I recently came across the Microsoft Chart Controls add-on for .NET 3.5. and wondered how well they could be implemented into LabVIEW front panels. After a few hours of playing about I managed to come up with this. To run this vi, you'll need the Chart Controls add-on from Microsoft, which you can download from here for free (less than 2Mb).
The block diagram is a mess, because I was just playing with the features, but it could easily be tidied up into neat little subvi packages.
OK, so I spent a little time cleaning this up, and now there's a second download (MSChartsdemo2.zip - LV2011) which contains a neater demonstration, with easier to understand code. It's still not fully refactored, but good enough I'd say
What do people think? I'm quite impressed with the glossy look of it all. There are plenty of different plot types to play with, just tweak the properties to your hearts content! This snapshot shows two plots in one control, same data plotted in different styles, with different colours and transparency levels.
