Feature Highlights

Legend:
  •  Saves you time and money
  •  Helps exceed expectations

    Label Tokens 

    Tokens can be used in labels to represent values and offer a much simpler way to manipulate label text.

  • image description
    Code Expansion 

    Automatic code expansion allows aliasing any property by typing it out in a single name. The chart will detect and expand the properties automatically. This feature can save a large amount of time by eliminating additional keystrokes necessary to achieve the same property settings without code expansion.

    Smart Tooltips 

    The chart detects the type of data being used and automatically creates an useful and informative tooltip.

    Globalization & Formatting  

    Effortless globalization enables quick and easy labeling in any language. A complete format string set is available and supports all numeric and date formats, including custom format strings. Combined, formatting and culture settings will automatically generate labels ensuring correct formats without requiring familiarity with the details of any language.

    Inline Formatting 

    Specific token formatting can be inlined with a label's text.

  • image description
    Smart Category Data Grouping 

    Datasets with partial or missing category data will be evaluated through a specialized algorithm to detect what the intended order of such a series may be. When such data is used with a chart, it will save a great deal of time by interpreting it automatically.

    Arbitrary and Relative Annotation Positioning 

    Annotations can be used as labels or annotations and can be placed anywhere on the chart relative to the chart top left corner, or the chart area's top left corner.

    • Silverlight
  • Palettes - A large selection of predefined palettes
  • Browser Compatibility - Supports virtually all standard and popular browsers.
  • Smart Interpretation of settings - Traditionally users had to specify every individual setting to achieve a particular effect. The chart evaluates settings, and logically concludes what the user is attempting to do. Then applies such settings directly. Example:
    • States Cascading - A point has states: [normal, hover, selected ] When the hover marker size is set, the selected state inherits those settings.
    • Visual Completion - A legend background color is specified. The legend outline updates accordingly.
  • Smart Default Tooltips - Depending on the data and chart type, the tooltip displays relevant and useful calculations automatically.
    • Tooltips utilize axis labels to identify data within tooltips automatically.

Visuals & Aesthetics

  • Bar Shading Effects

    • Aqua Shading Effect Mode - Classic, yet still beautiful aqua bar shading.
    • Rounded Shading Effect Mode - Professional and robust bar shading.
  • Default Shading Effects.
    • The chart does not use solid colors by default, when a color is specified, it still does not render fully solid. not obvious to conscious eye, yet subconsciously pleasing)
  • Color Automation - When a color is specified for an object such as a legend background, in this case it also affects the outline color. This is just one example, however, anytime it is logical to do so, the chart will figure out the best way to use specified settings to deliver unprecedented visual results diminishing the need for professional designers to make chart look great.
