Panning a Windows Phone Chart

One of the biggest pain points of the toolkit chart for Silverlight/WPF is that you can’t [easily] add scrolling functionality. This is one of the main benefits of using C1Chart for all your XAML charting needs. The full-blown WPF and Silverlight versions of C1Chart have support for adding scrollbars to axes fairly easily. On the Windows Phone we don’t want scrollbars, but we still want scrolling functionality, which in this case should be referred to as translating or panning. A common charting scenario is when you have too many data points to visualize all at once. The most natural solution is to show only a portion of the data (maybe half) and allow the user to pan left and right to see the rest. Luckily, this functionality is possible with C1Chart for Windows Phone.

The Ultimate UI Tools for MVC

Displaying Image Column in Bound TrueDbgrid

ComponentOne True DBGrid for WinForms is a set of robust, easy-to-use .NET grid controls that allows you to create complex bound and unbound grid applications quickly. When C1TrueDbGrid is bound to a data source which has an image column, neither the image column is shown in the grid nor does it get displayed in the grid designer. This creates a problem for the users who want to show the image column of the DataSource. This blog will help you in creating a bound C1TrueDbgrid displaying Images.
