The Polar Chart Control is similar to the Scientific Graph in that the developer
uses data-sets containing both y and x axis components. Each data-point
is assigned its own independent x and y value. See YData
and XData. See example 200 within demo
to learn how to create a simple polar chart.
There is no horizontal scrolling, however, the Polar Chart, Smith Chart, and Rose Chart components support
zooming with a high level of detail in grid line restructuring to best fit the shape and amount of zoom.
Like the Graph and Scientific Graph, the Polar Chart and Smith Chart supports
Also, like the Graph and Scientific Graph, multiple axes are included.
3 o'clock, the other at 6 o'clock. Within the demo, see example
Also supported is cursor tracking. This features shows the graph coordinates/data-point
value for the location of the mouse cursor. As the user moves the mouse
over the graph/data-points, the corresponding graph coordinates are displayed
in the top-left corner of the control. See CursorPromptTracking.
The Graph and Scientific Graph also support this feature.
The Smith Chart Control is used primarily by Electrical Engineers. Its designed
to plot real and imaginary components of circuit and cable characteristics.
The Admittance Chart is also possible.

Rose Chart / Rose Plot
The Rose Chart - Rose Plot is a combination of a polar chart and a histogram. It plots
the frequency or percentage of occurrences data shows up at a particular
angle or direction. Mostly used to help visualize cumulative wind direction
or wave direction data but also used anytime you need to show a histogram related to direction.
Within demo, see example 204.
