.Net graphics library

    I am looking for a .Net graphics library that would allow me to draw volatility curves or volatility sufaces from parameters. Then once the graphic is drawn, it would be nice to be able to grab the graphic and rotate it for different perspective, or be able to grab "control points" and be able to change the shape of the curve/surface.

    I guess it could be OpenGL or DirectX based, but I don't really care.

    Does anyone know of a control or library like that?

    the 3D can be accomplished in various ways, see for example matlab, JMSL library or AMIRA among many. Deformations by adding control points can be more tricky. You want to pull part of the graph and all the interconnected points follow? Maybe you could try something like Abaqus, but I have never used it myself.

    hope this helps.
  3. TeeChart can do it.

    Curious why are you doing this in .NET?

    Chart Director provides an excellent .NET charting implementation. I use them personally.

    Thanks for the response.

    Right, I know that R and Matlab can handle it. I need to be able to do it in realtime using a custom written C# app.

    I never heard of Abaqus. Do you have a link?

    Thanks for the response.

    Hmm, I will look into TeeChart. I want it in .Net because the rest of my app is written in .Net. I suppose it could be ActiveX as well.
    Does that increase my options?

    I will look into ChartDirector. This looks promising...
