Creating High Quality Image in .NET GDI+

P: n/a
Hi All,
I am trying to create some Chart in C#. But When i compare them to
proffesional charting tools the look and feel is just not up to the
mark. Can you please guide what i might be doing wrong?? Is it at all
possible to create real high quality images in C#. Should i start using
C++ and windows API's to create images??

Please Advice.

Thanks

Are you familiar with concepts such as anti-aliasing? All the big guys all
offer that as an option, that's the first thing that comes to mind in terms
of "beauty" of graphs. On another note, unless money is a problem, I'd
recommend just using Dundas any day of the week - it would take you years to
replicate their functionality and I LOVE their control.

Hi Craig,
Thanks for you reply. I have tried it all.... SmoothingMode,
PixelOffsetMode, Resolutions. But still i cannot get the desired
effect.
I have tried Dundas and ChartFX. I love both of them and really there
is no way i am going to be getting anywhere close to their
functionality side. But i am buiding this for a Product and my managers
want everything to be either opensource or developed by us.

So in this case i am just trying to imitate the looks of dundas/ChartFX
@ this point. Anyhelp will be really appreciated. Also if you think i
should read some book which explained Advanced techniques on GDI+ layer
that will be great as well.
Thanks Again,
Rahul

Have you tried ZedGraph

http://zedgraph.sourceforge.net/

I don't know if it is as good as other comercial charting libraries, but
it's open source

You can try Nevron Chart for .NET. The component delivers rich charting

Now you can download the new Beta version of Nevron Chart for .NET v4.0
