    Default Are FusionCharts and Highcharts merging together?

    Are FusionCharts and Highcharts merging together?


    hi community,

    i got a newsletter from FusionCharts today:

    The latest release of FusionCharts comes bundled with HighCharts - a powerful JavaScript charting library. Now you get the best of both the Flash and JavaScript (HTML5) worlds, without having to write any additional code.
    sounds interesting. though they should completely remove the flash part


    kind regards

    The Flash part needs to stay for a while yet for backwards support of older browsers etc.

    Ext 4 charts will work on IE6. The drawing uses an abstraction which uses either VML or SVG or canvas.

    This is a Raphael Panel (Raphael used the same technique, and in fact the author is working on the Ext 4 drawing package) running on IE6:

    hi nige,

    i am really interested in the new raphael / ext4 charting engine as well
    the ie6 screenshot looks funny, though it makes me sad that this dinosaur won't die.

    the only problem for both projects will probably be to generate charts on the serverside, that are looking the same way (for example chart-images for newsletters). automatically generating screenshots is not a clean way imho.


    kind regards

    I'll be presenting on the Charting & Data Visualization in Ext JS 4. We've put together quite a team to promote vector graphics as a first class citizen. I hope to see you there!

    You can serialise your Raphael charts to JSON, send to server, convert to SVG then use Batik to convert to PNG. I have done this with great success. Unfortunately I had to write my own chart software with Raphael as gRaphael was very incomplete/buggy.
