Microsoft Chart is an ASP.NET server-side chart control offered for free by Microsoft. The control has no animation, is not JavaScript-based, and is rendered by the web server as a static built-on-the fly temporary image. It offers a large number of chart types, including 3D charts. Original chart controls have been bought from Dundas in 2007, and have been maintained for a while at Microsoft by Alex Gorev.

Microsoft ASP.NET Chart is a FREE control included in the .NET Framework, for the Windows platform. There is nothing to download or to acquire separately. If you have a computer running Windows, the operating system already contains this control, that you can reference and use in ASP.NET MVC or Web Forms applications.

How to Use

Featured Version: 4.7.3062.0

To use the web control, reference the System.Web.DataVisualization .NET assembly, and drop a Chart control from the Toolbox in an ASPX page, from Visual Studio.

Our templates provide the full ASPX page that you may use directly in your projects and adapt for your own needs. One known limitation is you may need to save and reference the eventual remote image files in your local web server.
