i can help u with the code for simple line & pie chat, if u can get a copy of MX to compile the swf... it is quite easy to draw it urself, any style any color ...

if u have to pay for some charting componenst,... maybe u should consider upgrading ur flash 1st :)

wow ... just did a search for u too ...

here u can find code for doing pie chart dynamically, but u will have to round off the % to integer, it is using a slice of "1%", ie: 36degree - and use duplicateMovieclip to do the whole pie ...

http://actionscript-toolbox.com/samplepiechart.php

i suppose line chart is easy too, create a movieclip with just a line - long enough - and use the same method, duplicateMovie, rotation and lenght and arrange the line segment at the right position.

with MX ... what u can do, user MoveTo(x,y), lineTo(x,y), curveTo() ... etc to draw items and fill color too :)
much easier i think

cheers

sorry, was a bit busy at work... still at the office ...
anyway ... it's done.

change the data.xml for the values of the 2 charts http://www.smartclever.net/example/flash/linechart/linechartv2.zip

if u want to change the style, line, width, etc, u need to go to a friend or someone who has MX and change from the fla, compile again for the swf ... once it is done, u can just upload the swf with the xml or as the comment given in the fla, using chart.swf?DataUrl=abc.asp with abc.asp
if u are going to generate the xml from a database.

Yes, i need the title, and x and y bar got the title, because have more 30 points in the chart, if put the number in each point, it will look no good.

Thanks so much :)

hi henryww,

Got some problem again, because the value you are get from XML file, if i want get from an Array

exp:

var FieldName = new Array;
FieldName = Array("1", "2", "3");
var FieldValue = new Array;
FieldValue = Array(10000, 12000, 15000);

if change it in your code will be hard or not?

I will add other points for you, thanks :)

ok so u have 2 arrays?
fieldName and fieldValue ... what about the second set of values?

say fieldName for both set
fieldValue1 & fieldValue2 in arrays for the 2 sets of numbers ... ok?

it will take some time, but i don't think that's too hard, it is easier than xml :)

let me know.
