17. Graphing and Charting > 17.4. Charting Multiple Data Series

Charting Multiple Data Series

In ColdFusion 5, one of the biggest complaints about the cfgraph tag was its inability to graph more than a single series of data. For many developers looking to use ColdFusion for creating graphical representations of their data, this limitation was a disappointment. The engineers at Macromedia took this to heart when integrating ColdFusion MX’s new charting engine used by cfchart.

As I mentioned earlier in the chapter, the cfchart tag is capable of graphing up to 16 different series of data in a single chart. When graphing more than one series of data, you can mix and match chart types, with one exception. If you choose to create a pie chart, it can contain only one series of data, and it’s not possible to have both a pie chart and another chart type overlaid.
