Thanks to its built-in UI virtualization, RadPdfViewer delivers a performant solution in every scenario.

Re-charged ChartView control
Q1 2013 adds a bunch of improvements to the WinForms’ powerful charting solution, complementing the existing set of interactivity and customization features that allow you to build rich dashboards with no effort:
This new feature enables you to properly display lots of data in your chart with data point labels enabled. It helps you deal with data point labels overlapping, nicely arranging the labels and making your data more readable.
This feature comes in handy in scenarios where you need to display a breakdown chart view of a parent data point value based on end-users’ selection. The Drill-down support includes built-in navigation added as a user-friendly bread crumb and home/back buttons.
RadChartView Q1’13 lets you effortlessly display multiple series based on data of different scale utilizing the newly added multiple axes. We hope you’ll find this capability extremely useful in scenarios that need to provide comparison of values describing different object characteristics versus a single base characteristic.
