Welcome to Chestysoft

At Chestysoft we offer a range of ASP and ASP.NET components as well as ActiveX / OCX controls. All our components have free trial versions available for evaluation. See below for a summary of each product and a link to full details, trial downloads and online purchase pages.

ASP Components

These are all DLL based components which are designed to run in server side ASP scripts. Many of them have functionality that can be used in other environments, particularly Cold Fusion or ASP.NET. Follow the links to the product pages for full details of each component, instruction manuals, examples etc.

We now have 64 bit versions of all our ASP components. See the product pages for details.

csImageFile - A powerful server side image component.

This component can resize, edit and join images. It supports JPG, GIF, BMP, PNG, PSD, PCX, TIF and WBMP files and can also export to PDF. Use it to create thumbnails, change JPG compression quality, add text, draw lines and shapes and much more. Read and edit IPTC and Exif data. It can be used with csASPUpload to process user uploads. More...

csASPUpload - Save user uploads on the server.

This component is used to save files that have been uploaded through a browser using HTTP. Other uses include capturing uploaded images for csImageFile to edit, and saving files posted by some of our ActiveX controls. More...

csDrawGraph - Create bar charts, pie charts, line graphs.

This can create 2D graphs and stream them to the browser in GIF or other formats. A wide range of properties allow for customisation. More...

csASPGif - Create and edit animated GIFs.

This component can create and edit GIFs, including animations. It can be used to edit frames, build animations from individual images or extract frames. It can resize animated GIFs. More...

csASPZipFile - Create zip files and control downloads.

Create zip files on the server "on the fly" More...

csFTPQuick - Transfer files between servers by FTP.

This component can connect to a remote FTP server and upload or download files. More...

ASP.NET Components

The following components are designed specifically for ASP.NET although csASPNetGraph can also be used in general .NET applications.

csASPNetGraph - Create line graphs, bar and pie charts.

This produces graphs and charts that can be streamed to the browser in GIF or other formats, or saved to disk. In Windows Forms applications they can be exported to a picture box control for display. More...

csNetUpload - Save HTTP uploads.

This saves files uploaded by HTTP. It can be used to save files uploaded through our ActiveX controls and can also be used for passing uploaded images into our csImageFile component. More...

csNetDownload - Control downloads from a script.

Similar to the classic ASP component csFileDownload but for .NET. More...

Component Registration

We provide a free tool for registering DLL and OCX components. It uses a Windows interface rather than the command line, making it quick and easy to use. More...

ActiveX / OCX Controls

These are all visual OCX controls that can be used in a variety of programming environments. They may be used with compiled applications written with tools such as Visual Basic or Delphi, or they may be used as client side controls in Microsoft Internet Explorer. They can be used in .NET applications.

csXImage - View and edit images, scan and upload

This control can be used to view and edit images in a variety of formats. The image editing functionality is very similar to csImageFile but it is a visual control and it can be distributed with compiled applications or used client side in Internet Explorer. It also has Twain support for scanning and can upload images to a remote server. More...

csXGraph - Create and display 2D graphs.

This control creates and displays bar charts, pie charts, stacked bar charts and line graphs. More...

We have three graph components, csXGraph, csDrawGraph and csASPNetGraph which produce the same types of graphs and have similar properties. The differences are in the environments where they are used and the licence types. Refer to the product pages and instructions for full details.

csXThumbUpload - Upload multiple files with previews.

Preview images and resize before uploading. Use with any file and display the icon as a preview. Supports HTTP or FTP. More...

csXMultiUpload - Select multiple files for HTTP upload.

This control allows a user to select multiple files and upload them to a remote server using HTTP. More...

csXPostUpload - Upload batches of files using HTTP.

This control allows a user to upload batches of files from a folder or the complete contents of a folder. The control can also be used to select files programmatically instead of by the user so it can provide upload support to a variety of environments. More...

csXPostUpload allows the programmer freedom to select files, and move or delete them after uploading. If it is used in a web browser it must be used with the permission of the user, and it is not supplied with a signed CAB file. csXMultiUpload will only allow the user to select files and this is supplied with a signed CAB file.

Cold Fusion

We have a free Cold Fusion custom tag for resizing JPEG images - CFX_JpegResize. For more advanced image manipulation we recommend using csImageFile.

Several of our ASP components can be used in Cold Fusion, including csASPGif, csDrawGraph and csASPZipFile.

Cold Fusion demos are available here.

We can offer ASP enabled web hosting with our components installed. More...
