Building from an already impressive feature set, Chart FX will offer unmatched IDE integration and innovative features that will set new standards in charting component technology. http://softwarefx.com/sfxNetProducts/ChartFX/fe atures/default.aspx Chart FX Extensions Pack With the Chart FX Extensions Pack developers are no longer required to spend hours configuring a generic charting component for financial, mapping, OLAP and statistical functionality. Instead, Chart FX Extensions, which are.NET controls, can be added to either Chart FX for.NET or Chart FX 7 to adapt to these data sources enabling organizations to quickly and economically develop solutions that meet unique business needs. http://www.softwarefx.com/extensions/ Chart FX for.NET 6.2Chart FX for.NET 6.2 was completely written in Microsoft Visual C#.NET to ensure that Chart FX exists within the Microsoft.NET Framework as fully managed code. Chart FX for.NET 6.2 features Windows Forms and Web Forms functionality, increased security, easier integration with XML Web services, enhanced XML support, new and improved API, a server component to generate JPEG, PNG, ActiveX or SVG and code generation through the improved designer. http://www.softwarefx.com/SFXNetProducts/Char tFX/features/62features/features_easyToCode.asp x Grid FXGrid FX introduces new features never before seen in a grid control, or any other Visual Studio control for that matter. Now, instead of working through abstract modal dialogs to edit columns, the developer can just click and drag right onto the design surface. Smart Tags became full blown context sensitive wizards where most of the functionality is readily available in a graphical way rather than a simple list of properties. In addition, developers can click on a cell in the grid and get options specifically for that cell type. Grid FX offers in-place WYSIWYG template editing instead of the hiding the control and entering a “template mode”. We believe these enhancements will be some of the most notable improvements to developers using Grid FX for the first time. http://www.softwarefx.com/sfxNetProducts/GridF X/ Chart FX GaugesChart FX Gauges delivers a set of.NET components that allow developers to quickly and effectively integrate gauges into their client-server and web-based applications. With the addition of Gauges to the Chart FX family of products, developers can easily create digital dashboards with the productivity, consistency and reliability they’ve come to appreciate from other Software FX products. Each individual element that goes into creating a gauge is meticulously crafted by professional graphic artists. These elements combine to create a photorealistic gauge complete with shadows, lighting and glare effects. http://www.softwarefx.com/sfxNetProducts/cfxGa uges/ Chart FX for Reporting Services With over 20 different chart types (including radial, horizontal, vertical, digital meter and LED panel gauges), customizable legends, ready-to-use color palettes, multiple and customizable axes, per-marker attributes, gridlines, background images and border objects, Chart FX for Reporting Services allows you to create visually appealing charts in literally minutes.
