Stock charts basics
Require pChart 2.0.11
The pStock extension allows you to create stock charts. As one data point is characterized by 4 values, you‘ll have to use your datasets in a different way than when you‘re drawing standard charts. Each data points is defined by the following states :
The Max value as a the 1st boundary.
The Min value as a 2nd boundary.
The Open value.
The Close value.
All this values have to be listed in dedicated datasets. You can also use an extra dataset to put your X axis labels.
Let‘s assume that we got the data represented in the table bellow :
This will lead to the following declaration with the pData object structure :
/* Create the pData object */ $MyData = new pData(); /* Populate the data series */ $MyData->addPoints(array(34,55,15,62,38,42),"Open"); $MyData->addPoints(array(42,25,40,38,49,36),"Close"); $MyData->addPoints(array(27,14,12,25,32,32),"Min"); $MyData->addPoints(array(45,59,47,65,64,48),"Max"); /* Populate the X lables serie */ $MyData->addPoints(array("8h","10h","12h","14h","16h","18h"),"Time"); $MyData->setAbscissa("Time");That can be charted this way :
