|Chart for .NET Overview|
Nevron Chart for .NET has been designed from the ground up to be extensible, efficient and feature rich. This allows it to wrap a vast amount of features in an intuitive and straightforward programming model. The component can display virtually any 2D or 3D chart including: Bar, Line, Step Line, Area, Pie, Point, Bubble, Stock, Floating Bar, Radar, Polar, High Low, Mesh Surface, Grid Surface, Triangulated Surface, Shape, Smooth Line, Float Bar, Venn and Error with many variations (like Scatter XY and XYZ Line, Stacked Bars etc.).
Other charting features include scrollable axes, integrated legend, chart annotations, watermarks and a very extensible chart layout manager.
The component features full Visual Studio design time support with many advanced features like style editors, allowing you to quickly modify the chart only using its visual interface.

Kagi is a type of financial chart that illustrates the forces of supply and demand on a security. It is focused on price action and disregards the passage of time.
Renko is a type of financial chart that is very effective for traders to identify key support and resistance levels. It filters minor price movements and emphasizes on general trends.
- Point and Figure
Point and Figure is a type of financial chart that is designed to filter non-significant price changes and to focus on the main price trends. Point and Figure charts are usually used for longer term price movements.
- Three Line Break
Three Line Break is a price change financial chart that is similar in concept to Kagi, Renko and Point and Figure.
- Floating Bar
Smooth edge and cut edge bar styles as well as the standard pyramid, cylinder, ellipsoid, cone, inverted pyramid and inverted cone styles.
Contour and filled area styles. Supports markers. A special - elevated center feature.
Contour and filled area styles. Supports markers. Radian and degree label formatting.
- High Low
High low area with built-in appearance logic. Supports markers. XY scatter mode is also supported (date time range chart).
- Mesh Surface
Surface connecting the user specified X, Y, Z data points. The Mesh surface can be filled with an automatic or user defined palette. Smooth palette filling is supported. Several frame styles are supported including: Mesh, Contour, Dots, Mesh - Contour. The frame can be uniformly displayed or synchronized with the used palette. Flat mode is also supported (Mesh Contour chart).
- Grid Surface
Surface connecting the regularly spaced data points (forming a grid). The Grid surface can be filled with an automatic or user defined palette. Smooth palette filling is supported. Several frame styles are supported including: Mesh, Contour, Dots, Mesh - Contour. The frame can be uniformly displayed or synchronized with the used palette. Flat mode is also supported (Grid Contour chart).
- Triangulated Surface
This charting type can display a set of points with X, Y and Z coordinates as a 3D surface. In contrast to the Mesh Surface chart, the Triangulated Surface doesn't require the points to be ordered in a network. The control creates a triangular network automatically.
A versatile rendering series. The ultimate scatter plotter. Can display shapes with the following styles: Smooth edge, cut edge bar, pyramid, cylinder, ellipsoid, cone, inverted pyramid and inverted cone. The user controls the (X, Y, Z) position of the shape as well as its size along the X,Y and Z dimensions. Can also be used for complex composite object rendering.

- Step Line
2D Step Line, 3D Step Line, DateTime Step Line
- Error Bar
Y Error Bar, XY Error Bar, XYZ Error Bar
Funnel charts are often used to represent stages in a sales process and show the amount of potential revenue for each stage. This type of chart can be useful also in identifying potential problem areas in an organization’s sales processes. A funnel chart is similar to a stacked percent bar chart.
- Box and Whiskers
Box and whiskers plots are very helpful in interpreting the distribution of data. Each box and whiskers item represents a set of values and displays statistical information for it like minimum, maximum and median values, upper and lower quartiles, outliers and optionally a mean value.
- Line Studies
Line Studies are lines and various geometric figures that are plotted in price charts or in indicator charts. They are used as analytical instruments helping to define channels, support and resistance levels, trend changes and to forecast price dynamics. Line studies supported by Nevron Chart for .NET - Fibonacci Arcs, Fibonacci Fans, Fibonacci Retracements, Quadrant Lines, Speed Resistance Lines and Trendline.
- Smooth Area Series
Standard Smooth Area, XY Smooth Area and Date-Time Smooth Area.
|Chart Axes Features|
Nevron Chart for .NET provides complete set of axis related features designed to target even the most compelling charting requirements. The axes are also largely automatic allowing you to focus on your project and be able to customize every aspect of the appearance and behavior of the axis if needed. Following is a short list of the axis related features of the component:
- Primary and Secondary X and Y Axes
Supports Primary and Secondary X and Y Axes. You can specify the X and Y axes on which each values data grouping (chart series) is scaled. Advanced settings allow you to make use of axis crossings, docking and percent positioning.
- Depth Axis
In 3D charting, the axis model is extended with an additional depth (Z) axis. The Z axis allows data to be plotted along the depth of the chart. It automatically scales in Numeric or Categorical scale mode, allowing the creation of XYZ scatters and XZ-plane categorical plots.
- Special Radar and Polar axes
The special Radar and Polar axes are exposed for Radar and Polar charting types, providing advanced settings for complex requirements related to these charting types.
- Numeric Scale
The following subtypes are available:
- Number scale - allows you to display any data in numeric format (profit, sales, percentages etc.).
- Angular scale - allows you to display angular data in degrees and grads (used in polar charts).
- DateTime scale - general date time scale suitable for the display of date time data.
- ValueTimeline scale - advanced date time scale most commonly used in financial charts.
- RangeTimeline scale - advanced date time scale most commonly used in financial and project management charts.
- Categorical Scale
The following features are available for categorical scales:
- Single row and grouped categorical labels.
- Controllable grid style.
- Advanced positioning options
The axes of the component can be docked to the chart sides (or polar rim) or crossed at value with some other axis. In addition axes can share parts of the chart plot.
Control over the title text, appearance, position and angle.
Control over the begin / end ruler caps as well as option to highlight scale breaks on the ruler.
Control over the range displayed by the axis. Ability to inflate that range in several modes.
Control over the major and minor gridlines appearance.
Control over the appearance and position of minor and major ticks.
Ability to highlight repeating ranges of data on the chart walls, with controllable show / hide pattern.
Ability to conditionally modify the appearance of axis decorations (tick, gridlines and labels) if they fall in a specified range. This feature allows you to highligh important ranges of data on the axis.
- Const Lines
Ability to show constant (reference) lines at specified value. In 3D mode you can also show planes crossing the plot at the specified value.
- Axis Scale Breaks
Axis Scale Breaks skip a range of values on the axis to increase the readability of the chart. Nevron Chart for Reporting Services provides support for manual and automatic scale breaks with full control over appearance and behavior. X and Y scale breaks can be crossed. Scale breaks are also displayed in 3D Mode.
- Label Layout
Ability to control how the axis must resolve label overlapping and layout options.
- Label Formatting
Ability to control the label formatting on numeric scales - including many advanced options for currency, percentage, scientific and date time label formatting.
