Topics specific to the use of the ECL IDE

Thu May 24, 2012 5:57 am Change Time Zone

We want to show the output of our ecl code in the form of Line chart or Pie chart.
What all files or changes are required to achieve this result.
Can we view these charts in ECL IDE and can we save them.

Write now we tried running the sample code in the VL library but the output is coming in tabular format.
we are using Community Edition 3.6.0-1.

Please guide us on this as we need this Visualization Charts for a Client Demo.

Have you ensured that the IDE has been updated to reference the manifest.xml file? If not, please refer to the Visualization Library section of the ML Modules chapter in the Machine Learning documentation: http://cdn.hpccsystems.com/pdf/machinelearning.pdf

If the manifest reference is there, then you should have access to the charts from the IDE. Bear in mind that the charts do not appear directly in the IDE -- rather, the IDE will present links in the ECL Watch tab's Results section that will open the charts in a separate browser. These links will all contain the text "View Chart".

The VL is designed to act as an interface to publicly-available third party charting APIs, which for the most part use SVG or VML. As such, the extent to which a chart can be saved depends on whether those APIs enable that (for example, using the now-deprecated "image" chart types in Google Charts).

I hope this helps.
