2D Chart Types

  • 2 minutes to read

The ASP.NET Chart Control provides a wide variety of different 2D chart types (also called view types), which give you the ability to display data as any of the basic chart types, or even as a combination of different series views. In addition, if the data provided for a particular chart type is still valid for another chart type, you can change the current series view with a single click or line of code (see How to: Change the View of a Series) - which makes the Chart Control more flexible when representing data.

The topics listed in this section describe the 2D chart types available in the ASP.NET Chart Control, along with short descriptions on how to use them. The following 2D chart types are available:

A - F

L - P
