Bar Data

Whichever method ( file, html code, server process Esc) you choose to supply the graph with the data, the format is the same in that of [Data Name] , [Data Value].
Please Note : Data Names are case sensitive. ( i.e. data1series1 is not the same as Data1Series1 ).

Data Naming Convention
The data name is used to specify the series which that piece of data belongs and the order in which it should be placed within that series. The format of the name is,


where N is an integer number representing the order of the data within the series and M is an integer which specifies the series.

For example if we have 3 series of data each with 4 pieces of data then the data names would be,




Please Note: Both the data and series numbering must begin with 1.

Data Value
If the data is being supplied to the applet, then the value can contain up to three elements, separated by a comma , character, which represent,

Numeric Value
Target Frame

If the data is being supplied to the servlet then only the Numeric Value is relevant. In the following examples we have 2 series of data each with 4 pieces of data.
