Is it possible to use TeeChart (4.2019.3.15) in WinForms application (.NET Core 3 preview 4)

Post by bairog » Wed Apr 24, 2019 2:59 pm

Hello.
I'm using Visual Studio 2019 Pro (16.0.2) and .NET Core 3 SDK Preview 4.
I've create application from a Windows Forms App (.NET Core) template and added Steema.TeeChart.NET nuget package to my project (4.2019.3.15).
After that I've created Steema.TeeChart.Chart variable (because there is no Steema.TeeChart.TChart class in assembly I've referenced).
But it has less properties than Steema.TeeChart.TChart that I was using before for .NET 4.0 (for example Dock property is missing).
Moreover I cannot simply use this.Controls.Add(this.tChart1):

Code: Select all

cannot convert from 'Steema.TeeChart.Chart' to 'System.Windows.Forms.Control'
So is it possible to use TeeChart in WinForms application (.NET Core 3 preview 4)? If not - when are you planning begin?
According to latest new from Microsoft upcoming .NET 4.8 will have less features than .NET Core 3 (it will support .NET Standart 2.1) - so we are looking for retargeting our new Windows Forms projects to the most modern platform.
Thank you.

Hello,

We are preparing the existing TeeChart version for tests in the Net Core 3 Framework. We expect to be able to make a test version available soon. In the meantime, the current TeeChart NetStandard version can be used as a non-forms control - please find following an example of the use of TeeChart.NET Standard in an ASP.NET Core app:

Unfortunatelly ASP.NET Core app is not an option for us. Our software is fully desktop.
So we will wait for an updated version.

Not at the moment, no. As far as we understand from this blog post here, the roadmap for .NET Core/.NET looks like this:

We here at Steema Software are committed to complying with this timeline, and will have versions of TeeChart.NET ready for the Release Candidate of .NET Core 3.0 due in July 2019. We will be in touch with you personally as soon as we have a version of TeeChart.NET for .NET Core 3.0 which we feel is ready for client testing.

Hello,

Just as a footnote to Chris' official timeline. We are optimistic that we can have a version available for use, via Nuget, before mid June.

We've created a test NuGet package for .NET Core 3.0 preview 5 Windows Forms which you can download from here. You will be able to install this NuGet package into your version of Visual Studio by copying it to a local NuGet package source:

I've performed a quick test - everything is going fine for now..
It's really hard to work without WinForms designer in .NET Core - expecting VS team to add it soon. After that I'll be able to peform full testing.
Thank you for your job.
