A library, commandline-tool and designer for creating charts quickly by just providing a datasource and output-parameters.
Charts are built using the System.Windows.Forms.DataVisualization.Chart object, which is distributed separately by Microsoft, but also included in the project.
Built using sample2.xml
You can create an XML yourself with minimal information (see sample1.xml
) and just pass it to the commandline tool: chartbuilder.exe -c Samples\Sample1.xml -o sample1.png
Alternatively you can start up the ChartBuilder-Designer and graphically create the configuration-file (see sample2.xml
). You can also edit hand-built configuration files with the designer to further manually configure the look of the chart.
The designer requires Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects 2.0 Library
and Microsoft OLE DB Service Component 1.0 Type Library
to be installed, to be able to display the connection-string dialog box.
