  1. Sample Chart Works With Setxmlurl But Not Setxmldata

    Figured out my issue... *head desk.* Forgot about the fact that I needed to output the right context for javascript ... thus I needed extra quotes and +'s. Apparently the swf is able to pick-up/recover from improper content... which made figuring out this issue way more complicated. myChart.setXMLData("this should all //<-- newline here... INCORRECT be on one line" ); is obviously not the same as myChart.setXMLData("this should all" + // <-- CORRECT "be on one line" ); Lose focus for a second and somebody will get hurt...
  2. Sample Chart Works With Setxmlurl But Not Setxmldata

    Thanks for the response! Still a little confused (and still don't have it working), though. So I gather that my issue is with reference paths to my js and swf files?... but this doesn't explain to me why I was having the issue I was. If my path to the swf or js file was wrong, I wouldn't see a graph at all, regardless of Flash or no Flash, right? Also, I don't see how this explains why FusionCharts.setCurrentRenderer('JavaScript') works but only when I reference an XML static file opposed to a directly typed XML string. Unless I'm missing something, the xml string change you made is the exact same thing I had except it's a little cleaner. How exactly does the FusionCharts._fallbackJSChartWhenNoFlash(); method work? Does an absolute path "break" things? In my Grails project, I dynamically link to a resource folder... which creates the "absolute" link I have specified. I'm wondering if there are some subtleties that I'm failing to understand in the context of Grails. <script type="text/javascript"><!-- FusionCharts._fallbackJSChartWhenNoFlash(); var myChart = new FusionCharts( "${createLinkTo(dir:'MyChart/FusionCharts/Column3D.swf')}", "myChartId", "400", "300", "0", "1" ); myChart.setXMLData("${xmlData}"); myChart.render("chartContainer"); // --> </script> I know this is potentially a lot of complication over a forum post. In case it's of relevance, I'm part of a company that is looking to incorporate FusionCharts into our software... we're using a trial right now and will definitely be buying if we can get our questions answered. I'd love to talk over the phone which I understand is only available if we shell out the $$$... but we're not going to shell out the $$$ unless we know we can get the support we'll need .
  3. I'm having the following issue while trying to embed a sample chart in my Grails project. Here is my sample code. <title>Charts</title> <meta name="layout" content="main" /> <script type="text/javascript" src="/atpview/js/MyChart/FusionCharts/FusionCharts.js"></script> </head> <body> <div id="chartContainer">FusionCharts will load here!</div> <script type="text/javascript"><!-- FusionCharts._fallbackJSChartWhenNoFlash(); var myChart = new FusionCharts("atpview/js/MyChart/FusionCharts/Column3D.swf'", "myChartId", "400", "300", "0", "1" ); myChart.setXMLData("<chart caption='Weekly Sales Summary'xAxisName='Week' yAxisName='Sales' numberPrefix='><set label='Week 1' value='14400' /><set label='Week 2' value='19600' /><set label='Week 3' value='24000' /><set label='Week 4' value='15700' /></chart>") myChart.render("chartContainer"); // --> </div> </body> <html> This works fine and shows up as expected when I navigate to the appropriate page in a flash capable browser. However when I view this on an iOS device, I get an invalid data error. If I replace the setXMLData with setXMLUrl (pulling from a static XML file), everything works fine. The flash chart shows up in a flash-enabled browser and the javascript chart shows up in the iOS browser. If I also add FusionCharts.setCurrentRenderer('JavaScript') while using setXMLData, neither works. If I change it to setXMLUrl, both browsers (including Safari in iOS) display correctly. I'm quite confused... Anyone know what I'm doing wrong?
