Release 5.1.0 of the APPX Utility includes a new designer API which can be used to create charts within an APPX application. This API provides APPX Designers with a robust set of subroutines which can be called to design charts, define datasets, and render charts using datasets. These charts can then be dynamically embedded in APPX menus, input screens, and PDF reports.

Using the API

There are some key concepts you should understand before using the Chart Design subroutines.

Designing a Chart

Chart design is accomplished by calling the appropriate Chart Design subroutines in the appropriate sequence to create a chart specification.

Defining a Dataset

Datasets are defined by calling the appropriate Dataset Design subroutines in the appropriate sequence to create a dataset definition.

Rendering a Chart

A chart is rendered by calling the Chart Render subroutine for a chart specification and its associated dataset definition(s).

Troubleshooting Tips

If you are having difficulty getting a chart to render, take a look at these tips.
