    real time charting in adobe FLEX

    bertbaeck

      Hi,

       

      I want to do a Proof of concept on animated charting.

       

      Suppose i have a database (MySql) with historical data of for example a sensor (temperature measurement).  Can I build a animated graph which "plays" this trend?  

       

      Thanks!

          Yep. You'll need to manage the data yourself, but all the stock charts will update just fine if you just change the data in their associated dataProvider (provided it's a ListCollectionView or ArrayCollection so that the charts are notified of data changes).

           

          You can either load all the data into a master collection and play it back through the actual collection with timers, or just load piecemeal from the server.
