Sample script

 /* pChart library inclusions */

 /* Create and populate the pData object */
 $MyData = new pData();  
 for($i=0;$i<=20;$i++) { $MyData->addPoints(rand(0,20),"Probe 1"); }
 for($i=0;$i<=20;$i++) { $MyData->addPoints(rand(0,20),"Probe 2"); }
 $MyData->setSerieShape("Probe 1",SERIE_SHAPE_FILLEDTRIANGLE);
 $MyData->setSerieShape("Probe 2",SERIE_SHAPE_FILLEDSQUARE);

 /* Create the pChart object */
