So like many personal development projects, I have a few ASP.NET applications I am working on that have no money backing them and I need to create reports.  So for the past week or two I have been looking for a good free .NET charting component that I can use to create bar and pie charts for my ASP.NET application.

So far, I have found one free control called "WebChart" provided by Carlos Aguilar Mares via his website, a link to the control is here.

Overall I am very happy with his control, however it does take some manipulation to get things laid out correctly if you are using datasets that have large (20+ character) element titles as the legends and row indicators are sometimes rendered in a non visible location.

I found this to be a very helpful tool for creating simple to moderatley complex data charts. If anyone knows of more "Free" chart components please let me know.
