Hi,

Does anyone know of any 3rd party graph/chart controls for ASP.NET MVC which provides the following

1) Scatter charts (in which the plot points can be the picture of employees + If we click an employee picture (point), it opens up another page/chart


2) Charts or graphs which from one point to another color can be changed ? for example
a line from point (0,15) to (10,30) has a green color. The same line from (10,30) to (20,60) has a different color ?

I am willing to buy any controls which have these things

I have already tried RAD / TELERIK / KENDO, dev express, Component Art and Component One.

yes i did. as i said i have tried third party controls (names given in my post).

The main thing for me are employee pictures which should come in the chart, rather then the points

You could start with this particular kind of plots, instead of using the whole library before you learned that it's good for you.
Please see my answer. In worst case, you can modify the library to add images. If you have to, search for some more, but this time more thoroughly.

I suspect you have overlooked the feature, if you tried that many libraries, not 100% sure though. For example, you can use:
http://canvasjs.com/html5-javascript-scatter-point-chart[^],
http://demo.huihoo.com/rgraph/docs/scatter.html[^].

I believe you can find a lot more if you expand your search properly. First of all, it does not have to be MVC or even ASP.NET. It's absolutely clear that you can generate appropriate Javascript data and invoke graphics from your ASP.NET application. Moreover, this is much better to stay away from strong coupling with any particular server-side technology and better for performance.

[EDIT]

If you have to, you can always make a derived work from the Javascript library, to add images. Javascript libraries are all open-source, by definitions.

And, by the way, I would like to warn you against using proprietary (and non-open) libraries, as it can lead to vendor lock in: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vendor_lock-in[^].
