Hi you all,
I intend to display data on my website in form of chart, but has yet to know how to create financial charts like those on Yahoo!Finance or other sites.
Is there some free package (a module, a control)?

Are you just talking about creating a line graph like the ones on Yahoo! Finance? If so, you have several options.
There are always 3rd party controls that vary in appearance and price; they range from free to a whole lotta money.
You can also write your own. Here is an article that shows the basic steps to writing a line graph:
This might help get you started at least (if that is the way you decide to go).

Could you tell me about some 3rd party controls? The most popular free control?

This is one I have personally used and found fairly easy to use:
I started getting fairly complicated in some of the stuff I wanted to do and I think I outgrew it, but I thought it was a very easy to use charting control and it's free. [:D]

First of all, thank you very much for your previous replies.
When attempting to use the WebChart, I faced some problems as follow:
1. I cannot find the XCustomEnd property in ChartControl. Meanwhile, using XValuesInterval
do not help display the last datetime point of X-axis correctly as the last datetime point selected from database (Note: I fetched a DataReader into the Chart)
How can I affect the last label on X-axis?
2. I am planning to draw a line chart of an stock index value series and a column chart of an transaction volume series in the same chart control.
Does the WebChart support the Line-Column on 2 Axes (as we see in Ms Excel)?
Let me see some your fine output if possible[8-|]
