Charting & Reporting for WTL

I am looking for some open source Charing&Reporting library for Windows Template Library(WTL). So far I've not found any. Could you give some recommendation? Thanks a lot

Not to discourage you, but a lack of one is one of the reasons I switched back to MFC. WTL is very nice to program but there is so little 3rd party support that I gave up. No grid control either, I started writing my own but it's so much work... After the MFC update for VS2008 I gave up, there is no way a sole developer can implement all of that GUI functionality which means that MFC application will always be better looking / have an easier UI.

As a related question, I'm looking for a reporting component for MFC :) Actually I'm looking for a Crystal Reports replacement, it's too heavy and has too many features I don't use / need. Something like the Access report designer would be ideal, if I could set the values from code (i.e., not data-bound).

Is there some reason hosting an ActiveX control in your WTL app will not work?

You can find some hand-crafted WTL charting and reporting components on but they all require much debugging and polishing.
