Excerpt of article text...

In this article I would like to introduce you to working with ChartDirector in Xojo.

In Xojo there is no built-in function to create diagrams. You can change this with the MBS ChartDirector plugin and create charts in Xojo in many different types. There are standard chart types like bar and pie charts, but also complex charts like scatter charts or financial charts. In Figures 1-6 you can see some diagrams created with ChartDirector in Xojo.

There are almost no limits to the design possibilities of your diagrams. For example you can use your own color scheme to display the data, axis and labels, place your company logo in the background of the chart, select a suitable font, and rotate and flip the chart as you like.

Because of the huge function range of ChartDirector, I would like to give you some examples to show you how the ChartDirector plugin can be used and its design possibilities.

Example: Pie chart

In our first example we create a pie chart. A pie chart has one-dimensional data. That means that we need to fill one array with that data.
