  • Smart Labels

    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.

    See the WinForms ChartView Smart Labels Documentation

    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.
