Hi I'm using a simple chart with the chartingToolkit in System.Window.Control.DataVisualization.Charting in WPF & I want to export the chart to a PDF format. Do you have any sample to do it.

I'm just needing a sample that create a chart with this assembly and with an option I can to export this simple chart to pdf. I created a chart of this way in the XAML:
 





 
In this moment is not a problem to fill a data... I'm just need the methods that I can export this little image.

Observe that in the XAML at the end of the post there is not the fill of the data.

The easiest is just to use wpf printing (for example see http://www.switchonthecode.com/tutorials/printing-in-wpf[^]), then all you have to do is install something like cutepdf and let the user pring to a pdf file (http://cutepdf.com/[^]).

check out my article: Export WPF page to PDF file[^]
 
You can just add the simple chart ad control on a fixedpage, in a fixeddocument and export it into XPS and convert to PDF... no additional printers needed. Can completely be done in code, with one click !

Probably you need to use iTextSharp[^] free software.
 
Please, see these:
WPF and iTextSharp[^] - similar question on social.msdn site.
Creating-PDF-documents-with-iTextSharp[^] - excellent article on CP site.
