How to use CSS 3D transformations

Summary: A guide for using CSS 3D transformations. Forthcoming CSS 3D transformations can be applied to your canvas

(For best effect use Chrome or Safari)

WebKit (which is used by Google Chrome and Apple Safari) and Firefox support CSS 3D transformations. If you're tasked with only supporting these browsers then by using 3D transformations you can add 3D effects to your charts like the one shown. The effect is specified by adding a CSS property which is shown below. Because the effect changes the position of the canvas coordinates in relation to the page you must also tell RGraph to position the tooltips at the pageX/pageY coordinates which you do with the tooltipsCoordsPage option - as shown below.



<canvas id="cvs"
           width="600"
           height="250"
           style="float: right;
            -webkit-transform: rotate3d(0, 1, 0, 45deg) rotate3d(0, 0, 1, 5deg) rotate3d(1, 0, 0, -15deg);
            -moz-transform: rotate3d(0, 1, 0, 45deg) rotate3d(0, 0, 1, 5deg) rotate3d(1, 0, 0, -15deg);
            -o-transform: rotate3d(0, 1, 0, 45deg) rotate3d(0, 0, 1, 5deg) rotate3d(1, 0, 0, -15deg);
            -ms-transform: rotate3d(0, 1, 0, 45deg) rotate3d(0, 0, 1, 5deg) rotate3d(1, 0, 0, -15deg);
            transform: rotate3d(0, 1, 0, 45deg) rotate3d(0, 0, 1, 5deg) rotate3d(1, 0, 0, -15deg);
            box-shadow: 3px 3px 15px gray">[No canvas support]</canvas>
<script>
    window.onload = (function ()
    {
        var line = new RGraph.Line({
            id: 'cvs',
            data: [4,6,8,4,1,3,2,5,4,6,8],
            options: {
                xaxisLabels: ['John', 'Geoff', 'Lou','Kevin','Barry','John','Alex','Nick','Dave','Hoolio','Pete'],
                marginInner: 10,
                tickmarksStyle: 'arrow',
                textAccessible: false
            }
        }).expand()
    })
