Easy Way to Create Dynamic Flash Charts

For the Javascript Framework performance comparison I needed a good quality bar chart so I got my Microsoft Excel to do the work (as you can see quite good) however if you need to do some quick changes or to dynamically generate charts the answer is Open Flash Chart. It has a good API including .Net, PHP, Java, Perl and other languages support. Documentation is not great but enough to do your work. I played around with it loading data from .txt file and got the performance chart bellow easily done

You do not have flash installed.

Cool huh !!!

  1. Gah, everyone moans about the documentation, but as soon as I say I’m going to spend a couple of months writing it, everyone is up in arms about all the bugs that need fixing. Also no one EVER sends me any documentation – it is open source!! Everyone can contribute! I’d love to upload peoples docs and tutorials!

    So what did you find hard? What lessons did you learn? What advice would you give noobies? Write a blog post about it and I will link to you from the tutorials section!!


  2. @monk.e.boy – Don’t get me wrong the projects is good and has future. I will spend some time to write my first-time experience issues. Generally since you are the lead try getting the community more involved and decide which is the best for the project. I would like to see the project ported to ActionScript 3, but still i know how much work it is.

    Anyway you and the other people involved have done great work, I’m quite busy recently but when i have some spare time i will try put some meaningful comments and suggestions


  3. Hey, glad you think AS3 is a good idea. I have spent the last couple of months porting all the code to AS3 and it is almost at aplha release status!! w00t!!
