Cfgraph, Coldfusion and MySQL getting started

Hi,

I need to display the hits, and visits of our site in a bar chart using Coldfusion. An example of the SQL data is like so....

daily_id, date, hits, visits
1, 11/13/2007, 20000, 400000
2. 11/12/2007, 20000, 400000

but I would like to have a drop down menu for months and show a bar chart of the daily hits throughout the month. This is what I've got started...

<cfquery name="get_general_stats" datasource="#dsn#">
        SELECT *, COUNT(visits) as "visits"
        FROM stats_daily
        ????
         WHERE month of the date =  '#form.date#'
</cfquery>


<CFCHART
             backgroundcolor="F2ECEC"
               CHARTWIDTH="950"
               CHARTHEIGHT="180"
         ROTATED="no"
               showlegend="yes"
              showmarkers="yes"
             SHOW3D="yes"
         XOFFSET=".01"
         YOFFSET=".02"
               FONTSIZE="10"
         FONTBOLD="Yes"
               DATABACKGROUNDCOLOR="DDDDDD"
             SCALETO="100"
         GRIDLINES="5"
         SHOWXGRIDLINES="no"
         SHOWYGRIDLINES="yes">
            
            <CFCHARTSERIES
           TYPE="bar"
         QUERY="query_name"
           ITEMCOLUMN="date"
           VALUECOLUMN="visits"
           SERIESLABEL="Visits"
           SERIESCOLOR="F94A4A">
             
            </cfchart>

Thanks,

B

Have you tried this? Count(field) counts the number of records that match a query, which is probably not what you wanted.

<cfquery name="get_general_stats" datasource="#dsn#">
        SELECT *
        FROM stats_daily
        ????
         WHERE month of the date =  '#form.date#'
</cfquery>

That should populate the required fields and get you going.

Nice! Thank you, I got it! However how would I loop over all the daily values in bar chart? So if I selected the month of October 2007 I would get all 31 days for the month with a bar value representing each day.

I get the value and the bar chart with the correct value with adding the two variables below. I just need some hints to figure out out to display all the days for each month/year selected.



<cfset month = "11">

	<cfset day = "08">
 

	<cfquery name="get_visits" datasource="#dsn#">

	  SELECT *

	  FROM stats_daily

	  WHERE EXTRACT(MONTH FROM date) = '#month#' AND

	  EXTRACT(DAY FROM date) = '#day#' 

	</cfquery>
 

    <CFCHART

		 backgroundcolor="F2ECEC"

  		 CHARTWIDTH="950"

  		 CHARTHEIGHT="180"

         ROTATED="no"

  		 showlegend="yes"

 		 showmarkers="yes"

		 SHOW3D="yes"

         XOFFSET=".01"

         YOFFSET=".02"

  		 FONTSIZE="10"

         FONTBOLD="Yes"

  		 DATABACKGROUNDCOLOR="DDDDDD"

		 SCALETO="100"

         GRIDLINES="5"

         SHOWXGRIDLINES="no"

         SHOWYGRIDLINES="yes"> 

		

		<CFCHARTSERIES 

    	 TYPE="bar" 

         QUERY="get_visits"

    	 ITEMCOLUMN="Visits"

    	 VALUECOLUMN="visits"

    	 SERIESLABEL="Visits"

    	 SERIESCOLOR="F94A4A">

		 

		</cfchart>

Open in new window

Isn't that what the first code you posted does? Or are you looking to have multiple months selectable and displayed?
