This book provides everything you need to create advanced charts and graphics in your .NET applications. It shows you how to create a variety of graphics and charts that range from simple two-dimensional (2D) X-Y plots to complicated three-dimensional (3D) surface graphs using managed C# code. The author introduces readers to the C# graphics program in a simple way - simple enough to be easily followed by C# beginners who have never had experience in developing C# graphics and chart applications. You can learn from this book how to create a full range of color graphics applications and how to use C# controls to create impressive graphic and chart effects without having to buy expensive third-party add-on products.

A complete, in-depth instruction to practical chart and graphics programming in visual C# and GDI+. After reading this book and running the example programs, you will be able to create various sophisticated charts and graphics in your C# applications.

Ready-to-run example programs that allow you to explore the chart and graphics techniques described in the book. You can use these examples to get a better understanding of how the chart and graphics algorithms work. You can also modify the code or add new features to them to form the basis of your own programs. Some of the example code listings provided with this book are already sophisticated chart and graphics packages, and can be directly used in your own real-world applications.

Many C# classes in the sample code listings that you will find useful in your chart and graphics programming. These classes contain matrix manipulation, coordinate transformation, color maps, 2D and 3D chart user controls, as well as the other useful utility classes. You can extract these classes and plug them into your applications.

A chapter that contains a detailed discussion on how to integrate Microsoft Excel chart functionality into C# applications. This chapter is designed specifically for readers who prefer not to create C# chart programs from scratch, and would like to take advantage of Microsoft Excel's wide selection of chart types.

Is This Book for You?

You don't have to be an experienced C# developer or expert to use this book. The author designed this book to be useful to people of all levels of C# programming experience. In fact, if you have some experience with programming languages other than C#, you will be able to sit down in front of your computer, start up Microsoft Visual Studio .NET and C#, follow the examples that are provided with this book, and quickly become familiar with C# graphics programming. For those of you who are already experienced C# developers, this book has a lot to offer you as well. There is much information in this book about graphics and chart programming that is not available in any other C# tutorial and reference book. In addition, most of the example programs provided with this book can be directly used in your real-world application development. This book will provide you with a level of detail, explanation, instruction, and sample program code that will enable you to do just about anything that is graphics and charts related using visual C#.

The majority of the example programs in this book can be routinely used by C# developers and technical professionals. Throughout this book, the author emphasizes the usefulness of C# chart and graphics programming to real-world applications. If you follow this book closely, you will be able to easily develop various practical graphics and chart applications from simple 2D x-y plots to sophisticated 4D slice graphs.
