The ASP.NET Chart control provided by Microsoft may not suit the requirements of all developers, as many prefer to implement advanced out-of-box functionalities for their projects.
I recently happened to test-drive TeeChart, www.steema.com/products/teechart/net, and was surprised to see that this chart control contained many charting features. Developed by Spain-based Steema Software, www.steema.com, the product is available in Lite and Professional editions. The Lite version has fewer features than the Professional edition but is suitable for small projects. The product enables a developer to build applications for ASP.NET but Windows Forms and projects that target .NET Compact Framework.
The vendor provides a fully functional limited trial license that you can use to explore Teechart’s features. The Lite edition ships with only the standard chart types, including Line, Bar, Area, Pie, FastLine, Horiz.Area, Horiz.Bar, and Horiz.Line charts. The following screenshot shows the standard chart styles.
