XtraCharts Screencasts

I might have said it before but if not, I love screencasts. They are a great way quickly learn a product's feature(s) and/or expericence how easy the product can be once you see it in action.

Well, I've just finished narrating some good screenscasts on our XtraCharts Suite.

I think you'll find them interesting and informative. You can find the lessons ** Here **.

The lessons are around 5 mins each and cover various topics that range in difficulty from the basics to more advanced usage.

Here is a breakdown:

Lesson 1: Creating a Chart
The first lesson demonstrates you how to create a simple chart. You will get acquainted with its visual elements, and add a series of points to it. This tutorial is very helpful as a general visual introduction to our charting component.

Lesson 2: Bind a Chart to Data Using Templates
This lesson shows you how to bind a ChartControl to data. We will use an MS Access sample database as the datasource. The data display customization will be done through series templates.

Lesson 3: Binding an Individual Series to Data
The purpose of this lesson is to show you how to bind a ChartControl to data, so that each data series is bound individually to a particular datasource.

Lesson 4: Creating a Web Chart Application
In this lesson we will create a simple Web application that uses a WebChartControl. The chart will be bound to a MS Access sample database, with chart data filters used to select series data.

Lesson 5: Using Secondary Axes
This lesson is intended to explain the purpose of secondary axes in XtraCharts. It shows you how to create secondary axes, and also several tips on how to improve a chart's visual appearance.  

I hope you enjoy them and if you have suggestions or would like to see other screencasts, just let me know.
