I'd say for dynamic data that keeps updating - Direct2D is the best choice. I've never used these charts in a production app and can't vouch for their quality. I only helped port them from Silverlight Toolkit. They seem to be more geared towards static visualizations though.

Hi AminGanjali , As @xyzzer mentioned , charter seems to be fine for small static visualizations., Though i have few success in making it dynamic by adding/removing series in real time (with 50-70 unique entries) , I have encountered performances issues while doing it most frequently with large data set.If your stacking more than one chart in a page , it definitely a head ache for the end user. (Especially using it in ARM powered tablets .. Eg;, Surface ) .Better go with the Direct2D as proposed by xyzzer.

Thanks, it seems I should write my own d2d charter :)
