See you there!
In yesterday's announcement of the December 08 release of Charting for Silverlight, I outlined some of the new Charting features and mentioned a forthcoming update to my ChartBuilder tool to show off the new features. (Background reading for ChartBuilder: Introduction and "user's guide", Updates.)
The new ChartBuilder is now live on the web - and I've even updated my sample screenshot! :)

ChartBuilder continues to be tremendously useful to me as an interactive Charting test application. The plethora of knobs, dials, and switches that represent a user experience designer's worst nightmare [ :) ] enable a degree of scenario testing that has helped find and fix a wide variety of issues. Furthermore, the interactive nature of the tool - and the ease with which it enables mocking up samples for answers on the Silverlight Controls and Silverlight Toolkit forum - has really seemed to help people understand Charting more easily.
My hope is that ChartBuilder can be just as useful to you - so if you've got ideas after using it, please let me know!
