Subject: Open Source Cocoa graphing view framework released


Snowmint Creative Solutions LLC has released an open source graphing view
framework for Cocoa development on MacOS X. The SM2DGraphView framework is
available at (

This framework provides an NSView subclass which draws a graph of lines
and/or bars including axis labels. The SM2DGraphView class acts very much
like an NSTableView or NSBrowser; SM2DGraphView takes responsibility for
all of the drawing code but relies on a data source object to provide the
specific lines and points to draw. A delegate object can also be assigned
to a graph object to modify the behavior of the graph view.

The SM2DGraphView framework is a very easy to use graph view that should
work admirably for the average non-scientific application. The
SM2DGraphView class is not thread safe; it is not coded for high
performance drawing. If you need to draw lines with millions of data
points, you should look for other alternatives.

SM2DGraphView is used in Budget and Budget Planner, personal finance
software from Snowmint Creative Solutions LLC. (
