Learned that I don't want flash but rather should find something that works with Google Chart API. -- HEXSYS DOES THAT.
Then had the hurdle of finding one that works with moduleanywhere. -- HEXSYS DOES
Then I didn't want a chart that would only work with the database. HEXSYS HAS A MODULE BACKEND THAT ALLOWS FOR EASY INSERTION OF MANUAL DATA.
And Finally for wealth of options and customization.
HEXSYS IS EQUIPPED.
I only had one little issue this extension would or could be better in my humble opinion if it had a customization module with a lot of example of how to achieve customization that people would look for.
that was an issue I had..
But HEXSYS solved that quickly with prompt and expert support even in my timezone that guided me through my customization work.
SO all in all HEXSYS was and is the best chart extension that I have found.
Also the Pro version costs 6 bucks.
Affordable, robust, well supported extension.
