A dynamic SVG Bar chart

This is an example of a dynamic Bar chart where the values auto-update to new ones. The values are, in this case, random but they could just as easily be taken from a database or connected device (eg a monitor of some sort). Also, if you have just a single data-point then you could, using the Bar chart, have an auto-updating progress bar. If you were to employ this technique but with the Horizontal Bar chart then you could have a dynamic Horizontal Progress bar. It wouldn't make as much sense (IMO) , but you could also use other charts too, for example the Line or Waterfall charts.

This goes in the documents header:
<script src="RGraph.svg.common.core.js"></script>
<script src="RGraph.svg.bar.js"></script>
Put this where you want the chart to show up:
<div style="width: 550px; height: 300px" id="chart-container"></div>
This is the code that generates the chart:
    data  = [3,5,4,9,5,6,3,5,2,5,4,2];
    delay = 200;
    bar = new RGraph.SVG.Bar({
        id: 'cc',
        data: data,
        options: {
            labelsAbove: true,
            labelsAboveDecimals: 1,
            labelsAboveUnitsPost: 'kg',
            labelsAboveSize: 10,
            title: 'A dynamic Bar chart',
            titleFont: 'Impact',
            titleSize: 18,
            backgroundGridBorder: false,
            xaxis: false,
            yaxis: false,
            xaxisLabels: ['Jan','Feb','Mar','Apr','May','Jun','Jul','Aug','Sep','Oct','Nov','Dec']
    function update()
        for (var i=0; i<12; ++i) {
            // This condition means that a value is only changed 10% of the time. ish.
            if (Math.random() > .9) {
                var random = Math.random();
                bar.data[i] = bar.data[i] + (random > 0.5 ? .1 : -.1);
                bar.data[i] = Math.max(bar.data[i], 0);
                bar.data[i] = Math.min(bar.data[i], 10);

        setTimeout(update, delay);

    setTimeout(update, delay);
