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 ?

Hal Levy March 10th, 2004 11:20 AM

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.

You can download these and view their source and create your own.

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:


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.
