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
R - S
S - W
Moreover, the ASP.NET Chart Control introduces a special chart type that uses an optimized algorithm for quick series rendering, which allows you to display a very large quantity of points:
Also note that with the ASP.NET Chart Control, it is possible to combine multiple 2D charts in a single composite chart. Refer to the Combining Different Series Views document for more information on composite charts.
