ASP.NET Charting Features
ASP.NET Chart Control
ChartDirector includes chart controls for both ASP.NET Web Forms and ASP.NET MVC, with
plenty of C# charting and VB charting examples.
Mouse and Touch Interactions
ChartDirector's programmable track cursor not only can track the mouse, it can track
finger movements too. Users and use finger tapping to zoom in or out and use finger drag
to move the viewport, just like they can do so with mouse click and drag. You can add
custom mouse or touch event handlers to most of the chart objects.
On the Fly Image, SVG and PDF Generation
You can create charts as raster images (PNG, JPG, BMP), vector graphics in SVG and PDF,
and streamed them directly to the browser for display or as attachments, without having
to save them as files on the server first.
Windows Forms Charting Features
Windows Forms Chart Control
ChartDirector includes chart controls that not only display the charts, but also include
user interaction features such as tooltips, zooming and scrolling controls, and
programmable track cursors. Most chart objects supports full suite of mouse events for
customizing user interactions. Includes plenty of C# charting and VB charting examples.
Large Data Sets and Zooming and Scrolling
Plotting millions of data points are common with ChartDirector. With that much data,
zooming and scrolling features are useful. With ChartDirector, in additional to using
the mouse wheel and click and drag to zoom and scroll, there is a Viewport control that can
display the full data range with a highlighted box showing the visible range in the main
chart. Users can resize the box to zoom in/out and move the box to scroll in both X and Y
Zoomable Realtime Charts with Snapshot
Realtime charts in ChartDirector is not limited to appending new data points. You can
also update existing data points in realtime, like in a spectrum analyzer in which the
spectrum changes in realtime. Realtime charts can be zoomable and scrollable. You can
take snapshots as raster images (PNG, JPG, BMP) or as vector graphics in PDF.
