ProEssentials v9 Pro Winforms for .Net Framework (Window), by Gigasoft, Inc.

ProEssentials.Chart.Net.WinForms.nupkg is for .Net Framework 4.8 and earlier. Also search for our .Net60.Winforms file

Note it's best to use the Gigasoft (local) nugets that will be installed with the ProEssentialsv9 eval or if you purchase ProEssentials. The eval trial download is hassle free at The local nuget default install location is c:\ProEssentials9\Nuget If your system has the DotNet CLI available, our setup.exe will automatically set Gigasoft (Local) as a local Nuget source. Else if DotNet CLI is not available, we recommend installing the DotNet CLI and reinstall ProEssentials.

Note, first time dragging a tool from toolbox may require Visual Studio be running with Admin privileges. This Nuget uses an embedded resourse that must unpack upon first use to support the designer. Subsequent uses will not require Admin.

  1. Gigasoft's engineers will no-hassle/quickly answer your questions and provide programming services as needed. Just ask.

  2. Best to download our full eval from

  3. ProEssentials is ideal for large mission critical data visualization projects with many variations of proprietary interactive charts.

  4. Gigasoft's attention to rendering detail quickly creates a clean professional end-user experience.

  5. ProEssentials provides charts packed with data and annotations producing your proprietary visions mostly free of overlapping text and odd behaviors.

This Nuget is fine for a first look, however, for a complete functional evaluation, including example projects, local help... Download the full eval :

The eval download is the best way to learn ...

  • examples 000, 100, 400 to know the basics
  • examples 007, 014, 105, 107, 125 to know how to interact with chart programmatically
  • examples 015, 005, 101, 026, 027, 028 to know about annotations
  • examples 012, 013 for multiple axes, and 103 and 104 to overlap multiple axes
  • example 005, and 132 to know how to create custom axes
  • the more you play with our demo projects, the faster you master ProEssentials.

Basic Walk-Through: Winforms C#

  1. Place a Pego control on your form. Default control name will be pego1.

  2. Add a Form load event, Form1_Load. Tip, double click the forms top title/caption bar to quickly create a form load event.

  3. Paste this code into your Load event handler.... Build, Run, Right-Click the chart to tinker with UI.

pego1.PeString.MainTitle = "Hello World"; pego1.PeString.SubTitle = "";

pego1.PeData.Subsets = 2; // Subsets = Rows // pego1.PeData.Points = 6; // Points = Columns // pego1.PeData.Y[0, 0] = 10; pego1.PeData.Y[0, 1] = 30; pego1.PeData.Y[0, 2] = 20; pego1.PeData.Y[0, 3] = 40; pego1.PeData.Y[0, 4] = 30; pego1.PeData.Y[0, 5] = 50; pego1.PeData.Y[1, 0] = 15; pego1.PeData.Y[1, 1] = 63; pego1.PeData.Y[1, 2] = 74; pego1.PeData.Y[1, 3] = 54; pego1.PeData.Y[1, 4] = 25; pego1.PeData.Y[1, 5] = 34;

pego1.PeString.PointLabels[0] = "Jan"; pego1.PeString.PointLabels[1] = "Feb"; pego1.PeString.PointLabels[2] = "Mar"; pego1.PeString.PointLabels[3] = "Apr"; pego1.PeString.PointLabels[4] = "May"; pego1.PeString.PointLabels[5] = "June";

pego1.PeString.SubsetLabels[0] = "For .Net Framework"; pego1.PeString.SubsetLabels[1] = "or MFC, ActiveX, VCL"; pego1.PeString.YAxisLabel = "Simple Quality Rendering";

pego1.PeColor.SubsetColors[0] = Color.FromArgb(60, 0, 180, 0); pego1.PeColor.SubsetColors[1] = Color.FromArgb(180, 0, 0, 130);

pego1.PeColor.BitmapGradientMode = false; pego1.PeColor.QuickStyle = Gigasoft.ProEssentials.Enums.QuickStyle.LightShadow; pego1.PeTable.Show = Gigasoft.ProEssentials.Enums.GraphPlusTable.Both; pego1.PeData.Precision = Gigasoft.ProEssentials.Enums.DataPrecision.NoDecimals; pego1.PeFont.Label.Bold = true; pego1.PePlot.Method = Gigasoft.ProEssentials.Enums.GraphPlottingMethod.Bar; pego1.PePlot.Option.GradientBars = 8; pego1.PePlot.Option.BarGlassEffect = true; pego1.PeLegend.Location = Gigasoft.ProEssentials.Enums.LegendLocation.Left; pego1.PePlot.DataShadows = Gigasoft.ProEssentials.Enums.DataShadows.ThreeDimensional; pego1.PeFont.FontSize = Gigasoft.ProEssentials.Enums.FontSize.Large; pego1.PePlot.SubsetLineTypes[0] = Gigasoft.ProEssentials.Enums.LineType.MediumSolid; pego1.PePlot.SubsetLineTypes[1] = Gigasoft.ProEssentials.Enums.LineType.MediumDash; pego1.PePlot.Option.MinimumPointSize = Gigasoft.ProEssentials.Enums.MinimumPointSize.MediumLarge;

// This enables data hot spots, But we need to define code in the HotSpot event // pego1.PeUserInterface.HotSpot.Data = true;

// These settings will be used for all charts // pego1.PeConfigure.RenderEngine = Gigasoft.ProEssentials.Enums.RenderEngine.Direct2D; pego1.PeConfigure.PrepareImages = true; pego1.PeConfigure.CacheBmp = true; pego1.PeConfigure.AntiAliasGraphics = true; pego1.PeConfigure.AntiAliasText = true;

// Call this at end of setting properties // pego1.PeFunction.ReinitializeResetImage();

pego1.Refresh(); // call standard .NET Refresh method to force paint
