How it works

This example demonstrates how to use dynamic data sources with AnyChart Stock component. Almost in all samples we demonstrate component behavior using static data sets, however, in real world it is important to have an ability to form data sets dynamically.

On of the ways to load new data and settings dynamically in AnyChart Stock is altering all configuration settings of the component (including data sources configuration) using Object model.

The specific feature of this sample is that the data source path is not changed - only GET-parameters of the request are different. The server script determines what data should be given to the component in terms of these parameters. You can see the script source by downloading this sample.

Data source is changed in chart.objectModel.data.dataSets[0].sourceUrl object model property, the url of PHP script is set, with "Symbol" and "Interval" parameters passed to it. Also, some visual settings (chart and series title) are changed using objectModel. After object model editing changes are applied using applyConfigChanges() method.
