Make DataChart easier to use

Reported by: dylan Owned by: Eugene Lazutkin
Priority: high Milestone: 1.9
Component: Charting Version: 1.5
Keywords: Cc: cjolif

The DataChart? was intended as a simple way to drop a chart into a document as a Dijit. The main goals were to be able to simply:

  • Include charts in a layout
  • Set data/themes/axis/other properties
  • Optionally use live data updates (Comet)

Currently, the API is limited, the implementation is limited, the options for interacting with data are very rigid, the code is a bit crufty, and the documentation on how to use it/connect to different types of data stores, etc. is hard to follow.

In my opinion, a hard look needs to be taken at:

  • API
  • Docs
  • Demos and tutorials
  • Integration with the DataGrid? (like the Stocker SitPen? demo)

Bumping this ticket to future. DataChart is mostly superseded by DataSeries, and new StoreSeries.

This sounds like a bit generic ticket? Docs has improved, we do have some demos now. API is improving version after version. I think other things like tutorials are better managed off trac like on plan server? Any objection to close this one?
