Improved charting for Visual Studio 2008

This article was originally published in VSJ, which is now part of Developer Fusion.
Newly released Dundas Chart for .NET v.6.1 is designed to work with Visual Studio 2008 and has new features to help users achieve the look they want. Two new Rose Chart types have been added: Stacked, which allows you to display one set of data on top of another, and Radial Gap, which offers the option of providing a hole in the centre of the Rose Chart providing visual difference similar that between a Pie Chart and a Doughnut Chart.

A new attribute for 2D column charts means that labels can now be displayed vertically inside the column and its Data Point Label Offset attribute allows you to define the exact offset of the data point to the label. Its Custom Data Point Palette Property means that custom colours can now be applied for each point individually, giving charts more versatility. A new AJAX feature enables developers to handle chart scroll events on the server side.
