I currently have looking at adding in some charting features to my software. I am currently looking at upgrading my Visual Studios from 2005 to 2015. I could only find 2015 on any Microsoft website.

I am looking for the following information:

Best upgrade package from VS 2005 what direction should I go?
If upgrading what charting feature should I use and anything really cool out there that is powerful.

Thanks in advance

Visual studio will only be found on a Microsoft Website. It doesn't do an upgrade it will be a fresh install as both products can exist in the same machine.

as for charting there is no 'best'.. i.e. which is the best house to buy? Telerik and Infragistics have good charting controls as part of their packages. They are not free though. For free you could explore codeplex and find one that you like.

Thanks for the suggestions I will for sure take a look. I know I used to work with Dundas charts way back in the day and now they are embedded with MS VS 2015. I like them but not too interactive.

Are there any interactive charts out there

Thanks in advance
