You need to know how many people are even aware of the feature IMO.Comment 2 by Raymond Camden posted on 10/28/2011 at 2:46 AMValid point I guess - I assume they would answer no. I'll ping the creator.Doesn't everyone read the complete CF docs from front to end??!?Comment 3 by Todd Rafferty posted on 10/28/2011 at 2:50 AMOnly in Raytopia.Comment 4 by Ed posted on 10/28/2011 at 4:03 AMWouldn't you know it, this survey came about 2 weeks to early for me. I answered it as our system stands today which is no use of the cfchart tag. But I have just been asked to work on mocking up a new dashboard page that would have charts on it and thus would most likely be using the cfchart tag. I look forward to digging into the cfchart tag over the next couple of weeks.Comment 5 by Gary F posted on 10/28/2011 at 6:19 AMI've always used cfchart but recently we were in a rush and used SQL Server Reporting Services to bang out some charts really quickly using CF to alter the URL params to change the datasets and act as a proxy. The GUI to design charts is excellent (it gets way better with "Crescent" in SQL 2012) so I really hope CF10 can step it up a gear.Comment 6 by Tom Chiverton posted on 10/28/2011 at 3:06 PMNot sure "Do you modify/create chart style XML files or use WebCharts3D to create chart styles?" is a Yes/No answer rather than xml/webchartsDo you mean "what do you use to customise ?" or "do you customise" ?I went with 'yes' as I do, and I use WebCharts and then hand edit the XML to make it a sane size.Comment 7 by Ben B posted on 10/28/2011 at 8:21 PMOf course, perhaps the intent of the survey is not to gather information but to disseminate it. ... in the tradition of push polls with questions like "On a scale from 1-5, how aware were you of candidate Smith's insidious attempts to undermine democracy?" Now we're all suddenly talking about jazzing up our charts. I tell you, it's a conspiracy.Comment 8 by Raymond Camden posted on 10/28/2011 at 8:22 PMI did a quick demo of new charting at MAX. Unfortunately my video was cut off towards the end.
