FlashChart and Click Events

With a pointing device such as a mouse, clicking a graphical element triggers a "mouse click" event (or click event). FlashChart now with version 1.2.0 is able to handle click events and may trigger actions. Possible are two types of actions:

  1. navigate via "http" or "https" URLs to internal or external websites
  2. execute javascripts

You define these actions on click events with parameters:

  • onclick - relates to chart elements
  • key_onclick - relates to legend (key) items
  • alert_onclick - relates to chart elements where an "alert" has been triggered

Additionly you now may via new parameter "menu" (which will create a chart menu element) request execution of javascripts.

flashChart and modal Windows

Modal windows are intended to grab the user's full attention, once they are called from their parent window. Many interface designers have recently taken steps to make modal windows more obvious and user friendly by darkening the background behind the window or allowing any mouse click outside of the modal window to force the window to close.

Since version 1.1.8 of flashChart you now may show charts, images and other web-contents (html or text) within "modal windows".
