Meter Chart Application

Sample of an interactive Chart Application

This chart shows a measurement for downloads. I have added two buttons to trigger the measurement by calling a small javascript which issues a download request, calculates the timings and posts the result. The event script (see parameter event_script), which adds an events listener, catches the post and updates the meter chart.

Installation of this Sample

Insert Script-tag for javascript measurement program into your Joomla Article:
<script src="/media/plg_content_rgraph/js/demo.js" type='text/javascript' ></script>
Having done this, code rgraph plugin-tags:
{rgraph type="Meter" max="100" value="0" labelsValueTextUnitsPost=" Mbps" title="Your Download Speed" width="600"
height="300" chart_name="chart" event_script="media/plg_content_rgraph/js/meter_event.js" titleSize="11"
needleColor="rgba(77,77,77,0.9)" labelsValueDecimals="2" labelsValueUnitsPost=" Mbs" labelsValueText="true"
labelsValueTextSize="11" marginBottom="30"}chart{/rgraph}

And finally insert html-tags to define buttons for controlling application:
<button type="button" onclick="measure_speed('php-apps/RGraph/images');" >Start Measurement</button>
<button type="button" onclick="postMessage(0, '*');">Reset</button>
The measurement program uses 5MB sized Image "31120037-5mb.jpg" (you may have a look at it and download it). Directory for image needs to be added as parameter for the called measurement program in onclick-parameter of first button.
Important: If you want to test this sample via copy/paste, ensure that you paste with option "paste as plain text" otherwise imbedded html-codes may invalidate your input.
