Silverlight Charting component, Visifire v1.0 Beta released


We are happy to announce that Visifire V1.0 Beta has been released. Visifire is a Silverlight based Open Source data visualization component which you can use to create stunning charts within minutes. We have put effort to make sure that you get the best looking charts with minimal effort and time. You need not know anything about Silverlight to use Visifire charts. Simple HTML knowledge is enough. All charts come in a single package of approximately 135KB.

We started working on this project since Silverlight 1.1 Alpha was released. Though recently we ported the code to Silverlight 2.0, most of the code in this project uses SL1.1 features. We are in the process of refactoring the code to make the best use of what Silverlight 2.0 provides.

In order to showcase the features of Visifire, we have created a web based Chart Designer. Chart Designer can help you to create charts quickly. But it contains only a subset of Visifire properties. You can edit the generated XML for fine control.

You can see all currently available chart types in our Chart Gallery . Yeah! We will becoming up with additional chart types soon!!…

Thank you for your attention,

Visifire Team.

    Nice component. GPL license is not so good … Why don’t you use LGPL?
    Anyway you have bug with localisation (I try send this bug on forum).
