I have created a Website with a line and a bar graph within.
Dynamically update is done by filling new values in the used data Array.

I tried to build it up like in the example below.
But I have the Problem, that RAM usage of the browser increases as Long as the Website is running.
And the same Problem exists, if I just open your example in the Web browser (IE or Firefox).

Then I tried not to create the 2 objects every time new but with the following code:
In this case only the bar graph is updated and not the line graph.

bar.original_data = parent.Graph_data1;
line.original_data = parent.Graph_data2;

Hi there,

Well, that particular chart creates a new object on every iteration. Not something that's terribly efficient.

This demo on the other hand:

Updates the data that's held inside the Line chart without creating a new Line chart object. There's a bit more code to it - but i'm sure that it could be reduced if it were given some attention.

I think the main difference is to create a single RGraph Line chart object and then, on every iteration, update the data held by it instead of creating a whole new object each time.

Thanks for your help,

now it works.

What is the corresponding command for

obj.original_data[0] = data;

in a HBar, as there is no "original_data" field?

I actually use[0] = data;

Hi there,

Yes that's the correct property to use IIRC. It's slightly different for the Line chart because for stacked Line charts the data is modified - hence the need to maintain the original data.

So yes - use for the Horizontal Bar chart.
