Charts charts charts ... yep XMLP/BIP can do em ... in fact it can do about 30 different types but the Insert Chart dialog of the template builder now only exposes about 6 of them, with a few bells and whistles ... if you want to go further then you have to get coding. I've covered some alternatives for the coding in previous posts but Im now posting what I hope is going to be a useful 'cheat sheet' for some of the tougher chart styles. Again, thanks to another Oracle Consulting star, Kan Nishida who put the samples together you can now quickly grasp how to put together the following chart types:
Some easy ones, some not so easy, Kan has provided some useful hints in the template on whats needed for a specific chart type and of course you can always take a look at the web properties for the dummy chart images to get a better idea. RTF template, XML data and PDF output available here.
