.NET Libraries for SCADA animation


Thread Starter



I am interested if anyone has run across some good libraries for use with .NET, particularly C#. I am interested in libraries that support screen animation of text or dials, charts, etc. based on live data. The libraries should also offer Active X or ASP.NET support. Ideally, I would look for source code to be supplied with a development license.
I am working at developing a small scale HMI product using .NET (C#) that can create animation screens for both Windows GUIs and ASP.NET screen forms. Generally, the problem is that the animation for Web forms is limited. I have seen some products using AJAX (ASynchronous Javascript and XML). Are there good Web animation solutions out there?
I've just started very similar project - SCADA & .NET & Win/Web.
So far I've found (but yet not explore):

- http://www.kineticart.co.uk/KineticaRTControls.asp
(mentioned earlier, WinForms only, commercial)

- http://www.infosoftglobal.com/FusionCharts/PS/Overview.asp?gMenuItemId=2
(dynamic charts, based on Flash as opposite to the AJAX, Web only, commercial)

- http://www.dotnetcharting.com/gallery/default.aspx
(interactive charts with drilldown etc., Web and Win (separate licence), commercial)

- http://www.asp.net/default.aspx?tabindex=9&tabid=47
(ATLAS - AJAX-based framework for ASP.NET 2.0, free)

- http://www.magicajax.net
(another AJAX-based framework for ASP.NET 1.1/2.0, open-source)

- http://www.dart.com/powerweb/livecontrols.asp
(set of 20+ AJAX-based controls for ASP.NET 1.1, commercial)

- http://www.vgdotnet.com/
(WinForms only)

no one solution seems perfect and complete for Web&Win project, but togehter may be

If you'll find better one give feedback here,
