What’s new in version Q3 2006
Document – View – Controller Architecture
The chart is now a fully Document – View – Controller architecture driven component, allowing you to selectively store / load chart document state, replace the current chart document visualized by the chart control or display a single chart document in a number of chart controls.
Support for Multithreading
The chart document has two functions called Lock and Unlock that allow you to lock the document from painting while feeding data. This is very useful when you want to feed data to the chart coming from a thread in a thread safe manner.
New Charting Types
Stacked Floating Bar You can stack Bar series over Float Bar series to construct Stacked Floating Bar charts. XY and XYZ scatters are also supported. This charting type is available both in 2D and 3D.
New 2D Rendering Device
The chart has a new 2D rendering device with improved speed and 2D image quality performance. You should see increased quality in text visualization and stroke rendering with applied shadow effect. Special care has been taken to properly render antialiased texts when ClearType rendering is enabled on the system. XML formatted text rendering with bullets is also significantly improved.
Background decorators are a special type of panel allowing you to embed background style rendering on a per panel basis. This allows the creation of very attractive presentation quality charts.
