Chart Controls in ASP.Net

I was looking at creating chart controls for implementing in the .Net web applications. I didn’t like to use the 3rd party tools or any freeware tools. Well, while browsing found a cool feature provided by MICROSOFT for the same.
In this article, we will have a look at the CHART CONTROLS in .Net applications.
Ø  Visual Studio 2008 SP1, Link to download
Ø  .NET Framework 3.5 SP1, Link to download
Ø   Microsoft Chart Controls, Link to download
Ø  Visual Studio 2008 Add-on for the Chart Controls, Link to download
Ø  Documentations by Microsoft, Link to download
Ø  Web and Windows Application Samples, Link to download
Types of Charts
Ø  Area Charts
Ø  Bar column Charts
Ø  Circular Charts
Ø  Combination Charts
Ø  Data Distribution Charts
Ø  Error Bar
Ø  Financial Charts
Ø  Line Charts
Ø  Pie Doughnut Charts
Ø  Point Charts
Ø  Price Range Financial Charts
Ø  Pyramid Funnel Charts
Ø  Range Charts
The examples provided by Microsoft are very clear and easy. Hence you can download and try the samples. Also, the control is easy to use, just drag and drop the control and start using it.
The namespace which we use here is System.Web.UI.DataVisualization.Charting.
More about Chart Controls
Ø  This control is not available for Visual Studio 2005.
Ø  It is available as a native component in Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 SP1.  First you have to install the Chart Controls provided by Microsoft and then the add-ons for using the control.
Ø  But in Visual Studio 2010, it is present as inbuilt component. We can just use it!
