Some of key advantages of the SharpShooter Charts™ include:

1. True WYSIWYG designer

Any chart element can be customized visually with a mouse; chart customization doesn’t require knowledge of object model or use of WIZARD. The designer is available both at design and run time.

2. Advanced data binding model that provides a unique set of capabilities for constructing charts without the need to code
SharpShooter Charts™ supports any .NET data sources including ADO.NET, IList and IListSource objects. It is possible to use multiple data sources in a single chart. A developer can use hierarchic data sources: every element of the upper level can be represented as a separate series built by the nested elements. Bound and unbound charts are also supported.

3. Unique object architecture
Unique object architecture of the product provides an ability to combine objects arbitrarily; this allows the creation of chart configurations that are difficult or impossible to build using other approaches. Each element receives a set of events from mouse, so any interactive behavior can be realized. Open architecture allows building non-standard charts with unique elements and series.
