Building Your First Few Charts

In this section, you will learn the following:

  • Start with a simple Column 2D chart, and learn the syntax to build a chart using JSON data.

  • Build a gauge (speedometer chart).

  • Build a data-driven US map.

  • Learn how to change the size of chart both at initialization and dynamically through the API.

  • Use FusionCharts Suite XT theme files to control look and feel of all charts within your application.

  • Create a dashboard with a chart, gauge and a map.

  • Finally, you will learn how to use the XML data format provided by FusionCharts Suite XT. Although widely in use, XML is relatively slower when compared to JSON when it comes to rendering charts using FusionCharts Suite XT.
