Depth Axis

3D charting extends the axis model with an additional depth (Z) axis. The Z-axis allows data to be plotted along the depth of the chart. It automatically scales in Numeric or Categorical scale mode, allowing the creation of XYZ scatters and XZ-plane categorical plots.

Special Radar and Polar axes

The special Radar and Polar axes are exposed for Radar and Polar charting types, providing advanced settings for complex requirements related to these charting types.

Numeric Scale

The following subtypes are available:
  • Number scale - allows you to display any data in numeric format (profit, sales, percentages etc.).
  • Angular scale - allows you to display angular data in degrees and grads (used in polar charts).
  • DateTime scale - general date time scale suitable for the display of date time data.
  • ValueTimeline scale - advanced date time scale most commonly used in financial charts.
  • RangeTimeline scale - advanced date time scale most commonly used in financial and project management charts.

Categorical Scale

The following features are available for categorical scales:
  • Single row and grouped categorical labels.
  • Controllable grid style.

Advanced positioning options

Customer Quotes:

QUOTE It may be of interest to you know that I selected Nevron charting component mostly based the examples demonstrating programmability, events, etc. We really didn't have the possibility to review in depth several graphing components (there are a lot of them) and all of them show pretty pictures, but from picture demos only you cannot tell about functionality and programmability inside the component engine.

Since Nevron examples demonstrated clicking, events, etc. I got the feeling that it offers a lot of freedom to the developer and you wouldn't be stuck with it at some later point in your development.
