[Add-On] Flash charts for Pages

One thing which would be great for the Pages feature would be the ability to embed dynamic flash charts. Of course the XF software would also have to support the feature in the first place.

amCharts do free software which is able to produce lots of different types of charts.
Such as Column & Bar, Line & Area, Scatter & Bubble, etc.

The charts can be produced from CSV, XML or PHP files.

I would love to see someone write an add-on for this, I've got soooo many uses for it.

450 Euros, not that bad.
I did say it was free in my opening post.

You can download and use all amCharts products for free. The only limitation of the free version is that a small link to this web site will be displayed in the top left corner of your charts.
The add-on would simply allow site owners to easily embed the charts, after downloading and installing the software on their own server.

This would be terrific

Additionally, the free license says this:
I can't really see what value you're adding to this thread.
The free license options are adequate for most users and allows them to embed the charts in their personal sites.

Q: Can I use amCharts for free?
A: Yes, the only limitation of the free version is that a small link to this web site will be displayed in the top left corner of your charts.

Whilst I like the idea, I am concerned about the free license. If this were to be implemented, the user would have to download and install the software themselves. XenForo simply cannot include the amCharts library, without the company purchasing an OEM license. As such, I would recommend this be an addon, instead of core functionality.

Actually, I did. I was only reinforcing that it did become addon, not core, and I initially thought in my first reply, but not in the following replies.

May I suggest Open Flash Charts v2 (Flash) or Flot (jQuery)? They are both just as great as amCharts and are completely open-source, so they could be redistributed with the addon. :)

If by dynamic you mean that they can take data on the fly, then yes. Both are interactive as well. :)
I meant both dynamic and interactive, so thanks :D

I have to say I do like amCharts though as I had a little play on my local install and they work great.
