PHP/SWF Charts

Friday 15 October 2004

PHP/SWF Charts is a slick PHP package for dynamically generating charts as Flash files. The results are good looking and full-featured. I especially liked the idea that everything is defaultable. As the tutorial shows, this code:

<?php

//include charts.php in your script
include "charts.php";

//draw a chart using the default values
DrawChart ();

?>

will draw a bar chart with bogus defaulted data. Of course, the resulting chart is useless, but it makes it extremely easy to get off the ground with the package.
