Finally I’ve found the time to make the last work on ChartPart 2.0 for SharePoint. I have been working on and off on this release for quite some time – but now it’s here!
ChartPart 2.0 for SharePoint is a Web Part that allows you to instantly create charts based on your existing SharePoint lists. You can make columns, bars, pies and even 3D charts.
ChartPart version 1.0 was released last year and have had up until now close to 10.000 downloads, which I’m very proud of. I’ve received awesome feedback on the Codeplex site, on Twitter, my blog and when I met people and told them that I was the one who made it.
ChartPart 2.0 has been in beta/RC for quite some time and has had about 4.000 downloads, which also is awesome! People have been asking me when is it due, when is it ready…and now it’s done! It’s uploaded and free to download. You can even get the source and make your own implementation.
ChartPart 2.0 contains a number of new features such as; better 3D charts, more customization etc. But the most interesting two things are 1) you don’t have to install it in the GAC (which several people asked med about) and 2) you can connect the ChartPart to a list view and filter the graph.
For a full list of features just head on over to the ChartPart 2.0 website on Codeplex.
Another interesting feature that is new in 2.0 is that you can edit the .webpart files and set a Lock Down Mode. This allows you to restrict your users from editing certain properties, such as colors, graph types etc. This is one feature that I hope can make the ChartPart 2.0 be used in larger companies.
I’d like to thank all the thousands of people who has helped me out by downloading ChartPart 1.0 and those who has submitted issues on Codeplex. A special thanks to those who helped me with the translation into other languages; Arash Aghajani, Frank, Alexander Bautz, Anders Dissing..
What are you waiting for, go download it…
