    MSChart?

    How do i use vbscript to instantiate the bloomin' Chart? I've tried the CreateObject with a variety of things, none of which work. I've tried including the object clsid. <img src=/S/brickwall.gif border=0 alt=brickwall width=25 height=15>

    Recommend any substitutes for MSChart?

    Hi Peter,

    I've never heard of using the MSChart component in an ASP situation. I think I found why: MSKB Q240339.

    I know that Cold Fusion has a charting component that is supposed to be fabulous, although I haven't used it either.

    Just my 2cents <img src=/S/2cents.gif border=0 alt=2cents width=15 height=15>

    Don't give up so easily on your dream!

    Just because Microsoft says it's not a good idea doesn't mean that it's impossible! Check this article from one of my favorite ASP sites, http://www.4guysfromrolla.com. (Besides, maybe Microsoft is lying about that also! I find it hard to trust anything they say... <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>)

    If this doesn't work for you, and assuming Cold Fusion isn't available for you, I'm sure there are plenty of other charting component packages out there. I doubt they'll be free, but I"m sure you can find one that will work for you.

    Good luck!

    The 4guys article is client side, whereas i am tryna do server side.

    I gave up on MSChart when i found the words "not supported as of" in the KB article. But I still have the dream!!!! <img src=/S/snore.gif border=0 alt=snore width=32 height=15> I'll find something that works ~ one of the web mags had a few listed.
