The C1Chart control got several new enhancements in the 2012 v3 release. One of the new features introduced is automatic series generation. Two new properties on the ChartData object now enable the number of data series to be automatically generated based upon the model. This is a useful feature for developers using MVVM as now the number of series can be completely generated in the View Model.
Yesterday we released Studio Enterprise 2012 v3, and among its biggest new features are the Windows 8 controls: Studio for WinRT XAML! Based off our popular Silverlight controls, these familiar XAML controls enable you to build better Windows Store apps with very unique functionality. Create advanced and engaging dashboards with our charts and gauges; display documents and reports with our unique PDF viewer; collect date and time information with our essential DateTime editors, and much more.
The ComponentOne XAML product family is proud to welcome their newest member, Studio for WinRT XAML. Designed to enhance the rich user experience of Windows 8, Studio for WinRT XAML gives you powerful and unique controls for building better Windows Store apps. The studio was available as CTP since mid-August, and it will be officially released as part of the 2012 v3 release of Studio Enterprise (in about three weeks from today). Today we are releasing the Beta update which introduces several new controls and enhancements. We are also introducing activation and licensing (pre-sale) so you can get up and running with your apps today without delay.

This blog post is for WinRT XAML development on Windows 8. One of the key features of Windows 8 is its various orientation states for Windows Store apps. Basically, there are four states:
ComponentOne Gauges offer an interesting way to visualize your data. The C1Gauge libraries for Silverlight, WPF, Windows Phone and WinRT are all identical so I will refer to them as a whole as Gauges for XAML. While the gauges do not have built-in animation features, they do support standard XAML animation techniques. This blog post describes a common scenario and shows how you can apply an animation to the gauge pointer upon value change.
For the past several months we’ve been busy talking about Windows 8 and testing our controls in Visual Studio 2012 and .NET 4.5. Without Visual Studio and without Microsoft there is no ComponentOne, so it’s as important to us as it is to our customers, to have a product that supports the new while still supporting the old. XAML lives on as you can continue your WPF, Silverlight and Windows Phone development with VS2012. Windows 8 also introduces a new breed of XAML, known as WinRT, for C# and VB developers to write Modern-UI apps for the Windows Store.
With the new C1Chart for WinRT XAML you can enhance the end-user experience by allowing users to zoom (scale) and scroll (translate) the chart along its axes using gestures. You can customize the actions by specifying which manipulation modes should be used in conjunction with which gestures.
