Book Description

Sencha Charts is a new and powerful library used to create rich and beautiful charts for your Sencha Touch and Ext JS applications. With built-in HTML5, Sencha Charts is optimized for performance and fully supportive of gestures and touch devices to make visualizing data effortless.

First, you will get to grips with charting fundamentals using multiple tools and then engage with the Sencha Charts architecture.

You will then learn how to use out-of-the-box charts, and then create your own custom cartesian, polar, and spacefilling charts to visualize your own data.

Finally, you will see how Sencha Charts compares with other charting libraries for all your data expression needs.
