OverviewFlashChart is a long-awaited component for data visualization. It generates various kinds of charts in Macromedia Flashformat. FlashChart is a must have component for everyone who need to display data as charts.
Judge for yourself: Macromedia Flash is a very wide-spread format - overwhelming majority of Internet users has browsers, supporting this format.
Besides of it, Flash movies, unlike common images, are much more attractive. In particular, charts in Macromedia Flash format are animated; several types of animation are available.
In addition, files ofthis format are rather compact. FlashChart has a lot of appearance settings. You can adjust almost every element of resulting chart.
But it is not all: the cherry on top is that settings could be saved into the separate file, edited, and loaded back. It allows you to prepare so-called style schemesor skins.
We ship about 30 ready-to-use style schemes. FlashChart is developed for using in the. NET Framework environment. However, since Microsoft took care of compatibility of the NET and COM technologies you can add the might of the FlashChart not only into the pure.
NET application, but into the common projects as ActiveX component too (. NET Framework must be installed though). Furthermore, we took care of convenience in usage and prepared detailed documentation in MSDN style, which is building in the MSDN and integrating with Visual Studio.
NET (thus such a great feature as dynamic help is available). FeaturesFive chart types as column, row, line, area and pie. All charts of these types (except of pie charts) can be accumulated and normalized.
FlashChart can be used either in. NET projects or in projects based on ActiveX technology. Macromedia Flash is a cross-platform format and great number of computers does support it.
Charts, created by FlashChart are very attractive. It is not static image: several types of animation is supported. Generated charts has sufficiently small size.
The chart appearance can be easily modified. All the chart settings can be saved to file (called style scheme) and restored from it later. 30 ready style schemes are shipped with the FlashChart.
