    Using charts in ASP pages


    Hiiii
    In my project i want to use charts in ASP pages. Presently i am using MS
    chart control but the look and feel of it is not so good.
    Is it possible to use excel charts in ASP pages? ( I have used it extensively
    in VB/VC applications.)
    Are any third party tools available for displaying charts on ASp pages.

    Pl note that charts are created dynamically. What i mean is that based on
    certain form inputs data is fetched from DB and then chart is created with
    that data.


    Thanx

    You can create Excel charts (with data retrieved from database) from ASP in
    altogether 3 ways, viz.,

    1. Calling EOM (Excel Object Model) directly
    2. Using OWC (Office Web Components) and
    3. Using a 3rd party tool. The one tool that comes to my mind immediately

    is ExcelWriter from SoftArtisans (www.softartisans.com)

    Programming using EOM (particularly in chart generation) is kinda tough one.
    Regarding programming with OWC, some time back I saw a great article written
    by ASP guru, Scott Mitchel in www.4guysfromrolla.com. But I think the easiest
    way is using the ExcelWriter. When I saw last time, SoftArtisans were offering
    a free version of ExcelWriter.

    I recently developed a free ASP bar chart tool with the following features
    but you do have to loop through your recordset to fill an array with the
    data:

    o Built as a pure ASP class so there are no components to register and code
    is still hidden behind the scenes.
    o If one puts the cursor over a bar, its value is shown as a tooltip.
    o Tooltip and y-axis values can be rounded and formatted to look like $1,234
    instead of 1234.12.
    o The Y-axis min and max can be set or calced from the data and the min can
    even be negative.
    o Chart data area size can be set.
    o Text size and style can be set.
    o The chart can be aligned on the page left, center, or right.
    o If y-axis min and max are calced from data, they are set to round numbers
    such as 950 instead of 947.
    o Title and footers can be shown with multiple lines of text.
    o Bar colors can be set otherwise default colors are used.
    o The Legend can be shown or not shown.
    o X-axis data or series labels can be shown or not (but these can make the
    graph wider).
    o The only required setting is the 2-dimensional data array itself.

    Best regards,
