ProEssentials is a charting software development tool consisting of five charting components:
| Scientific Graph Object
| 3D Scientific Graph Object
|Polar / Smith Object
|Pie Chart Object
Designed to automate data visualization within custom charting software programs and web sites. ProEssentials seamlessly embeds into your software and web site.
Delivering depth in features via each of the following interfaces:
ProEssentials is accepted as the leading charting
software development tool for engineering, manufacturing, financial, and handling
larger data-sets due to ProEssentials' superior speed, quantity
of features, and attention to rendering and end-user detail.
ProEssentials is compatible with Microsoft Visual Studio.NET 2010, 2008, 2005, 2003, and 2002, Visual Studio 6.0, Visual Basic 6.0 and Delphi/Builder.
This product is a one-time purchase and then delivers the latest ActiveX, .NET (Windows Forms), ASP.NET (Web Forms), DLL, and VCL interfaces, new releases, updates, improvements, and phone/email/online support. So when purchasing Gigasoft ProEssentials, you will get access to all updates and upgrades until we stop supporting changes/improvements (many years). New major versions usually show every 3 years. We still support changes in v6, and provide technical support for any customer, no matter how long they've used ProEssentials.
Client side deployment is Royalty Free. For web development, the ProEssentials product allows for placing ProEssentials’ redistributables on one production server, one test server, and one development server.
Electronic documentation is available on the web at www.gigasoft.com/netchart/controlcomponentslibrary.htm as well as locally on your development system. Chapter 1 is the product overview that will bridge the gap between this content and the actual programming reference. Walk-Throughs included and are easier to study as you can hyper link to related content. There are plenty of examples showing how features are used in conjunction to produce highly interactive and quality data visualization.
Our featured online interactive web demo has been updated and the charts are being built with .NET WebForm and version 6 technology. You'll note gradient bars and drop-shadow effects behind everything, including all text. You can print, maximize, and export images and data right within the browser. Check it out at www.gigasoft.com/netchartsandgraphdemos.aspx. Version 6's Pie Chart control has been improved (again) and now offers three algorithms to prevent text from overlapping. Open-High-Low-Close and Candle-Stick features have also been completely rewritten to produce the highest quality output independent of the quantity of data and size of chart. If you run our v7 demo, look at example 030 (the default example), right click it and customize it by removing data shadows. Then zoom in on about 60 candlesticks. Next size the MDI child downward slowly. You'll see five different drawing algorithms as the chart is reduced in size until a candlestick is represented with a one pixel wide vertical line. It's this attention to detail and other similar logic which proves ProEssentials to be the best image producer in the market.

ProEssentials comes in three strengths, Pro, Standard, and Lite.
The Standard and Lite versions have all the features and interfaces as our Pro version. All versions include WinForm, WebForm, ActiveX, VCL, and DLL interfaces. All versions include 1000 plus properties, methods, and events. The only difference between the Standard and Lite is the quantity of data points and annotations that can be rendered.
The Standard version is limited to 8000 data points and 800 annotations. The Lite version is limited to 1000 data points and 100 annotations. This limit is per instance of a control. You can have multiple controls running and each with the above limitation.
For example, 8000 data points could represent a 3D surface plot with 88 rows by 88 columns producing 7744 polygons. Or, a Scientific Graph can have 4 axes, with one subset per axis, each axis/subset plotting 2000 points for a total of 8000 data points.
(Number of Subsets) times (Number of Points-per-Subset) <= 8000 or 1000
The Pro version is unlimited and includes unlimited technical support. We will offer unlimited support on Lite and Standard versions unless support demands significantly increase for these versions. At which point we may charge a support fee for the Lite and Standard versions.
