Unique Features

Advanced Pivot Charting - the pivot charting capabilities embedded in the product are only comparable to the ones provided by leading reporting tools. However none of these solutions provides this level of flexibility and ease of configuration inside SharePoint nor the advanced data visualization of Nevron.

Expressions Everywhere - nearly all aspects of the web part (from the data source connection, through the data aggregation and data visualization) can be controlled by expressions, which means that you can bind nearly everything to user defined preferences and data.

Speed - the fastest rendering chart inside SharePoint - in both 2D and 3D modes.

3D Charting - Nevron Chart for SharePoint has the best layout in 3D and the most advanced feature set in 3D - including: 11 predefined lighting modes, largest charting types set in 3D, biggest set of shapes in 3D (applicable to pies, bars, markers, areas etc.)

2D Charting - Nevron Chart for SharePoint is the only chart for SharePoint to provide Adobe Photoshop like image filter effects, which are applicable to all chart elements - these include bevel, emboss, lighting filters etc. When it comes to shadows it is the only chart for SharePoint which has soft shadows (based on Gaussian and Radial blur image filters).

2D/3D Consistency - Nevron Chart for SharePoint is consistent in 2D/3D modes. For example you can map gradients and patterns to elements in both 2D and 3D. Colors specified in 2D are inherited by materials in 3D. You can mix 2D and 3D chart areas in a single chart control.

XY and XYZ scatters - the industry leading support for XY and XYZ scatters inside SharePoint.

XML Formatted Texts - this feature is applicable to all elements which display text. It allows you to mix fonts, mix bold, italic underline formatting and many other advanced features like different fill styles, shadows, image filters etc. - all inside a single label, title etc. XML formatted texts use a format similar to HTML, but with many more advanced options.

Blazing Fast Chart Designer - Nevron Chart for SharePoint features an advanced chart designer, which is built with jQuery UI. The designer supports all major web browsers and does not require any plugins (like Silverlight or Flash). It does not use postbacks, MS ASP.NET controls or MS AJAX, which ensures that the client-server communication is brought to a minimum. The server-side UI processing is pure HTML and script rendering. The client-side is pure HTML, CSS and jQuery JavaScript.
