The Chart control is a chart object that exposes events. When you add a chart to a worksheet, Visual Studio creates a Chart object that you can program against directly without having to traverse the Microsoft Office Excel object model.

You can add Chart controls to a Microsoft Office Excel worksheet at design time or at run time in a document-level project.
All formatting that can be applied to a Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Chart can also be applied to a Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.Chart control. This includes borders, fonts, chart type, gridlines, legend, and data labels.
