Static charts just don't impress users like they used to (if they ever did). Savvy Web users want interactivity and they want it on the fly. Here are three exceptional chart scripts to help you display dynamic data in Flash.
Open Flash Chart - An exceptional Flash charting component that is
very easy to setup. Open Flash Cart requests data from the server and a chart
can be generated/populated for a particular user/session with relevant data. OFC has classes written in PHP,
Perl, Python, Java, Ruby on Rails, and .Net to connect to the Chart. The
rendered charts (as shown below) can be modified to match any design.
AmCharts - AmCharts are animated interactive flash charts. The
charts include Pie Charts, Line Charts, Scatter/Bubble Charts, Bar/Column
Charts, and even a stock chart. AmCharts can extract data from simple CSV
or XML files, or they can read dynamic data generated with PHP, .NET,
Java, Ruby on Rails, Perl and ColdFusion. All the charts are free but they have
a link to AmCharts on the upper left.
PHP/SWF Charts - PHP/SWF Charts enables designers and developers to
create web charts and graphs from dynamic data. PHP is used to gather
data and serve it into flash. PHP/SWF Charts supports the basics like Line, Column,
Stacked column, Floating column, 3D column, Stacked 3D column, Parallel 3D
column, Pie, 3D Pie, Bar, Stacked bar, Floating bar, Area, Stacked area,
Candlestick, Scatter, Polar, Mixed, Composite and Joined charts (and even
features animated transitions and Printable charts).
