Google Charts for Asp.Net now on Codeplex

image I have received very positive feedback on my Asp.Net control for Google charts so I decided to place it up on Codeplex to allow people to participate and add code to the project.

I am currently working on a project roadmap so please let me know if you are interested in participating. One feature I have already begun work on is giving the control support for data binding.

Here is some example data binding code I have got working:

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    chart.DataSource = GetDataSource();
    chart.DataBind();
}

private DataTable GetDataSource()
{
    DataTable table = new DataTable();
    
    table.Columns.Add("Type", typeof(string));
    table.Columns.Add("Jan", typeof(float));
    table.Columns.Add("Feb", typeof(float));
    table.Columns.Add("Mar", typeof(float));

    table.Rows.Add("Men", 68, 78, 88);
    table.Rows.Add("Women", 68, 58, 78);
    table.Rows.Add("Both", 88, 48, 98);
    return table;
}

I am just binding to a simple DataTable which has one column containing the labels for the chart and multiple other columns which contain the data for the chart. The code above produces the following chart:

I look forward to seeing this project improve.
