Default Standard .NET Charting Tools

Are there any standard .NET charting tools which are part of the base classes ? I have deployed my site on DiscountASP.NET and need to do some simple graphs but I can't use anything that needs to be installed on the server ...

No. Remember, .NET controls don't need to be installed on the server- you can copy the DLL and supporting files into your site and they will run just fine.

Thanks Hal, I didn't know that.
Can I do any simple graphs with the base classes, or do I need to buy one of the mutiplicity of tools I see advertised in banner ads ?

There are no simple graphing things in .NET- Basically reports come from Crystal Reports..

I bought the infragistics suite- though you can buy the chart alone. ANd depending on what chart you need you can probably find a less expensive tool than the Infragistics solution.

I should say I have found (not an opinion of Wiley or Wrox) too many bugs in the Infragistics controls and I don't think they are responsive enough in fixing them.

P.S. - Can someone move this to a more appropriate forum, I don't have rights in this forum to move threads.

Thanks again Hal. If anyone can recommend a good graphing component that's not expensive, I'd like to hear about it !
I only need to do simple line graphs from SQL queries.

Thanks Stu, they do look useful, although the coding required could be a little hairy !
Am still on the look out for a higher level tool ...

ComponentOne offers a charting control for .NET:

http://www.componentone.com/products...&&ProductID=21

You can get it free with the (free) .NET VB resource kit:

(Is this the right forum for this? ;) )

Thanks Jeff, and oops, you're right - I didn't mean to abuse the forum with non-Wrox issues ! Sorry all and thanks for the help.
