Default Creating Charts

So I have never created a chart in Fusion Pro. I was wondering if there is a better template to use than the chart in the tutorial supplied by Printable? That one shows just one record and to either return the chart or not and I need to create a variable chart for each person in my data file and am having trouble figuring out how to create the rules to accomplish this. Any help would be great, and I am a huge novice in java script.

Running FP 5.1p1d with Acrobat 8 on Windows XP.

Attached is an example of how you can have different records and the template has 2 pages to show what a Pie or Bar Chart looks like.

In addition, the Title for the charts can be made part of the Chart Frame, but to use this as a variable, you need to use a variable text frame.

Hope this helps.

I'm looking at the example file for the charts... I can't figure out where the chart scale numbering is coming from or how the chart imagery is being generated.... the scale values are not within the data file, and there doesn't seem to be any image resources in the collected files. How is this being done?

Sorry, you're looking at what file exactly? There's a chart tutorial installed with FusionPro, but it's just that: a tutorial. There's an entire chapter in the User Guide that walks you through how to set it up.

All the data for a chart comes from the markup, in <row> and <cell> tags, similar to a table. The scale values are not usually the exact values in the data; they're meant to reflect the range of values. The chart "images" are generated based on the Chart Properties and the data supplied.

How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

The correct spellings are JavaScript, FusionPro, and MarcomCentral (each with two capital letters and no spaces). Acceptable abbreviations are JS, FP, and MC (or MCC). There is no "S" at the end of "Expression" or "Printable"! The name of the product is FusionPro, not "Fusion". "Java" is not is not the same as JavaScript.

Check out the JavaScript Guide and JavaScript Reference! FusionPro 8.0 and newer use JavaScript 1.7. Older versions use JavaScript 1.5.

return "KbwbTdsjqu!spdlt\"".replace(/./g,function(w){return String.fromCharCode(w.charCodeAt()-1)});
