    Default Qt charts - licensing issue

    Hey,
    i am developing an application that will visualize data from databases ( drawing charts,etc. ). I wanted to develop this app in qt ( i have some experience with this framework ), but Qt charts are non avaliable under LGPL license ( GPL is not an option, my company does not want to share our code ). Would it be hard to write app in qt and to visualize data use some other library ( from boost for example ). Or is it better to just drop Qt for this project and use Windows Forms or MFC?
    What would you advise me?
    Greetings

    Default Re: Qt charts - licensing issue

    There are several 3rdparty libs available - most of them exist far longer than Qt Charts and offer more features. F.e. Qwt ( http://qwt.sourceforge.net ) - the one I'm maintaining - is available under the LGPL with some extra rules for static linking.
