3D and 2D charts, runtime option for FM7 and up
Dacons has released ChartFire, a FileMaker plug-in for Mac and Windows that brings full chart-making capabilities to the database program for the first time. Users can produce 3D and 2D pie, bar and line charts from an unlimited number of data series and adjust charts dynamically. Finished charts are created as PNG or JPEG images which can be stored within a container field or exported.
ChartFire works with Filmaker versions 7 through 11, offering additional charting flexibility in the most recent release. Developer licenses for royalty-free runtime distribution of charting abilities is available, and single-user license packages start at $59. A free trial version is offered, and a full range of cross-platform, network and developer licenses is also available.
