Welcome to the HyperGraphics website

HyperGraphics is a new object-orientated graphics library that allows rapid development of interactive graphics applications for use with Windows ® operating systems .

HyperGraphics can be used with the most popular rapid application systems available, including Microsoft Visual Studio .NET ®, Borland Delphi ® (versions 5, 6 and 7), Borland C++ ®, Microsoft Visual C++ ® and Microsoft Visual Basic ®.

Now also available for Microsoft .NET framework

The .NET version is available on the Evaluation copies page and includes examples for Visual Studio .NET 2003 ®.


HyperGraphics is particularly suited to displaying engineering/scientific data plots and map data. Many different line-styles are available and rounded labels can be produced with ease, including both date/time and numerical labelling. Other features include, automatic key generation, support for bar graphs and logarithmic axes. HyperGraphics also makes an excellent graphics engine for real-time control and data acquisition systems.

In addition to its charting capabilities, HyperGraphics can also be used as an interactive diagramming tool. It has many built-in objects, including connectors, sockets, shapes, multi-line textboxes, text-tip tools, and also comes with a rich-set of objects specifically designed for drawing Unified Modelling Language (UML) diagrams, electrical circuits and system diagrams. These features seamlessly combine with HyperGraphics' charting capabilities to provide a powerful multi-functional graphics engine.

The shareware program Schematic is a diagramming tool that has been written using HyperGraphics and shows some of the powerful diagramming features that HyperGraphics can bring to your software product.


HyperGraphics is a flexible and open graphics system that can be adapted easily to suit the target application. HyperGraphics allows you to create your own objects as well as modifying "off-the-shelf" objects from the comprehensive library. New objects can be created by combining instances of existing objects and existing objects can be modified by overriding events and adding user-defined properties.


Delphi users can also benefit from its extensive design-time capabilities. This allows HyperGraphics objects to be added to forms and configured at design-time thus saving development time and simplifying the run-time code. HyperGraphics is fully integrated with Delphi and has extensive on-line help available through the Integrated Development Environment.
