FileMaker plugin iconThe 360Works Charts plugin is a FileMaker plugin for generating various types of graphical charts with a very easy-to-use API. Currently supported are: pie charts, bar charts, line charts, and time series charts.

Check out the upcoming Ace of Charts workshop featuring the 360Works Charts plugin, hosted by SavvyData in Redwood City, CA. Learn about adding attractive, useful charts and graphs and how to make embedded charts and graphs update on-demand or automatically.

Here is an example for creating a pie chart containing five values. The let() function is used to do the setup for the chart, and then the pieChartShowGraphic is called at the end to set the actual value of the container to the chart image.

What about Web Publishing and FileMaker Server?

If you purchase the Enterprise License (see below), then you will be able to use the plugin with the FileMaker Web Publishing Engine. This means that when you use our plugins in your FileMaker scripts, they will work the same way with Instant Web Publishing (IWP) or WebDirect. It also means that your Custom Web Publishing applications (with XSLT, PHP, or any other web technology) can call FileMaker scripts that use our plugins.

Can I use this plugin with my FileMaker runtime solution?

Yes, all of our plugins work in FileMaker runtimes solutions, just copy the plugin to the runtime's Extensions folder.

What kind of licenses are there?

Most of our plugins are available in 3 licenses: a demo version which works for 2 hours every time you launch FileMaker, a Workgroup license for 10 or fewer users, and an Enterprise license for unlimited users within a single organization.

What about FileMaker Go?

If you'd like to add plug-in functionality to a mobile solution, there are a number of options available. Plug-ins cannot be installed directly on a iPhone or iPad, but you can trigger a script on a machine that does have the plug-in installed. Using FileMaker Server, you can have routine scripts that will process all the outstanding function calls. For an example on how to do this, see this article on accomplishing this with Plastic. Alternatively you could integrate RemoteScripter to trigger server side scripts. Finally, FMRPC is a separate product developed as a collaboration between Skeleton Key and 360Works.
