    Would I be correct in thinking these are NOT based on the Dundas IP?  If I’m wrong and they are, do you have plans to add the Gauge control to the toolkit?

  17. David Anson says:

    aviationplanning,

    You’re correct that Silverlight Charting is not based directly on the Dundas implementation. However, we were in *very* close contact with some of the Dundas folks who are now at Microsoft during the initial design phase and had numerous discussions about how they did things and why. At the end of the day, we’re targeting different platforms and those platforms support some very different concepts (ex: Templating) – so there are differences in how we’ve gone about things.

    Hope this helps!

    Is there a way we can use Fusion chart type of animation in it? http://www.fusioncharts.com/aspnet (making the graphs look better, what I like the most if the simplicity it offers for developers)

  20. David Anson says:

    Aji,

    I'm not sure if there were specific aspects of the animation you were interested in, but the Toolkit charts already animate to show changes to the underlying data. I mention some of that above, and you can find lots more in my collection of Charting links: http://cesso.org/r/DVLinks

    Regarding some of the animations they do that are just for show, that's not something we've spent a lot of time on. There is native support for the fade in/fade out animation (which can do more than just fade!), but that's it for "out of the box" behavior. Of course, everything is a Control in the Toolkit charting model, so it's always possible to re-Template and customize the behavior to your liking.

    Hope this helps!
