Nevron Chart for .NET Q3 2007 introduces:

Improved AJAX Support for Web Forms (VS 2005 Specific)

– Improved browser compatibility.
– Extended client side JavaScript class interfaces.
– The Nevron Instant Callback technology was added as an alternative to the MS AJAX Callback, which greatly improves the performance of the web controls.
– Configurable event queuing at client side makes mixing of mouse move, mouse click events and auto refresh possible and native to the web site visitors.
– Improved behavior of the web controls on communication breakdown; a wait message is displayed and the server is queried periodically for availability; when the connection with the server is reestablished, the web controls continue normal operation.

Improved Web Controls in Postback Mode (VS 2005 Specific)

– HttpHandler image generation was added as an alternative to the traditional temporary image files used by Nevron web components. Now Nevron web components register an *.AXD virtual file in web.config and stream on demand images to the client through it.

New Charting Types

– 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 is a price change financial chart that is similar in concept to Kagi, Renko and Point and Figure.

Ability to Drag Gauge Indicators

– Added is the ability to drag gauge indicators with the mouse as well as to protect gauge indicators from dragging. You can also use the new Value Snapping to snap gauge indicators to certain values when dragging.

Improved Performance

– The chart axis zoning and calculation is optimized. The conversion from logical to scale units and vice versa is optimized.

Improved Value Snapping

– All objects that reference an axis value can now snap in variety of ways including: snap to major ticks, snap to minor ticks, numeric snapping (based on an origin value and step), date time snapping (based on an origin date and date/time step) and ruler min max snapping.

Improved Data Zooming

– You can now set how the axis scrollbar treats the reset button by resetting the axis view range to it’s default state or by reverting the state to the last valid zoom in operation thus enabling you to perform better data drilldown.

Ability to export images in EMF file format

– The component can save images in EMF file format as well as to copy EMF images to the clipboard.
