Hello Everyone,

I am trying to learn php along with Dojo. So I am testing how to create a bar graph from data in my mysql database. However, I am having a problem. I can't seem to be able to read the data. I am posting the code below so you guys can see how far I have made on this. My db (brazil) is very simple with 2 tables (inca, ac) and each table has 3 columns (participantsEnrolled, participantsExpected, participantsUnassigned). I am not sure what I am doing wrong. I was able to create the graph declaring the data, but I would like to create the graph dinamically from the db. I appreciate any help. Thanks.

$con = mysql_connect("localhost", "test", "test") or die('Sorry, could not connect to database server');
mysql_select_db("brazil", $con) or die('Sorry, could not connect to database');

//participants enrolled
$query1 = "SELECT inca.participantsEnrolled, ac.participantsEnrolled from inca, ac";
$result = mysql_query($query) or die ('Could not find brazil');
$enrolled = mysql_fetch_array($result) or die ('could not retrieve the record');

//participants expected
query2 = "SELECT inca.participantsExpected, ac.participantsExpected from inca, ac";
$result2 = mysql_query($query2) or die ('Could not find brazil');
$expected = mysql_fetch_array($result2) or die ('could not retrieve the record');

I am not familiar with dojo but I guess your problem appears to be reading the DB results. The mysql_fetch_array function returns only one row so you should run it in a while loop to retrieve all rows.

while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($result2)) {
    // do whatever you need with the row 
}

Now, what you do in the while loop depends on what is the structure of data that dojo expects.

If this is not the cause of your problem please post any error messages or debug output.

As a side note I would recommend replacing outdated mysql_* functions with more up to date versions: either myqli or PDO.

the basic database I created contains one row of data

inca:
participantsEnrolled=10, participantsExpected=20, participantsUnassigned =2
ac:
participantsEnrolled=5, participantsExpected=15, participantsUnassigned =1

I am trying to retrived an array of participantsEnrolled and an array of participantsExpected, in this case only 2 of each
so

dataEnrolled = [10, 5]
dataExpected = [20, 15]

and I thought I would be able to plot these numbers in a bar graph. That's the reason I didn't do the while loop. Am I wrong to think this way?

OK, you are basically doing it right (you should get the same result with while loop, too). But I do not think you can pass a PHP array to javascript (dojo) directly, just like that. You should convert it to string that looks like javascript array, something like:

$js_array = '[' . implode(',', $enrolled) . ']';
...
var dataEnrolled = {items: ($js_array)};

I tried the implode function and nothing...so far this is what I have. I tried using the store functionality.

Please put this temporary debug code immediately after line 26:

print_r($enrolled);
print_r($expected);
die();

and post what you get.

This is what I get

Array ( [0] => 5 [1] => 10 ) Array ( [0] => 20 [1] => 50 )

Now, it is a question of what parameters the dataStore1 and dataStore2 objects expect. If a JSON with one property and value an array, then you should add this code to create arrays in javascript format:

$enrolled_js_array = '[' . implode(',', $enrolled) . ']';
$expected_js_array = '[' . implode(',', $expected) . ']';

and change code in lines 42 and 43 to:

var dataEnrolled = {$enrolled_js_array}; // [5,10] in your case
var dataExpected = {$expected_js_array}; // [20,50] in your case

since you are using Items property name later in the object definition (I doubt you can use it twice). I am just guessing, as I said, since I do not know anything about using charts in dojo.

this is what I tried, for some reason I still can~t get it right. It says that my implode function is not being used correctly. As you can see in the code (I comment it out) I tested it with some hard array data and without the implode part and the graph was showing, so I think now there is something wrong with the query, because it is not getting all the data from the database. It only gets the first row for each table. I had added more 3 more rows of data to one of the tables.

This brings us back to my first post to your question. You have to use a while loop to read all the rows. Within the while loop you have to construct the array that the charting function expects. From your hard-coded array examples I guess you need just two indexed arrays.

// initialize the array
$enrolled_array = array();

// add valus from each row
while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($result2)) {
    $enrolled_array[] = $row['participantsEnrolled'];
}

This is again my guess since I do not know the db structure and dojo. So please adapt that to your needs.

You are absolutly right, I actually incremented the loop this afternoon and finally when I print, I am getting the full dataset. The problem now is that it doesn't seem like the

var dataEnrolled = <?php echo array_to_chart_json($array1); ?>;
var dataExpected = <?php echo array_to_chart_json($array2); ?>;

is being passed correctly. The chart.Series still can't seem to be able to read this array. Here is my latest code.

I think you first have to define (and let me know) what is the format the dojo chart expects. You were using javascript array in previous posts and now use json. Can you please post the exact format you want the dataEnrolled and dataExpected be.

What is the purpose of this line:

$array2 = array_map('trim',explode(',',implode(',',$array2)));

Before I wasn't getting the complete array, but after I found it online the

$array1 = array_map('trim',explode(',',implode(',',$array1)));

example, now the array is getting all the data from the database.

the dojo chart can pass the data as an array, or as a storieSeries (with jason format data)

To my knowledge, the code:

$array1 = array_map('trim',explode(',',implode(',',$array1)));

is equal to the following:

$array1 = array_map('trim', $array1);

You were right, I do not know what I was thinking. Thanks for the heads up!

So here is the new code. Still not being able to display the graph tho. Here it is the updated code. I am not using the json to pass the arrays.

Now we know that the query is getting the correct data and the array is receiving the full data set. So, I seem to be messing up in those too lines:

var dataEnrolled = $array1;
var dataExpected = $array2;
0

Please insert the following code on line 64

alert(dataEnrolled.toSource());
alert(dataExpected.toSource());

and check whether the data for dojo chart is formatted correctly (it will be displayed in two dialog boxes).

it does not give me any errors, it just give me a blank page. No, I have never used Firebug

Without debugging tools it is like walking in a dark room. It is hard to figure out what is the format of the data passed to the charting function. Do you use Firefox? There must be a javascript console where you can get basic information about javascript code execution. I strongly recommend to install Firebug exstension though.

So I installed Firebug, and took a look at the code. It seems like the data has the correct format. Now, I am wondering if I have done some of the 'require' incorrectly.

This is what I see on Firebug:

require(["dojox/charting/Chart", "dojox/charting/StoreSeries", "dojo/store/Memory", "dojo/store/Observable",
"dojox/charting/axis2d/Default", "dojox/charting/plot2d/StackedBars", "dojox/charting/plot2d/Markers", "dojo/ready"],

Great, I got the bar working :)
But I still have some questions, if you don't mind me. I know you are probably tired of me at this point.

Questions:
1. I wanted to create a StackedBar, the result is correct but I am not using the StackedBar, you see it in the code, I am using regular Bar. When I tried to use StackedBar the graph does not show. How can I fix that?
2. I was able to add the SelectableLegend, so it can be a little fancy, and I also added Tooltip. However, for the tooltip only the Uruguay Bar is able to show the correct array value. For the other bars, it seems like its getting the array index and not the value. How can I change that so it can correcly display the value when I hove over the bar?

Thanks again for all your help.

But I still have some questions, if you don't mind me. I know you are probably tired of me at this point.

No, I am quite happy to help if I can. But the problem is that I haven't used dojo in my life so I do not have a clue about how it works. You have to figure out what is the format of data that dojo chart of selected type expects and you then have to provide data in that format.

I would suggest you close this thread and start a fresh new one so others can contribute (I doubt many people are following this thread since it is so long). You give it a good title like How to create a Dojo StackedBar so Dojo gurus can jump in (hope there are any).
