setDataURL inconsistency

Recommended Posts





When using the FusionCharts.js i discovered the "you must encode URL's if using URL's that look like .asp?moo=foo" when using the setDataURL function from FusionCharts.js.




However, i discovered this is NOT an issue after the chart object has been initialized.




for example i initialize my chart:


	   var chart = new FusionCharts("SelectScatter.swf", "selectChart", "570", "700", "0", "1");






If i replace the chart.setDataXML with chart.setDataURL("generateChart.aspx?moo=foo&ice=cold"), it gives me headaches (this happens with fusioncharts and powercharts). BUT later, i have a form updating the setDataURL:




function changeChart(chartID,urlValue){

var chartObj = getChartFromId(chartID);






This works just fine, with the urlValue being something like "generateChart.aspx?moo=foo&ice=cold" without having to encoding the URL (replace unsafe characters with hex). I wonder if the encode URL restriction on setDataURL is a FusionCharts.js problem? should i be encoding the URL just incase though?




also, where do i find documentation for those last two parameters for initializing a chart?
