UI for WinForms
Telerik Windows Forms ChartView control facilitates data visualization, achieving stunning visual effects. This chart component sets no limits on your data visualization needs. It can easily turn into Bar, Pie, Line, Area, Polar, Radar and Scatter with only a few clicks at design time. The input data is contained in a set of series classes. Each series have a collection of data points, that is, a data source which it displays according to the series’ type.
Slick and intuitive, RadChartView supports a great variety of chart types:
Bar, Range, RangeBar or Radar chart to compare several data sets
Pie and Donut chart to visualize a piece of data as part of the whole
Area, Line, FastLine, Spline and Stepline charts to monitor trends
Scatter, ScatterArea, ScatterLine and Bubble chart to visualize the correlation in a set of engineering data
Polar chart to plot engineering data in a polar coordinate system
Funnel chart to display a single series of data in progressively decreasing or increasing proportions
Waterfall chart to show the cumulative effect of positive or negative values on the starting point
Easily create live-data experiences with updates as fast as the eye can see.
Take advantage of the high-low-close (HLC), open-high-low-close chart (OHLC) and CandleStick chart types to visualize data in financial-based applications.
The RadarColumn Series is a two-dimensional chart consisting of three or more quantitative variables represented on axes with the same starting point in the ChartView. Radar Charts, also known as web chart or spider chart are often used to showcase the quality of improvement or status in a few different areas.
Another functionality is the Lasso Selection (zoom to selection), where by selecting a rectangle on the surface of the control the latter will then zoom in automatically based on the selected Cartesian area.
Following RadGridView, RadPivotGrid, RadScheduler and RadPdfViewer, RadChartView is yet another control from Telerik UI for WinForms for printing. Using print setting dialogs, your end users are already familiar with, the printing process will be a breeze.
The control has a built-in ExportToImage function to export the control content to an image.
GridLine, PlotBand and Marked zone annotations are supported out of the box to help with highlighting an area in the chart.
The control offers:
Additionally, RadChartView features different plot modes (on ticks, between ticks), axis alignment and inverse axis.
By default, the control supports selecting single and multiple data points. In addition, using the lasso selection.
Using tooltips, arbitrary information can be shown when the users hovers over a data point. With the track ball functionality, a vertical line is displayed across the chart plot area, and the area is highlighted wherever the line crosses data points. In addition, additional information can be displayed at those intersections.
The ScaleBreaks feature allows you to "break off" large chunks of the axis, so graphs with large amplitude are easier to read.
To better outline the values of your data points, they need labels of their own. However, in the case where there are lots of data points, displaying all the necessary labels to the end-user can be a challenging task. RadChartView solves this problem for you by implementing a smart algorithm that arranges the labels preventing them from overlapping each other while making it clear which label belongs to which data point.
RadChartView supports multiple axes on the same chart and allows plotting data of different metric on the same chart. Such visual presentation allows the end-user to understand the relation between the different types of data involved in the same process.
It is important that you not only provide a beautiful piece of data visualization, but also a map to reading it. With RadChartView you also get a slick looking legend to provide context to your data visualization. The RadChartView legend is easily customizable
so that you can align it against the chart plot and make sure that it matches your general look and feel.
Complexed ChartView scenarios may require a vast number of legend elements that do not always fit in the given legend space. The legends wrapping feature of the Telerik UI for ChartView has got you covered! Once this setting is enabled, the legends will wrap their content when there is not enough space to fit them all.Visit the Telerik RadChartView for WinForms documentation for more information
A feature useful in many business cases, null-value support, enables RadChartView to properly display data with missing records for a given category or date, so your end users don’t confuse the missing records with zero values for those categories/dates.
You can choose from one of the 19 predefined color palettes to get a chart look and feel that matches your application design. And if you require something even more custom, the flexible ChartView API will allow you to create your own palettes.
The smartly designed Telerik Presentation Framework allows for embedding ChartView into any of the other RadControls. This feature comes in very handy when you have to display trends in a GridView.
Many business applications rely on database data, for example MS SQL, Oracle, MySQL, Access ODBC as well as XML data and business objects in multiple-tier scenarios. RadChartView follows the standard Windows Forms data-binding model. It allows you to bind your charts to any custom business object, database or declarative data source.
The control can be set up at design time using its Smart Tag or Properties Window, or specifically designed Property Builder.
