In 2006, Jack Slocum began working on a set of extension utilities for the Yahoo! User Interface (YUI) library. These extensions were later organized into an independent library of codes, named as “yui-ext.” In the same year, Jack released its final version, whose name was changed to Ext.
Its chart components are supported by all platforms and browsers and provide the following advantages:
- Easy to customize with the help of attributes
- Does not need any proprietary tool to develop the Ext JS-based component
- Supports a wide range of data sources like XML, JSON and Array
- Supports static as well as dynamic data
In this white paper, we explore the customizations possible with these charts. We also explain how to connect to a server side component like a servlet / php file / asp.net and some Ext JS concepts like store, proxy API, reader, writer, etc.
