Open Source Flash Charts

We frequently require flash charts to present data in an effective way on our websites. for this purpose we can use paid charting controls as provided by ComponentArt or Telerik.

What if we get good effect with an open source control?

# Sketch Bars
# Area Chart
# Area Chart – 2
# Bars + Lines

ASP.NET Integeration
The control come with a .NET Helper classes which allows us to integrate the charts easily with our web sites.

    You can also use FusionCharts Free (, which is a free component but not open source. It has a number of charts like the stacked column chart and the combination chart which are not covered by OFC. And yes, FusionCharts Free also integrates very easily with ASP.NET

    I guess I am making it sound like a promotion but just thought it could be of help:)

      Hi Sanket,
      I forgot to mention about fusion charts in the post as they are also quite good option. But i used them in some of my projects some time back and the free version charts have a Demo text which is removed only in purchased versions. And sometimes when customers are not ready to buy the product then it becomes a need to use opensource charts.

    What you are talking about is the evaluation of the commercial version. The free version ( has no demo text or watermarks anywhere.

    Thanks for this. What I like about this chart control is that I can use it in both .NET and PHP.
