How it works

AnyChart Stock Component offers you a lot of ways to set chart configuration, difference between the ways and all available options are described in XML/JSON Configuration Options and Set Configuration as XML/JSON File articles.

This sample highlights the feature Set Configuration as XML/JSON File: ability to use server side script as the source for XML configuration (of course the same can be done with JSON config files).

When you select different options from drop down controls, URL with parameters is constructed and passed to setXMLFile method, depending on parameters passes source.php script returns different XML configuration and component shows different charts.
