[resolved] Google Charts and TablePress data (13 posts)

    Hey,

    Does anyone have any tips on using TablePress data with Google Charts? Been playing around with:

    $table = TablePress::$controller->model_table->load( $table_id );

    Which is a great way to export the data to array. But the multi-dimensional array is obviously quite different to what Google Charts expects. Just wondering if anyone has tackeld this before and has some tips?

    Hi,

    thanks for your question.

    The best way to do this might indeed be to retrieve the multidimensional array with that function.
    You could then maybe try to add this to the page as JSON, as that's a format that the Google Charts library can read, from what I know.
    Other than that, I'm not aware of people having used Google Charts with TablePress tables.

    Regards,
    Tobias

    Thanks for the swift reply. Do you recommend another charting javascript library for use with TablePress?

    Hi,

    I don't really have any experience with that, but I know of one user who had some success with the Table2Chart plugin:

    There seem to be some problems with the current version though.

    I love tablepress. Thank you. I donated as well.

    the problem with Table2Chart is that it is VERY expensive if your site is commercial. Runs on highcharts js which is like $590.00 if you own more than one site. WOW.

    But I too would love a way to get the data into charts somehow.

    Hi,

    thanks for your post.

    I can see your problem, but unfortunately, I don't know a solution :-( I'm not able to develop a custom graphing solution, so I just don't see anything that I can do here, sorry.

    Regards,

    I'm thinking about something similar, and one other option is to use the Chartwell font with data from the table. The entire family costs USD$129, but that's at least cheaper than the aforementioned plugin.
    Cheers!
