You can still download and license the last version of ActiveX Edition from the C1ControlPanel application.

64-Bit Platform Support

Create a better C++ application experience. The 64-bit platform supports more memory allocation to process larger data sets into charts and grids more efficiently.

All ActiveX Edition 8.0 controls can be used in VB6 and Visual VC++ applications, and we provide migration utilities for updating older versions to 8.0.

Subtotaling, advanced data validation, input masks, and column locking are also all supported. 64-bit version included.

Create sophisticated 2D and 3D charts and graphs with fast, real-time tracking and flexible data binding, and serve your charts as JPEG or PNG images. Get all the robust, time-saving, easy-to-use features you expect, such as data binding to any data source, often without writing a line of code. Distribute your charts royalty-free. 64-bit version included.
