Microsoft Chart control for .NET Framework about state management and serialization problem, it works OK with one XML file but fails with another XML file

I use Microsoft Chart control for .NET Framework , you can see details at

The Chart1 is load data from a xml and save to ViewStateData, so even if after I click Reload button, the chart1 still display OK!

I'm very strange that the chart1 works well after click Reload button if it's loaded from Chart1.Serializer.Load(HttpContext.Current.Server.MapPath("~/Template/1.xml"));
but chart1 don't display fter click Reload button if it's loaded from Chart1.Serializer.Load(HttpContext.Current.Server.MapPath("~/Template/Default.xml"));

What happened?

You can download the code at to test!

Hi mycwcgr,

I think you should check your xml file from the following aspects:

(1)Check whether the path is right.

(2)Check whether the format is right.

Problems writing to an XML file
I'm brand new to using XML (in fact this is my first project), so bear with me, I may need a little hand-holding. I'm trying to create a page which simply adds data to an existing xml file. Ultimately it will add the data from a form, but to keep things simple, I've been simply using pre-defined values. Originally I was able to get the script to write the xml exactly as I needed, however it would simply overwrite the existing file every time it was accessed. This is unacceptable, as it will be used to add data to one file, sort of like a mini database. So after much pain and gnashi...

Pulling data from one xml file based on values in a second XML file
Alright, I'm programming using vb within, but I'm a little bit of a newbie when it comes to xml. What I'm trying to do is display particular information from an XML file (parts.xml) based on information in another XML file (orders.xml). Ideally, I'd like to display the info using the xml control within and an xsl stylesheet. The setup of the files is that within parts.xml, each part has an id attribute. I'd like to grab the part id from the orders.xml file, and use it to extract only information on specific parts from parts.xml. Is there an easy way to do this? Any help...
