Growth Chart SDK - The SDK enables developers to create customized data
management applications by embedding or integrating the functionality of Growth Charts into core business applications and platforms,
such as electronic medical record system. With its standards-based, Component Object Model (COM) architecture, the SDK enables our
Growth Chart technology to be embedded in both commercial and externally developed applications using any developer language,
knowledge and software to create applications, programming time is significantly reduced. And because you can embed our proven expertise
right into your applications and platforms, you can be assured that you have all the capabilities you need for manipulating with Growth

Object Model and Interfaces - The SDK is an ActiveX control. All the programming information is
stored in the DLL (GrowthChart.dll) as a type library and is therefore language independent. The SDK package
contains the DLL, sample code written in VB script (GrowthChart.htm), sample code written in C++ (folder GrowthChartClient),
and a readme.txt file.
