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 2017 2013 2012, 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 .NET (Windows Forms, WPF), ASP.NET (Web Forms), ActiveX, 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 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.

Check it out at The Pie Chart offers three algorithms to prevent text from overlapping. Run our 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 two strengths, Pro, Standard

Charting Software varations: Pro, Standard
The Standard version has all the features and interfaces as our Pro version. All versions include Wpf, WinForm, WebForm, ActiveX, VCL, and DLL interfaces. All versions include 1200 plus properties, methods, and events.

The Standard version is limited to 8000 data points and 800 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
