If you’ve been scouring the web looking for a pure Ajax charting solution, you might want to check out this offering from WebFX, a simple, free, easy to use charting system with multiple chart types included.
In web applications developed now days a lot of the logic that previously resided on the server side is now being implemented on the client side. This is especially true for information presentation, components such as trees and columnlist makes it possible for users to interact with the application, or web site if you wish, without contacting the server. However the ability to present data in a graphic rather than textual format has been quite limited, unless a plugin is used or an image is requested from the server.
That’s where this component comes in to place, it allows various forms of charts to be created, without any additional plugin, and without using images.
You can see an example of the charting in action in this demo showing line, bar, and combo graphs from generated data. There’s even documentation, usage examples and an API interface provided as well.
