     This uses flash to generate bar graphs dynamically without having to install any server side programs. This just requires you to embed this tiny flash movie in your web page and it takes data from a text file or an asp page and shows an animated bar graph. You can refresh the graph without having to reload the entire page. ---------------------------------------------- I am including the flash source file (.fla) so that you can tinker with it and add all the features that I haven't. Right now this only draws the graph - I haven't added the x and y axes titles. Also, the movie plays in the 'high quality' mode which can make the animation slow. You could modify it to play in low or medium quality by default, or just use the quality selector. -------------------------------------------- The bar graphs currently use an animated bar with an 'aqua' look. Remove the animation if you don't like it, or just replace the symbol with a bar of your own. --------------------------------------------- I have included two sets of files - one that takes data from a text file and one that takes data from an asp page. Check "readme.txt" in the zip file for details. ----------------------------------------------- This is just a framework, so I'm sure it can be improved a lot. For one, it could use an XML data input instead of the URL encoded input it uses right now. ----------------------------------------------- If I get the time, I shall add the capability to draw curves and pie charts and also change the input to XML. Contact me if you need any explanation of the fla file. Happy tinkering! NOTE: THIS REQUIRES FLASH 5. YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO READ THE FILE OTHERWISE. FLASHPLAYER 5 OR ABOVE REQUIRED TOO.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
