OpenFlashChart Version 2.0.0 11/14/2008

1) rails ofc2_test_app 2) cd ofc2_test_app 3) script/plugin install git://github.com/pullmonkey/open_flash_chart.git 3.1) If the install didn't copy the contents of the assets directory to your RAILS_ROOT/public directory, make sure to do so. 4) script/generate controller test_it

5) Add the following to the test_it_controller.rb in RAILS_ROOT/app/controllers: class TestItController < ApplicationController

def index
  respond_to do |wants|
    wants.html {
      @graph = open_flash_chart_object( 600, 300, url_for( :action => 'index', :format => :json ) )
    }
    wants.json { 
      chart = OpenFlashChart.new( "MY TITLE" ) do |c|
        c << BarGlass.new( :values => (1..10).sort_by{rand} )
      end
      render :text => chart, :layout => false
    }
  end
end

end

6) Add the following to index.html.erb in RAILS_ROOT/app/views/test_it/: <html> <head>

<script type="text/javascript" src="/javascripts/swfobject.js"></script>

</head> <body> <%= @graph %> </body> </html>

7) script/server 8) Let me know how it goes, thanks.

Notes

The plugin breaks if the json gem is included, because of the way that the gem generates json vs the rails native json generator.

Not tested, but klochner claims to have implemented a fix for it here - github.com/klochner/open_flash_chart/commit/00cf531387880af8c49ed5118737f0492b437f75
