Dynamic charts

by Sas Jacobs


I created this tutorial because I wanted to use Flash MX to update a bar chart component in real time. I wanted to enter data and chart information and click a button to update the chart with the new values.

It's probably a good idea to have a look at the sample file DynamicCharts.swf before you read this tutorial so you can see what I mean.

This tutorial is all about how I created the chart. It covers:

  • Setting up the movie
  • Creating the chart information
  • Creating the dynamic text fields
  • Updating the chart data

The tutorial assumes that you know how to use Flash MX and that you have a basic knowledge of actionscript. If you have any questions about the tutorial, please feel free to email me.
