So, when you only need a simple set of display capabilities, where do you turn? Do you go out and buy a third party control which could be bulky and expensive or do you write your own in VB, allowing great customisation? In this article, you will learn how to write your own light version of the MS Chart control.

This light version is only 44KB when complied, a mere 1/20th of the size of the MS Chart control. You might thinking that this control only includes limited functionality, but your wrong. This control supports both line and bar graphs, point plotting, a legend and up to 15 data series (with different colours for each one).
