Hi

I have a requirement to produce some simple graphs and charts in a desktop VB.net 2008 application. Is there anything built into VB? How would you approach this

The client does not want to drop into or hook up to Excel as most of the users will not have Office installed

Currently I am using .net 2.0 framework

I have uploaded an image of the some of the examples that the client would like to see. As you can see they have used Excel

Thank you in advance
Barry

Have I missed something here? Is VBA actually embedded (embeddable?!) in Vb.net?

I thought the question was specifically no VBA / Excel? I am also eager for a response to this one.

Hi

Thank you for your responses. If excel is embedded in VB then that could be a winner. Would need to find out.

The MS Chart control is for Net 3.5, do you know if there is a Net 2.0 version?

Any other suggestions?

Been on the chart controls download page. Would you know if this is compatible with VB 2010 Express?

Hi

Does anyone know of any third party controls that don't cost the earth?
