This document describes what assemblies are required by applications, which use the functionality of the WinForms Chart Control. Some of the assemblies are essential, while others - which provide an additional functionality - can be optionally deployed depending on your requirements.

Note that if you use other DevExpress components in your application, using and deploying them should comply with the corresponding EULA documents. For more details on licensing information and the redistribution policy of DevExpress, refer to Redistribution and Deployment.
