How to create charts?

Creating charts in the editors

The window editor, page editor and report editor include a Chart control. When creating this control, the wizards ask you questions to define the type of chart to create. The description window of the control allows you to modify these options at any time.
The WLanguage functions can also be used to modify the charts displayed in the Chart controls. To do so, specify the name of the Chart control in the different functions.
For more details on this control, see The Chart control.

Creating charts through programming

WINDEV, WEBDEV and WINDEV Mobile include several functions for handling charts. These functions allow you to create the charts, to modify them, to change the display options...
For more details, see:
PHP You cannot create charts through programming. Only the interactive Chart controls are available.

- calculate the income of an investment from a monthly payment

For each case, you have the ability to view the amortization table corresponding to your parameters.
