I am happy to announce that we just released new version of DotNetBar for WinForms 9.1 with all new Micro-Chart components. Micro-Charts are designed as a super fast charts able to draw over 2000 new charts per second, that can be added to menus, toolbars, the ribbon or any of our other BaseItem container control.

They are used to provide fast, context based and data rich information in small amount of space but they are not designed to replace standard charts. Here is screen-shot from Micro-Charts sample project included with latest build which shows Micro-Charts on Ribbon:

There are 8 Micro-Chart styles included and you can customize their colors, mark high/low points, start and end points, show average lines, etc. Here is image which shows all chart types:

By default data point hot-tracking is enabled so when you move the mouse over the chart you can see the value under the mouse:

Image above also shows the high point (green) and low point (red) marked with dots.

I also really like the chart transition animation we included. I think it adds a lot to how visually pleasing the chart transitions are. Here is image that shows chart changing as different chart data is set:

Nice thing is that you don’t have to do anything extra to have this functionality. Its built-in and completely automatic and you can turn it off too 🙂

You can also add Micro-Charts to our amazing AdvTree control like this:
