Easily create cross-platform interactive charts with the Highcharts .NET wrapper

Posted on December 19, 2016 by Vidar Brekke. Last modified on December 19, 2016.

Finally, the .NET community is able to take a full advantage of everyone’s favorite charting library without dealing with JavaScript, thanks to the Highcharts .NET wrapper.

Based on a decade of experience creating standards-based charting solutions for web and mobile, .NET developers may now leverage the full power of the Highcharts charting library, courtesy of Highsoft, the makers of Highcharts.

Developers are now able to create interactive cross-platform, mobile-friendly charts using the extensive Highcharts API (which includes both Highcharts as well as Highstock for financial charts) like any native .NET object using their favorite IDE and C# syntax (ASP.NET, MVC).

For .NET developers who aren’t comfortable with JavaScript or who prefer not to mix different programming languages, this time-saving solution will be of great convenience. 

Get started

On the server side you will need ASP .NET MVC 4+.  Visual Studio .Net 2012 and above are highly recommended if you would like to open product demos directly.

On the client side, no additional work is necessary. The resulting chart code generates data-driven charts using the rock-solid Highcharts JavaScript library, which dynamically scales across all modern browsers and all platforms (check browser compatibility).

Documentation and support

As you would come to expect, we have provided a gallery of available charts and sample code. Also included is the API documentation, where you’ll learn why Highcharts is the easiest way to create charts with .NET. You can access both here.

We also support .NET developers by email, forum and uservoice.

Where to download the wrapper?

The Highcharts .NET wrapper requires a separate license, and must be purchased in conjunction with a current Highcharts JS, or Highstock JS License.

You can download the trial version from our demo pages. To acquire a license for Highcharts .NET, please visit our shop.
