhost:1646/Api/Widget. Here Widget is our Web API controller name. I hope you get the data as a result. If you are getting the error Server Error in ‘/’ Application The resource cannot be found, you need to configure your Web API in Global.asax.cs. You got this error just because you created an Empty project with only needed references. So here we need to do his step by our own. No worries, we will do it now. Just change the Global.asax.cs as follows.

    using System;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.Linq;
    using System.Web;
    using System.Web.Http;
    using System.Web.Mvc;
    using System.Web.Routing;
    
    namespace MyDashboard
    {
        public class MvcApplication : System.Web.HttpApplication
        {
            protected void Application_Start()
            {
                AreaRegistration.RegisterAllAreas();
                GlobalConfiguration.Configure(WebApiConfig.Register);//This is for setting the configuration
                RouteConfig.RegisterRoutes(RouteTable.Routes);
            }
        }
    }
    

    Now build your application and run the same URL again, you will get the output as follows.

    Web API Output

    Web API Output

    Now we will go back to our angular JS files and consume this Web API. You need to change the scripts in the app.js, controller.js, factory.js as follows.

    app.js

    (function () {
        'use strict';
        angular.module('WidgetsApp', []);
    })();
    

    controller.js

    (function () {
        'use strict';
        angular
            .module('WidgetsApp')
            .controller('WidgetsController', function ($scope, factory) {
                var res = factory.getData();
                var options;
                if (res != undefined) {
                    res.then(function (d) {
                        var data = JSON.parse(d.data);
                        
                    }, function (error) {
                        console.log('Oops! Something went wrong while fetching the data.');
                    });
                }
            });
    })();
    
    

    Once our service is called, we will get the data in return. We will parse the same and store it in a variable for future use.

    var data = JSON.parse(d.data);
    

    factory.js

    (function () {
        'use strict';
        angular
            .module('WidgetsApp')
            .service('factory', function ($http) {
                this.getData = function () {
                    var url = 'Api/Widget';
                    return $http({
                        type: 'get',
                        url: url
                    });
                }
            });
    })();
    

    AS you can see we are just calling our Web API Api/Widget with the help of Angular $http.

    Now we a view to show our data right? Yes, we need a controller too!.

    Create a MVC controller

    To create a controller, we need to right click on the controller folder, Add – Controller. I hope you will be given a controller as follows.

    using System;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.Linq;
    using System.Web;
    using System.Web.Mvc;
    
    namespace MyDashboard.Controllers
    {
        public class HomeController : Controller
        {
            // GET: Home
            public ActionResult Index()
            {
                return View();
            }
        }
    }
    

    Here Home is our controller name.

    Now we need a view right?

    Creating a view

    To create a view, just right click on your controller name -> Add View -> Add.

    Creating a view

    Creating a view

    Now in your view add the needed references.

    <script src="~/scripts/jquery-1.10.2.min.js"></script>
    <script src="~/scripts/jquery-ui-1.11.4.min.js"></script>
    <script src="~/scripts/angular.min.js"></script>
    <script src="~/scripts/angular-aria.js"></script>
    <script src="~/scripts/angular-route.js"></script>
    <script src="~/scripts/Widgets/app.js"></script>
    <script src="~/scripts/Widgets/controller.js"></script>
    <script src="~/scripts/Widgets/factory.js"></script>
    

    Once we add the references, we can call our Angular JS controller as follows.

    <div ng-app="WidgetsApp">
        <div ng-controller="WidgetsController">
        </div>   
    </div>
    

    Now if you run your application, you can see our Web API call works fine and successfully get the data. Next thing we need to do is creating charts with the data we get.

    Create chart widgets with the data

    As I said, we are going to to create HighChart chart widgets, we need to add a reference to use that plug in.

    <script src="https://code.highcharts.com/highcharts.js"></script>
    

    Now create elements where we can load our chart.

    <div ng-app="WidgetsApp">
        <div ng-controller="WidgetsController">
            <div id="widgetPie" class="widget">Placeholder for chart</div>
            <div id="widgetspline" class="widget">Placeholder for chart</div>
            <div id="widgetBar" class="widget">Placeholder for chart</div>
            <div id="widgetLine" class="widget">Placeholder for chart</div>         
            <div id="widgetScatter" class="widget">Placeholder for chart</div> 
            <div id="widgetColumn" class="widget">Placeholder for chart</div>   
        </div>   
    </div>
    

    You can style your elements as follows if you want, but this is optional.

    <style>
        .widget {
            width: 30%;
            border: 1px solid #ccc;
            padding: 10px;
            margin: 5px;
            border-radius: 3px;
            transition: none;
            -webkit-transition: none;
            -moz-transition: none;
            -o-transition: none;
            cursor: move;
            display: inline-block;
            float:left;
        }   
    </style>
    

    Go back to our Angular JS controller and add the below codes right after we get the data from server.

    Pie Chart

    var data = JSON.parse(d.data);
                        var categories = [];
                        for (var i = 0; i < data.length; i++) {
                            categories.push(data[i].name)
                        }
                        options = new Highcharts.chart('widgetPie', {
                            credits: {
                                enabled: false
                            },
                            chart: {
                                type: 'pie',
                                renderTo: ''
                            },
                            title: {
                                text: 'Product VS Quantity - Pie Chart'
                            },
                            plotOptions: {
                                pie: {
                                    allowPointSelect: true,
                                    cursor: 'pointer',
                                    dataLabels: {
                                        enabled: false,
                                        format: '<b>{point.name}</b>: {point.y:,.0f}'
                                    }
                                }
                            },
                            series: [{
                                name:'Quantity',
                                data: data
                            }]
                        });
    

    Now run your application, you can see a pie chart with the data given.
