Use json data from a dynamic PHP array

Question

Hi,

my PHP script generates a bi-dimensional array.

Jchartfx uses JSON as main way to populate graphs, I used json_encode php() function.

The result is:

{"-2":{"Angle of Attack":-2,"Lift coefficient":-0.092},"-1":{"Angle of 

Attack":-1,"Lift coefficient":0.019},"0":{"Angle of Attack":0,"Lift

coefficient":0.131},"1":{"Angle of Attack":1,"Lift

coefficient":0.241},"2":{"Angle of Attack":2,"Lift

coefficient":0.353},"3":{"Angle of Attack":3,"Lift

coefficient":0.464},"4":{"Angle of Attack":4,"Lift

coefficient":0.574},"5":{"Angle of Attack":5,"Lift

coefficient":0.686},"6":{"Angle of Attack":6,"Lift

coefficient":0.797},"7":{"Angle of Attack":7,"Lift

coefficient":0.908},"8":{"Angle of Attack":8,"Lift

coefficient":1.019},"9":{"Angle of Attack":9,"Lift

coefficient":1.131},"10":{"Angle of Attack":10,"Lift

coefficient":1.241},"11":{"Angle of Attack":11,"Lift

coefficient":1.353},"12":{"Angle of Attack":12,"Lift

coefficient":1.464},"13":{"Angle of Attack":13,"Lift

coefficient":1.575}}

Let's put it in a more readable way:

Array

(

[-2] => Array

(

[Angle of Attack] => -2

[Lift coefficient] => -0.092

)

[-1] => Array

(

[Angle of Attack] => -1

[Lift coefficient] => 0.019

)

[0] => Array

(

[Angle of Attack] => 0

[Lift coefficient] => 0.131

)

...up to the N-th element of the array. 

 How do I dinamically pass the JSON bi-dimensional array to jchartfx, which uses js scripts?


            var data = [

            { "Angle of Attack": "xxx", "Lift coefficient": yyy },

            { "Angle of Attack": "xxx", "Lift coefficient": yyy },

            { "Angle of Attack": "xxx", "Lift coefficient": yyy },

            { "Angle of Attack": "xxx", "Lift coefficient": yyy },

            { "Angle of Attack": "xxx", "Lift coefficient": yyy },

            { "Angle of Attack": "xxx", "Lift coefficient": yyy }            ];

            liftcurve.setDataSource(data);

I wonder if saving the JSON bi-dimensional array to a file and then loading the same JSON file with jchartfx would do the trick.

However, I couldn't understand how to use the jquery example described at: http://support.softwarefx.com/jChartFX/article/2601043#fb9ec7bf-1b86-e211-84a5-0019b9e6b500

$.ajax({

            url

: ("/services/SamplesService.asmx/jChartFXDataSvc"),

            data

: "{'year':'2011'}",

            type

: "POST",

            contentType

: "application/json; charset=utf-8",

            dataType

: "json",

            success

: function (result) {

                chart1

.setDataSource(result.d);

           

},

            error

: function (xhr, txt, err) {

                alert

("error connecting to data: " + txt);            }

       

});

Thanks in advance

Fixed.

Let $arrData be the 2-dim php array, "Amgle of Attack" the x value and "Lift coefficient" the y value:

 

$liftcurve_plot[$i] = "{\"Angle of Attack\": \"".$arrData[$i][1]."\", \"Lift coefficient\": ".$arrData[$i][2]."}"; //plot

 

 Then:

var data = [
                <?php echo implode($liftcurve_plot, ','); ?>
                ];

 

Et voil
