Drilldown capability in charts (clickable charts)

Post by htandra » Mon Feb 25, 2013 8:41 pm

Hey all,

I am exploring ChartsEngine and other Charting plugins on runrev.
I need drilldown functionality for my charts, i.e. where I can click on datapoints
to see more detailed information or click on a pie chart area to see more detailed
chart specific to the clicked area etc.

Can I achieve this using ChartsEngine ? If anyone else has done anything similar
please give me your advice and pointers.

Thank you. I appreciate all your help.

ChartsEngine does not offer a click target, or a built in way to issue messages. Of course you can code that yourself, but then, you could as well code ChartsEngine yourself...

So altho possible, what you want would be hard and laborious when added on top of chartsEngine.
Various teststacks and stuff:
