Codeigniter: Creating dynamic graphs using JQuery and FusionCharts
Jul 30, 2010 @ 14:11:58

On the Ask About PHP blog today there's a new tutorial about integrating the OpenFlashCharts tool into a CodeIgniter application to display data.

I recently upgraded some of my Codeigniter applications that used OpenFlashCharts to using FusionCharts Free, and at the same time incorporated some javascript to allow me to change the graphs dynamically at the client-side. This has greatly improved the usability of my charts and graphs that I pump out. As such, I thought I would share how I did this and hopefully someone will find it useful as well.

He walks you through the steps needed to install - putting all of the files in the right places, creating a controller to use the scripts and a view to output the finished chart. A demo of the end result is also included.
