Is it possible to plot Contour chart in the class PanelChart which is used to build a chart into a larger application?

Yes, this is possible to do with the IMSL C# Contour class. It is not clearing if you are asking if we have a contour plot class or if you are aware of the class but need to know if it can be put in a PanelChart. We do have a contour class, it is part of the IMSL.Chart2D name space. There are two general examples on its usage in the help file, they are called ContourEx1 and ContourEx2. Both show a general example of how to use the contour class. But neither example is in a PanelChart, but rather both are in a FrameChart.

To see a PanelChart example, open up the ReadMe.html file located in the main IMSLCS650 directory. Look at the section called “Chart Programmer’s Guide”, there is an HTML and PDF version. Open the HTML version and look in Chapter 1: Introduction and open the section entitled, “Adding a Chart to an Application”. The example there is for a line chart, but the Contour Example code from the Help file can easily be substituted.

Also, I can’t tell from your post but if you do not already own the IMSL C# library please contact out sales staff they will be able to guide you through the process of evaluating the library. If you already own IMSL C# and are under a valid support agreement, feel free to contact out post-sales technical staff for further assistance if you don’t get the information you need here from someone else.
