How to add interactions to annotations in a .NET chart

In this blog, we’ll walk you through how to let the end-users annotate and perform different operations on the annotations. We know annotations are helpful in communicating information, but identifying relevant data points for annotation might not be obvious. If overused, annotations can distract user's attention from the data, so it's important to have the right balance.

Understanding Point and Figure Charts

Point and Figure is an age-old charting technique that was very popular before the invention of computers because of its objectivity and how simple it is to plot. With growing technology, other charting methods were made easier, and this classic paper-pencil method took a back seat. However, timeless charting has recently gained importance again, creating a renewed and growing interest for Point and Figure charts. With the 2017 v3 releases of ComponentOne Studio Enterprise and Wijmo, our FinancialChart control now lets you take advantage of timeless charting with Point and Figure charts.

When to Use StepCharts to Visualize Data

Line and area charts are simple yet powerful ways to represent trends in data, but they’re not the best fit for data that changes at irregular intervals with constant data segments between those changes. This is where Step charts — a chart type in which data points connect in a step-like progression — come into play. With the addition of three new chart types in ComponentOne’s 2017 v3 release of FlexChart, you can now better visualize this kind of data with FlexChart.

A Look at .NET Core 2.0 and .NET 2.0 Standard

How to Use Funnel Charts to Summarize Data in Apps

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.
