9.9 Visualization Charting Weblets

The visualization charting weblets provide you a means to generate commonly used charts. They are useful to compare distribution of values, trends and proportional part-to-whole information.

The visualization charting weblets use the Google Chart Javascript library. The weblets provide you an easy way to use this library from LANSA.

Note: The charts weblets use Google's Javascript library (retrieved from Google's site).

Google Charts Data Policy
Most charts are generated locally with your data. Some require your data to be sent to Google. Each chart weblet identifies if data is processed locally or sent to Google.

Content Security Policy
The chart weblets need to enable the JavaScript eval function (unsafe-eval) and allow fonts, scripts and styles from Google domains.

There are four types of charts you can create using the Google Charting weblets:
