This sample demonstrates how to set chart data from an Xml file. The content of the XML file (ChartData.xml) is:
<ChartData>
  <Item label="A" value="6" />
  <Item label="B" value="4" />
  <Item label="C" value="5" />
  <Item label="D" value="9" />
  <Item label="E" value="10" />
  <Item label="F" value="7" />
</ChartData>
For detailed implementation, please take a look at the HTML code tab.
