Hello WebFOCUS gurus

Did anyone created a D3 chart recently. I have been trying to build a D3 chart but still struggling part does my HTML go, and I also need to add WebFOUCS syntax that will pull data into chart. Where does that part go

I looked at this link in github on creating WebFOCUS extension but this does not specify where do I add place for FOCUS code that will build my data file and where do I put HTML.











d3-based graph extensions for WebFocus 8200 . Contribute to ibi/wf-extensions-chart development by creating an account on GitHub.











I am adding to this a HighChart Script to this post. Can someone suggest how to get this going.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Yogesh

Extensions will be used like any chart in the WebFOCUS Designer or InfoAssist GUI. No HTMLFORM needed.

Heres a tutorial how to build your own extension











Tutorial Project to complement the wiki page - Building an IBI Chart Extension: A Step by Step Guide for Web Developers - ibi/wf-extension-tutorial











Building this using HTMLFORM will not work as those type of extensions usually call data from within a JavaScript.

By the way - HighChart is a commercial chart engine that requires a license.

I case you need a specific chart it might be better to look at a free chart engine.

There are a few people that build custom WebFOCUS extensions in case you need something specific.
