View Full Version : New Charting Control from Microsoft

Dec 16, 2008, 1:34 PM
Since ExtJS hasn't implemented a Chart Control yet (suppose to for 3.0) and since Coolite can take advantage of the .NET framework, I felt that everyone would like to know that Microsoft is working on a pretty impressive charting control that you can start playing with now.

Here is a link to Scott Guthrie's Blog about the new control. Note, it appears that the 3.5 framework is required for this control.

How about add some supports for this control in Coolite object?

e.g. the AjaxEvent and AjaxMethods for bounding the data to it.

Yep, I'm on it. I've already been running some tests and we will be providing enhanced support. I don't have a firm time-frame, but it is a high priority.

There will be some basic flash based charting in an upcoming (v1.0?) release. We've also been playing with the MS ASP.NET Charting controls in our MVC sample, see http://mvc.ext.net/

Enhanced support for the MS ASP.NET Charting controls is coming during the v0.9 release cycle.
