Hi all,
Considering the power of the 4.0 Draw package, I am wondering if Ext is actually considering building advanced visualization tools (e.g. force-directed charts, arc diagrams, TreeMap) available in other JS lib (e.g. protoviz (http://vis.stanford.edu/protovis/ex/) or infovis (http://thejit.org/demos/)).
It seems most of the building blocks are already in place and it would leverage the work accomplished for Ext.Draw.
Cheers,
C.

You do know that infovis is a SenchaLabs offering?

Thanks, was not aware.
Does the fact that it is part of SenchaLabs indicate that some functionalities/widget might merge ? I don't get that from the SenchaLabs page.
The thing is that Ext.Draw package could be used for much more than "just" acting as the building blocks for the Chart package. Importing yet another lib for extra visulalization stuff if fine, but would be nicer to build it on top of ExtJs, IMHO.
Cheers,
C.
