How to Include Charts in Visual Studio 2008 Express Edition using Microsoft chart controls

I recently learned how to include charts in visual studio 2008 express edition. If you want to do the same then you need do following things:
1) Get visual studio 2008 Express SP1 or higher version
2) Upgrade to .net 3.5 sp1 (if you use lower version of .net)
3) Download Microsoft chart controls : Download Link and then install it.

After you are done with Installing a ‘charts’ option will appear in the Data Tab in Toolbox. If you still do not see it you will need to add

1) System.Web.UI.DataVisualization.Charting

2) System.Windows.Forms.DataVisualization.Charting.

Just right-click pane -> choose items -> select the above namespaces in the .net framework components!

here’s a tutorial after you are successful at seeing the ‘charts’ option. click me .

And Let’s connect! I Look forward to Interacting with you on any of these people networks:
