Graphs & Charts are used to illustrate many types of data and are not limited to the simpler types such as line, bar, and circle. They help to make facts clearer and more understandable. Beautiful Graphs and Charts always adds to any report or analysis.
One such chart is Gantt Chart, Gantt chart is a specialized bar chart used to provide a graphical overview and schedule of tasks. It helps in analysis of planed goals and actuals results. This is a chart with rectangular bars.
In one of my project I was required to create a graphical report to compare forecasted and actual Milestone data. So I felt Gantt Chart is the best way to display the comparison. After some research on google I found an easy way of creating Gantt Chart using Google Charts API.
Here is a sample code for it

For any queries, confusion or R&D you can consult Google Chart API Documentation or you can also post your queries here.

In this post I am sharing my source code for creating a simple, useful yet beautiful animated banner with JQuery.
Here is the source:

<div id=”imageDiv2″ class=”right”><img id=”image2″ src=”images/image5.gif” alt=”” /></div>
border: 1px solid #000;

Now you can also see the demo here.
Its almost 2 AM here at my place, need a sound sleep from so many days but before that let me share this trick with you all.
Here is a small excerpt from my code
AxWebBrowser wb = new AxWebBrowser ();
object vPost = null;
object vHeaders = null;
object obj = null;
object url = “http://www.yoururl.com/yourpage”;
object cPostData = null;
cPostData = “var1=data1&var2=datra2&var3=data3&var4=data4”;
vHeaders = “Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded” + Convert.ToChar(10) + Convert.ToChar(13);
(You can add other headers as required)
vPost = ASCIIEncoding.ASCII.GetBytes((string)cPostData);
wb.Navigate2(ref url, ref obj, ref obj, ref vPost, ref vHeaders);
This is all it takes to post data programmatically to a page using Web Browser control in you desktop application.
Hope this helps you, if you have any queries please feel free to ask.
