Help with SimpleXML charts with PHP

Code I wrote years ago, uncommented (I know, I know!), now needs attention, and despite searches for "simpleXML charts" etc, I can find nothing to help me.

Here is an example page with 2 charts...

The problem:  the right click options do not work, especially with the full screen option on the second chart, and also clicking on the legend colours in the second chart should toggle their appearance.

I appreciate that in the several intervening years since this code was written, there may be better charting options for PHP.  I am willing to consider recommendations.

I attach two files, with code for the respective charts.

Thanks for reading.

This is a more up-to-date charting tool, and worth evaluating to see if it can meet your needs

You might be able to replace the PHP scripts with something that interfaces with the Google Charts.  It looks like their system is mostly driven by JSON, in place of XML.  A little bit of JavaScript and CSS might be enough to facilitate the full screen displays, but in any case, this is a good-sized refactoring task -- don't minimize the time estimates!

Cheers Ray.  As you say, not a trivial task, I'll put it on the Do list.  

The issues described above are minor, and I can live with them until I get around to the Google charting.

I'll leave the question open for a short while in case anyone spots an easy fix with the SimpleXML.

currently, someone say : do a right click and we zoom/unzoom
you say : do a right click and we get options
