If you get the data in supported formats, yes you can do that.


Thanks

Okay, thanks for the information. Only I get so no database connection to Google Anlaytics. Then I have to generate that somehow different.

Can I create an API interface that gets the data from another external tool?
There would even be a data connection available.

The option is there in the formatting section, But It's available only if the data is being fetched from the Database.

Hi, i would like to use the Live Chart feature as well, but I can't find it in the formating section (see attachement) I use vChart 2.9.21
Thanks in advance

Ok, I'll keep on building the website and, as the project nears its completion (I have just started working on it), I'll get back to you to see how can we disable cache for vChart.

Thanks for your help.

Yes, the cache prevents update data to show up on the website.


Thanks

Thanks Daniel! I didn't notice the "Show Live Chart" option, but it seems I won't need it.

I've been testing the remote Database option and it seems to update the data each time I reload the website, which is the option I need for my client.

I have a doubt, though: will the server cache or Joomla's cache prevent data from showing updated charts on the website?

Hi,
You can either use Dynamic CSV or Database option to display the live data. And to make it auto refresh the data, there is an option in Formatting section for "Show Live Chart". It can be used for the purpose.

Hi' I'm creating a series of combo and pie charts, with data that is updated monthly.

How can I build the charts so they update automatically each month?
Can I do this via CSV files on a ftp server?

I've checked your Live chart (auto refresh) demo but it doesn't explain how to create it.

Thx!
