RE: show exported data as an chart

For all my charting needs I use FusionCharts : http://www.fusioncharts.com/

I currently still use the free Flash version, but they now have a fully JavaScript only version.

Building impressive graphs from simple XML couldn't be easier!

RE: show exported data as an chart

Hi Intose,

If you want simple, this is a system I came up with a while back, just scale your data values into the height parameter.
Tweak the width and colours as you wish.

Extend to as many columns and as may stack levels as needed. You can add <title> or <alt> tags in the divs so the user can hover for more info.


<!doctype html>

<table cellpadding=5 cellspacing=5 border=0>

<!-- First Column -->
<td valign="bottom">
<div style="width:50px; height:400px; background-color:#8888ff;"></div>
<!-- End of First Column -->

<!-- Second Column -->
<td valign="bottom">
<div style="width:50px; height:100px; background-color:#88eeaa;"></div>
<div style="width:50px; height:270px; background-color:#8800ff;"></div>
<!-- End of Second Column -->
