Can you recommend a graphing control?

I'm going to be starting a project where the interface will present the user with a number of line graphs drawn in the same grid.  (I'm using the word grid loosely.)  

I need to be able to display the lines in different colors (or styles such as solid, dotted, dashed, etc) with plotted point represented differently for each line - circle, square, triangle, etc.

I probably need tool tips when the mouse is held over a plotted point.

The user will need to be able to drag points to a new position.

The tool needs to have an object model that will allow me to quickly sum the Y values of all points at each X coordinate.

Any recommendations, suggestions for a control that will support this behavior.  Thanks

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

You can try chceking out GNUPlot, which has a VB interface.  It's open source so it's basically free but with some decent support.

Thanks to all for the responses -- it'll take me several days to go through them all, but I will not forget to award the points.
