    Flash chart help

    I client asked me for a chart in flash, I have some ideas, but I want to know if anyone here has made something similar

    I just have some values that the user will put, so I take those values and create dots in the chart, so that part is easy I also can do more details but how can I make a union between dots with a line, I want a line touching every dot to make the chart work

    Any ideas?

    (again a questions that seems has to be outside games, but I like this section, lol )

    Maybe you could draw a picture. Dont think I understand you atm, as drawing line between dots is not really difficult.

    hey scheletro, aren't we just talking :
    Code:
    mc.moveTo(firstPointX, firstPointY)
    mc.lineTo(secondPointX, secondPointY)
    mc.lineTo(thirdPointX, thirdPointY)
    etc...
    (in AS 3 it's mc.graphics.lineTo and moveTo)

    I can imagine that, although Ive made more than 80 games Im bad programmer so I always try to get answer from my limited knowledge, youll see why below

    Thanks for that, yeap, that was the only thing I found searching on the forums, but the thing is Im no leading variables from a DB, the user is going to put values, so I needed something simple

    hey scheletro, aren't we just talking :
    Code:

    mc.moveTo(firstPointX, firstPointY) mc.lineTo(secondPointX, secondPointY) mc.lineTo(thirdPointX, thirdPointY) etc...

    Thanks but Im still using AS2, but Ill remember this

    Well, I saw this comments today that I already have a demo running, what I did is to use an script that found in one of my games

    [CODE]bug_mc.onEnterFrame = function() {
    var dx = _root.chart.punto2._x-this._x;
    var dy = _root.chart.punto2._y-this._y;
    var angle = Math.atan2(dy, dx);
    this._rotation = angle*180/Math.PI;
    };

    (this thing doesnt let me put long posts, so I need to write a new one)

    Yeap, that script is to follow a target, but that was the best solution for my problem at that time, so I made the line to position in the _y of one point and follow the next

    I know a good programmer has a simple solution, if you have one is welcome

    I also planning to upload the source to help somebody with the same problem at least till one good solution is mentioned

    Here is the demo

    I hope to see solutions and comments on that demo

    scheletro, for that, you just need the code I posted! No need for trig on that one! But since it works for you, and it looks good, I guess there's no need to change it

    Good job, it really looks nice and clean!

    Yes you can, graphics class and its methods like moveTo, lineTo and beginFill were added in FlashMX(6).
