How to fix problems with asp.net mvc 3 charts and razor pages

The Problem: You attempt to use the super-cool new charting features in asp.net mvc 3, and all you get is compilation errors

The Cause: You are using the old school System.Web.UI.DataVisualization.Charting.Chart namespace

The Solution: Delete

using System.Web.UI.DataVisualization.Charting.Chart

and instead insert

using System.Web.Helpers;

If you are using the chart code in an actual razor page (and not in the controller), just insert

@using RazorHelpers.Helpers

into the top of the page
