  1. Self updating chart without a web server

    Thanks Pallav. I think I've found a way that will work for us using the regular FusionCharts instead of the widgets. Andy
  2. Updating data on the fly?

    Thanks Pallav. Andy
  3. Updating data on the fly?

    By the way, I was able to get it to smoothly update if I use setDataXML, but I still can't get it to smoothly update using setDataURL. Andy
  4. Updating data on the fly?

    I have not been successful in using the FusionWidgets in my application. I'm not working with a web server, so feeding the data to the chart isn't working right. I have figured out that I can update data on an existing chart by calling a JavaScript function that does a setDataURL call on my chart, but it flashes each time the chart is updated. Is there a way to prevent the flashing? Thanks, Andy
  5. Self updating chart without a web server

    Thanks. Is there any way to do this on the local machine without using IIS or another web server? Possibly a different kind of data source? There will not be a web server available to the machines where our application will be run. Thanks, Andy
  6. Greetings all. I am trying to evaluate FusionWidgets to see if the self updating charts will work for what we would like to do. I want to embed a web browser component in a program and have it display a chart. This is on a local machine, not going through a web server. I've figured out how to do this with a regular chart through FusionCharts, but I would also like to be able to auto update the data every few seconds. To try to figure out how to do this, I've developed a simple set of files which I think should do it, but I just can't get them to work. It's supposed to display a column chart that counts up from 0 to 59 and is updated every second. I'd like to have it display just a single column that grows or shrinks as the data changes, not have it marching across the screen showing history. Would someone be able to take a look at this and tell me what I'm doing wrong? Once unzipped, you should just be able to load the html file in a web browser to see the chart. Remember, I'm not using a web server. I'd appreciate any help. Thanks, Andy autoupdate.zip
  7. Updating data on the fly?

    Greetings all, I'm evaluating various features in FusionCharts and was wondering if anyone can tell me if it's possible to update data on the fly? I'm going to be using the charts by embedding a Flash Player object in my application (written in Magic), it's not on a web page. I can easily display a chart in my program by setting the Flash Movie property to the chart I want and setting the FlashVars property to point to my chart data XML. What I'm wondering is if it's possible to have a program that collects new data every few seconds and updates the chart automatically. Are there properties or methods in the Flash Player that allow it to do this? Would I use CallFunction, and if so, what functions and parameters would I use to do this? Please excuse the newbie question, I've never worked with a Flash object before. Thanks, Andy
