Excerpt of article text...

The ChartDirector REALbasic plugin is a powerful chart component for creating professional looking charts. The list of charts is long and includes pie, bar, line, area, trending, box, scatter, bubbles, vectors, surface, pyramid, gantt and polor charts. Also there are meters and gauges. All those charts can be combined in a combo chart.

This article will show and explain small examples of creating charts and give you some code you can use as a starting point for your own projects. The 9.2 release of the MBS plugins comes with over 150 example projects for Chart Director. All those chart pictures of the examples are included, too, so you can just browse the pictures and find the example you need.

Test Driving ChartDirector

If you would like to try the ChartDirector plugin, you can download it at http://www.monkeybreadsoftware.de. Inside the download you find plugins files with file extension rbx. To install, simply copy the plugin files you need (in this case that's "MBS REALbasic ChartDirector Plugin.rbx") into REALbasic's plugins folder (located inside the folder where your copy of REALbasic is installed). Now (re)start REALbasic and if you type dim c as CD and the tab key in the code editor, you should see a long Autocomplete list of new classes beginning with "CD".
