New DVT Client Side Charting Solution

The New DVT Client Side Charting Solution provides the following benefits:

  • Client Side Resizing: Ability to resize and fit to containers without the need to go back to the server for layout.  
  • Improved Server Scalability: Layout is offloaded to the client, reducing server workload and increasing scalability of applications.
  • Rich Set of Features:

    • Over 30+ chart types
    • Redesigned zoom and scroll
    • Marquee zoom and selection
    • Redesigned Time axis
    • Hide and show series and ability to change layout with client side rescale
    • Improved data labeling

New Gauges are now focused on the stamping use cases and
support input. Gauge types include: LED, status meter, dial, and the new
rating gauge.

New Visualization: Diagram

Diagram can be used to visualize different sets of
data by displaying nodes and relationships between them. Diagram is
currently available as a runtime-only component, and provides a
pluggable framework for the application developers to define custom
layouts in javascript. Design time for Diagram will be available in a future release.

Diagram is a very powerful component that can be used to create very different visualizations, such as this arc Diagram:
