The chart is an image, the data grid is html

SoftwareFX’s ChartFX component is very useful in displaying so many different charts and in so many different ways. However, the current version of ChartFX lacks the ability to display a grid of data alongside with the bars in the chart. Instead of whining and crying about it, I came up with a solution.

Using HTML, I overlayed a grid on top of a chart and I was able to display the  grid of data, coinciding with the chart’s bars. With some improvisation and hard work, this idea worked like a charm.

*update: The newer version of ChartFX, ChartFX.Net, now comes with a grid data, but doesn’t work very smoothly. I created another version of this chart data grid for the .net version with scrolling data.
