Chart controls from Microsoft for VS 2008

Finally, there is addon Chart control from Microsoft fro Visual Studion 2008. You can download the Chart Controls from:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=130f7986-bf49-4fe5-9ca8-910ae6ea442c&DisplayLang=en
(Microsoft Chart Controls  for Microsoft Framework 3.5)
and http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=1D69CE13-E1E5-4315-825C-F14D33A303E9&displaylang=en
(Microsoft Chart Controls Add-on for Microsoft Visual Studio 2008).
I have used Dundas Chart Control for my previous projects with professional licence. It is a very nice control if you want to buy the licence. You can desing your chart visually with the Dundas wizard and you can get your chart ready in minutes. You can try the full function product free (with watermark on your charts while you are testing).
I have downloaded the sample environment for working with Microsoft Chart Controls. You can download the source code of the sample project here:
http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/mschart/Release/ProjectReleases.aspx?ReleaseId=1591
If you have issues about the control, you can post your question at MSDN forum:

Cascading DropDowLists for ListView editing and inserting

Here is a sample code for working with cascading dropdownlists in editing and inserting with the new ListView data control.
I updated the code for the released version.

<asp:ListView ID="ListView1" runat="server" DataKeyNames="CustomerId" OnItemInserting="ListView1_OnItemInserting"
