About VARCHART XNet ASP.NET

Add network diagram functionality to your application.

VARCHART XNet lets you graphically display, edit and print your data in the form of network diagrams to display scenarios such as computer networks, workflow or class diagrams. The built-in layout algorithm and the integrated scheduling module are ideal for PERT diagrams in project management. You can implement an initial graphical representation of your data in a matter of minutes. Nearly all graphical layout options of VARCHART XNet can be configured with the convenient help of property pages.

Implement an initial graphical representation of your data in a matter of minutes. Nearly all graphical layout options of VARCHART XNET can be configured with the comfortable help of property pages.

The powerful application programming interface (API) offers even more options that can be modified at run time. You can set all options to be adjusted by the user. Events let your application react to your customer's interactions (for example, to validate data).

Benefit from the wide range of design options:

  • The appearance of nodes (color, format, background, font, graphics file) can be specified by a variety of options. It can be made dependent on data in the form of logical expressions or assignment tables. Annotations, symbols or graphics can be added to nodes
  • The four different link types (FF, FS, SF, and SS) can be shown graphically. Annotations can be added to links. The appearance of links can vary
  • Positions of nodes and links can be kept in data fields to be stored and restored
  • Automatic layout of nodes to maintain clarity in large or complicated networks
  • Groups can be clustered for display
  • The nodes can be arranged in chronological order

The value and usefulness of network diagrams increase by their degree of interactivity. Let the user

  • Edit the data of nodes and links
  • Create, delete or move nodes and links
  • Sort and group nodes
  • Change the flow direction between horizontal and vertical
  • Zoom and autoscroll in the diagram
  • Navigate via the worldview
  • Preview and layout pages for printing
  • Export the diagram to the formats: VMF, WMF, JPG, BMP, EPS, GIF, PCX, PNG, TIF
  • Place text or graphics boxes in the diagram in order to display additional information
  • Drag nodes and links into a different instance of VARCHART XNet or into an instance of VARCHART XTree or VARCHART XGantt
  • Collapse and expand groups

The integrated scheduler lets you calculate the Early Start, Early Finish, Late Start, Late Finish, Total Float and Free Float. The calculation is based on the duration of the various activities, their logical dependencies and the project start or project end.
