FlexReport already includes many built-in chart options, but with FlexChartField, you'll have even more features and chart types at your fingertips.
It's July, and that means it's time for the second major release of ComponentOne Ultimate. Check out the highlights in the GrapeCity video below.
ComponentOne introduces C1PDFDocumentSource, a PDF Component that can read, print, and export your PDF documents without any third party PDF reader or software. It also acts as a key component to load and view your PDFs in C1FlexViewer — a cross-platform viewer that can load reports and document types. With C1PDFDocumentSource, you can view PDFs at run time, print them on hard paper, or convert them into other formats without having Acrobat Reader on your system.
The 2017 v2 release packs a number of updates for the Xaml platforms (including WPF, UWP, and Xamarin). While our ComponentOne Xamarin Edition controls leave beta (which you can read more about here), both WPF and UWP have a number of substantial new features in this release that will be of interest for most developers. In this article, we'll give a broad overview here of what's coming in Xaml 2017 v2.
For a long time, you have been using ComponentOne reporting and document objects like FlexReport, C1PdfDocumentSource, and C1SSRSDocumentSource. But have you ever wondered how these objects are managed and what the underlying source that handles them in a uniform manner is?
The ComponentOne Studio FlexChart's addition of Funnel chart—an excellent tool for summarizing data—enables your users to quickly visualize stages in a linear process. Most often it's used to show sales processes to pinpoint potential problem areas, but we'll see in this blog that the uses can be extended far beyond sales. Any funnel consists of the higher part called head (or base), and the lower part is referred to as the neck. The values displayed are in progressively decreasing proportion and amount to 100% in total.
ComponentOne Studio's FinancialChart control comes with built-in support for four types of Fibonacci tools that can be applied to a price or an indicator. These tools helps to analyze trends in the price chart and predict the next price. When the price goes up, they act as resistance levels, and vice-versa.
Since WPF's first release, people keep discussing whether its performance is comparable with WinForms, or whether this platform will eventually die. Now we're seeing the same questions about UWP. Let's try to answer with actual data about our FlexGrid performance.
Good news to UWP developers: along with the new Visual Studio 2017, Microsoft has released .NET Native 1.6, which fixes a lot of the performance issues you may have experienced with Visual Studio 2015.
We released our first UWP Beta in 2015. Since then, Microsoft has released several platform updates and we also made a lot of changes on our side to make our controls fast and stable. UWP FlexGrid performance has improved a lot from the first versions. Now I'd like to share the FlexGrid benchmark application that we use internally. It's similar to what we did for WPF but doesn't include any competitors.
As of January's Service Pack, you can take advantage of a new high-performance FlexChartField (Beta) to complete your reports' data visualisation needs. Its powerful and flexible data binding make adding data visualisation capabilities a simpler task in FlexReport. The FlexChartField is supported in FlexReport in all three platforms: WinForms, UWP, WPF.
We're pleased to announce GrapeCity's January service pack, also known as 2016 v3.5! We're kicking off 2017 with a bang: FlexReport is now available in WPF.
Noise removal is a vital aspect of active trading: traders need to avoid interpreting false signals, and have a clear picture of overall trends. In this blog, we'll look at what's considered noise in stock trading, and how ComponentOne Studio's FinancialChart control can help developers eliminate noise in financial applications.
Microsoft’s big theme this year was transformation, and they lived up to it. We’ve seen Xamarin Studio integrated into Visual Studio; Azure’s continued expansion; a new Visual Studio, not to mention a new Visual Studio for Mac. Windows 10 closed out its one-year free adoption offer, and UWP continues to grow its market. We’re saying goodbye to LightSwitch, and hello to PowerApps. They introduced the HoloLens.
One of the powerful ways of drawing your user’s attention to chart data is through annotations. As the name suggests, annotations let you add textual notes, shapes and images to highlight important data points of the plotted data. When we visualize data in charts, it is not just about depicting the data; it's about making it meaningful. Annotation provide additional information that may not be represented by basic X and Y values.
We're pleased to announce GrapeCity's November 2016 v3 release!
In the world of data visualization, standard techniques like Tables, Bars and Pies have always been the conventional choice. However, you may want a more unconventional option so users can visualize large amounts of complex data easily, clearly and efficiently. In this blog, we'll look at how we can turn the Periodic Table into a Sunburst chart, bringing a new paradigm to modern data visualization.
Continuing with our Getting Started with .NET Sunburst Charts... series, let's dig deeper and understand more about the data that you can visualize with Sunburst chart.
