Three Chart Scripts To Show Data In Flash
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).
