Easy Way To make graph at runtime

P: 6
Is there an easy way to make a graph of data that is modified at runtime?

For instance, say someone is going to be inputing values for variables, and after running some math functions, we arrive at 10 points.

1,5,2,7,4,5,1,8,2,4

All I need is somewhere on the form for the program to graph those points and place a trendline for analysis...

I'm sure there is probably an ActiveX plugin that does this...unfortunately, the one that I found was written in VB6 and the Build Failed in VB 2005...

Thanks for any suggestions and help on this ahead of time.

Look for this "Dundas Chart for Windows Forms Professional Edition ". This might help you in what you need to be implemented.

What about MS Chart Control? Is this the one that failed in VB2005?

Thanks for the great ideas...

The solution I was trying to install and work with was called ecGraph by Encore solutions...(hope it is ok to name specific commercial products within this forum)


I will look at both the solutions you recommended. Maybe one of them will work.

Thanks...

If anyone else knows of very simple way to make a line chart with a trend line from user inputed values at runtime...I'd be all ears.

Oh..almost forgot...one piece of information that might be helpful. I'm just learning VB 2005 using the Express Edition...trying to determine between learning VB vs. C#.

So the solution needs to be one that VB 2005 Express can run...not sure if I just made the possible solutions null...(if I understand Microsoft correctly, you CAN'T install certain plugins in Express???? Maybe I misunderstood?)

Thanks

I wouldn't be surprised - crippling things like that is usually how they make the "personal" or "express" edition. Let us know how it goes.

As for naming products, I'm no legal expert but as far as I know you can say pretty much what you like in a public forum. Why, someone actually mentioned a Microsoft product here recently!

Seriously, we're all about solutions. If this ecGraph is any good, go ahead and let people know.

What we object to is people who come into the forum to advertise their commercial products.

Oh, one other thing. If you're looking for a simple way to do a line graph... you could always draw it yourself.
