A built-in WYSIWYG designer provides the ability to customize charts without writing a single line of code. A mouse click on any chart element provides access to all its properties which can be interactively changed. The designer is available both at design time and run time.
In contrast to similar products available on the market, Chart ModelKit features an advanced data binding model that provides a set of unique capabilities for creating charts without the need to code. This library connects to the .NET, ADO.NET, IList, and IListSource data sources. It is possible to use multiple data sources in a single chart. While designing charts, hierarchical data sources can be used: every element of the upper level is represented as a separate series built by nested elements. Chart data can be grouped or sorted by any condition. The built-in expression language allows performing manipulations over values when binding the chart to a data source. Besides that, you can create a set of charts by a flat set of data, using arbitrary grouping condition. It is also possible to build bound and unbound charts.
Due to the unique object architecture the product grants the opportunity to design the great many of chart configurations which are hard or impossible to create using other approaches. Chart ModelKit supports export to SVG, Flash, BMP, JPEG, GIF, PNG and TIFF formats.
The product delivers a wide range of 2D charts which can be used in .Net Windows Forms applications. The library contains a set of standard elements: axes, labels, legends, titles etc and a set of available series types: Pie, Bar, Stacked Bar, Stacked100Bar, Spline, Line, Bubble, Area, Stacked Area, Stacked100Area, Stock, Candle Stick.
In addition, Chart ModelKit supports a number of features inherent to all Perpetuum Software products. The component is written in C#, contains only managed code and supports all .NET data sources. Full source code in C# is available. Chart ModelKit run time is royalty free.
Most developers continue to actively use third-party chart components as a part of their applications, though complexity and different integration mechanisms can challenge product implementation and developer productivity. Chart ModelKit is included into the .NET ModelKit Suite - an integrated developer framework with similar design time and run time customization facilities. This provides easy integration with other Perpetuum Software products – Report Sharp-Shooter, Instrumentation ModelKit and OLAP ModelKit.
