The Chart object represents a single chart.

Using the Chart object

You can use either the CreateObject method or the New keyword to create a new Chart object.

The object ID for a chart on an ASP page returns a Chart object.

The programmatic identifier ProgID for the Chart object is "SwiffChartObject.ChartObj".

When a Chart object is first created, it is empty (it does not contain any series, categories, etc.). Use the methods described in the table below for filling a chart object with data, setting the graphical layout of a chart object and generating a Flash movie from a chart object.

VBScript Code Sample

The first of the following examples creates an object named MyChart by using the ProgID parameter.

<OBJECT RUNAT=Server ID=MyChart PROGID="SwiffChartObject.ChartObj">

The second example, however, uses the Server.CreateObject method.

Dim chart
Set chart= Server.CreateObject("SwiffChartObject.ChartObj")
