The new release of Nevron Vision for .NET 2016.1 comes with a major upgrade of Nevron Chart for .NET and Nevron Map for .NET, as well as many improvements in Nevron UI for .NET. Adding several new charting types, palette filling for the area, bar, float bar, high low and smooth area series, table scale and many more features and improvements is making it the absolute ultimate choice for creating advanced dashboards for WinForms, WPF, ASP.NET and MVC applications.

Following is a list of the most important updates in Nevron Chart for .NET (for the full list of updates, please refer to the Documentation).

Polar Range Series

The Polar Range series displays ranges in a polar coordinate system. Each range is specified by its begin and end values and its begin and end angle.

Polar Vector Series

The Polar Vector series displays vectors in a polar coordinate system. Each vector is specified by its begin and end values and its begin and end angle.

Quick Point Series

The Quick Point series can display massive amounts of data - it has a reduced features set compared the standard Point Series, however it is much faster in both 2D and 3D.

Palette Filling for Area, Bar, Float Bar, High Low and Smooth Area series

The Area, Bar, Float Bar, High Low and Smooth Area Series now can have their filling specified as a user defined color / value palette. This feature is supported in both 2D and 3D charts.

Table Scale

The Table Scale is a new type of scale that allows the visualization of tables attached to chart axes. This feature is commonly used to annotate the X axis of categorical stacked or cluster charts.

Customer Quotes:

QUOTE We started a search for new components as we switch away from VB/C++ development to .Net, and felt it was time to re-evaluate all controls we commonly use.

I started the evaluation by looking at all charting controls available on Component Source. (The product we currently have used is [by another leading vendor]).

The initial evaluation took the form of creating a simple x-y chart with a x-axis with a lot of times along it, and passing in random y values, and then formatting the chart to look reasonable. This is a good test of ease of use, documentation, examples provided etc. The C# samples provided were excellent!

This amazingly reduced the choice down to just three. The next step was to look at cost. You had a sensible pricing policy, which is where [the other leading vendor] lost out on it's deployment costs. We wanted a Windows Forms solution, but with a possibility of Web Forms too, without having to go through another big investment.

The final points that swung it for us were...
- Great looks.
- A company that makes and concentrates on a few good products, rather than tens of mediocre ones.
- A good website, where you can get the info you want.
