You can use flashChart to generate several types of chart, i.e. line, bar, and pie charts in 2D or 3D. For each image type you can specify attributes such as size, colors, and labels, and so on. You can feed the data for your chart via manual entry, from database, local file system or from remote (or local) webserver. With this plugin, you can very easily create content articles with dynamic interctive charts.

Only have missed for some types of charts as "scatter". Hope someday can increase the types of charts as for a plugin is perfect!.
many thanks for your review! You may now with version 1.2.1 create scatter charts. You may also use my implementation of regression calculations for scatter charts.
Its suggest for you : I wish can to display mysql data tables in frontend joomla at any content (eg. article); table can contain images, URLs, e-mail address, text, integer, date and time.
Can load data from Joomla! database or from external database. Many different database types is supported. Can load data from CSV files. Highly customizable and Works in all modern browsers and off course creates charts based on data from table. You can make a little donation for that.
If your data is static. The flashCharts plugin is simple to install, configure and well documented. Copy an example, add your data and you will have a beautiful chart or graph in less time than it took me to write this review.
I spent four hours writing a little php application for a graph and ported it into joomla with jumi. I installed and configured the php option of this plugin in 4 minutes. Wish I would have seen it first! Every J developer should check this Plugin's documentation -- clear examples, known conflicts, work-arounds, all in one page! Bravo!
It's easy to combine multiple charts in one article, it's beautiful and one of the best features is the ability to have conditional formatting!
The only thing I would change/ adapt is the ability to ALWAYS display the labels values, and not only as tool tip.
Thank you for this plugin and for your effort!
This is a very good extensions, very easy to use (if you have some basic knowledge of SQL).
I discovered it some weeks ago and I use it now for all my website and did about 50 charts with it.
And on top of it the support from the developper is excellent : I had an issue posted on the forum and had an answer within minutes.
This is my first posted review and I did it because I really think the developper deserved it.
Thank you again for this great plugin.
I only have problems with type=pie and c-color parameter.
When i set type=pie my chart can't load. I've tried deleting every parameter that could cause errors and tried leaving only data="10,20,30" but still doesn't work. Every other type works with same parameters.
I also have one question: is it possible to set the different slices' colors in a pie? Or set different colors for bars from a same data series?
many thanks for your feedback! Different slices' colors in a pie are already supported - just provide parameter "c_colors" with your desired colors. Different colors for bars from a single data series will be available with next release (1.1.5). Your problem with pie-chart may be caused not to have specified "tooltip" (this will be corrected with 1.1.5 as well)
I've done all development and most of the testing for flashchart on windows (localhost) - used XAMPP V1.7 (apache, mysql, php) - maybe your used server software is outdated.
We tested the plugin documentation extensively and it is excellent. There are no typos in example tags, everything works directly out of the box and clear examples are provided that can be copied and pasted for instant gratification.
We are also impressed how fast the graphs load and that you can link them directly to Joomla databases. This is a great feature that enables you to do more with your databases.
We give this plugin and its developer 5 stars for building upon the powerful FlashCharts framework, acknowledging the exceptional work of the FlashChart developers, the first-rate documentation of the plugin and the ease of using the plugin.
