Generating downloadable HTML file that displays charts RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am currently developing a Microsoft Outlook add-In for my bachelor thesis that runs through all the emails in a selected mailbox and gathers different information about the answering behaviour of the user.

    What I want to do now is display all this information in a visually appealing manner, so I figured maybe I could generate a HTML file with lots of graphs and box plots etc.

    I know I can create a HTML file with C# (e.g. with HTMLTextWriter), but I want to display complex graphs and I currently don't know if a fitting framework exists. Is there a way to do this?
