HTML5 Charts in Commercial Editions

All editions of Jaspersoft Studio include basic charting functionality in the form of JFree Charts. Commercial editions provide more advanced HTML5 charts implemented through Highcharts. Written in pure HTML5 and JavaScript, Highcharts offer sophisticated, interactive charts that animate automatically. Jaspersoft Studio currently supports many of the charts available in the Highcharts library.

This section describes functionality that can be restricted by the software license for Jaspersoft Studio. If you do not see some of the options described in this section, your license may prohibit you from using them. To find out what you are licensed to use, or to upgrade your license, contact Jaspersoft.

The HTML5 Chart Edit dialog has two configuration views: simple and advanced.

A simple view lets you quickly configure your categories, measures, and series contributor.
Advanced view gives you more control and access to advanced features.

You can also preview a chart from the chart dialog by clicking in the HTML5 Chart Edit dialog.
