How to export multiple gauges in single image file in ASP.NET Web Forms Linear Gauge ?

4 mins read


The requirement here is to export multiple gauges into a single page in ASP.NET Web Forms Digital Gauge.


Usually, when multiple gauges are rendered together in a single page, you can not directly export all the gauges altogether as a single image file. It can be performed by exporting each gauge as a separate image file by using export action. To export multiple gauges together into a single image file, retrieve all the gauge elements and add those elements into a new canvas element and then export that canvas element by using the following method.


function buttonclickevent() {
    //To get all the canvas elements
    var canvas1 = $('canvas');
    var b_canvas = new Array();
    for (var l = 0; canvas1[l] != null; l++) {
        b_canvas[l] = canvas1[l];
    //To get only selected canvas elements instead of all canvas element.
    //b_canvas[0] = canvas1[0];
    //b_canvas[1] = canvas1[1];
    //create a temporary canvas to store the combined canvas element.
    var buffer = document.createElement("canvas");
    buffer.width = 0;
    buffer.height = 0;
    //set the total  width and height for Resultant canvas
    for (var i = 0; i < b_canvas.length; i++) {
        buffer.width += b_canvas[i].width;
        buffer.height += b_canvas[i].height;
    var yPosition = 0;
    var buffer_context = buffer.getContext("2d");
    //Draw the canvas
    for (var j = 0; j < b_canvas.length; j++) {
        buffer_context.drawImage(b_canvas[j], 0, yPosition, b_canvas[j].width, b_canvas[j].height);
        yPosition += b_canvas[j].height;
    //method to export all gauges in single file
    exportImage(buffer, "myImage", "png");
function exportImage(buffer, fileName, fileType) {
    var lnk = document.createElement('a'), e; = fileName + "." + fileType;
    lnk.href = buffer.toDataURL("image/" + fileType).replace("image/" + fileType, "image/octet-stream");
    if (document.createEvent) {
        e = document.createEvent("MouseEvents");
        e.initMouseEvent("click", true, true, window, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, false, false, false, false, 0, null);
    } else if (lnk.fireEvent) {

Executing the above example, exports the multiple Circular Gauges altogether as a single image file, while clicking on the export gauge button.
