||Strengths: Good looking charts, Interactivity at client side, AJAX Enabled, Drill down supported, Export as img
Weaknesses: Uses XML to connect to SQL. Doesn't directly access SQL database.
Details: I've used both FusionCharts & FusionCharts Free for my ASP.NET projects and found them very easy to use. The charts are animated and good to look at. They offer AJAX and drill-down capabilities. I just wish they had an ASP.NET API which could help me build the XML data, rather than having to use string concatenation/XML objects to build it myself. While that's not tough, an automatic API is always welcome.
