Chart2 is the re-implementation of the charting component of OpenOffice.org. It is integrated in OOo 2.3.

Charts are used for visualizing data sets from e.g. spreadsheets by two and three dimensional diagrams. There are a lot of different two- and three-dimensional chart types you can choose from. This page gathers information about the new chart implementation of OpenOffice.org. It is especially written to help newcomers to the process of developing for the new OOo chart module.

If you would like to participate, if you have comments or questions related to the chart you are welcome on the graphics mailing lists: (users,dev,features,bugs,cvs)@graphics.openoffice.org. See also the side-box with some useful Links.

Development

If you like to help developing the chart, you can find useful information here.


Testing

The new chart implementation will be part of OpenOffice.org 2.3. A developer snapshot of the release candidates is available on the OOo download page. The localizations (CWS localisation21) and some final fixes for the chart (CWS chart12) are integrated into OOG680.m2.

For a current list of open issue for the Chart component see this complete query or a more specific one:

There is also a spreadsheet document containing the open chart issues. It is nice for sorting and filtering, but it is not up-to-date. Have a look at the first line to find out when the query was done.
