To integrate a D3.js chart into a C# application, you can follow these steps:

  1. Include the necessary D3.js library in your project. You can either download the library from d3js.org or use a package manager like npm or Bower to install it.
  2. Create an HTML file that contains the D3.js code for creating the chart. This HTML file will be embedded in the C# application.
  3. In your C# application, create a WebBrowser control or a WebView if you are developing a WinUI app. This control will be used to display the HTML file containing the D3.js chart.
  4. Load the HTML file into the WebBrowser control or WebView.


Here's an example of how to load and display an HTML file in a WebBrowser control:

using System;
using System.Windows.Forms;

namespace D3ChartIntegration
{
    public partial class MainForm : Form
    {
        public MainForm()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
        }

        private void MainForm_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            // Load the HTML file containing the D3.js code
            webBrowser1.DocumentText = Properties.Resources.d3chart;
        }
    }
}


Make sure to set the Build Action property of your HTML file to Embedded Resource so that it can be accessed through the Properties.Resources object.


That's it! When you run your C# application, the WebBrowser control will display the D3.js chart. You can customize the chart's appearance and behavior by modifying the D3.js code in the HTML file. Note that the WebBrowser control uses the Internet Explorer engine, so some modern D3.js features may not be fully supported.
