czChart is a simple and cross browser jQuery plugin that allows you to create various types of charts (like bar chart, pie chart, group stack chart, etc) on the web page, based on HTML5 canvas element.

Basic Usage:

1. Include the jQuery javascript library and jQuery czChart's files in the page.

<link type="text/css" href="css/czchart.css" rel="stylesheet"/>
<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.10.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="js/czGraphic.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="js/czchart.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="js/czPieChart.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="js/czBarChart.js"></script>

2. Include the excanvas.js for the support of 2D command-based drawing in internet explorer.

<script type="text/javascript" src="js/excanvas.js"></script>

3. Create a container for your chart.

<div id="barchart"></div>

4. Draw a basic vertical bar chart in the javascript.

<script type="text/javascript">
$("#barchart1").czChart({
data:[12,13,24,10,5,7,9],
type:'hBar', // type of chart will be render when user call. Array of all types that the plugin able to handle. 'vBar','vBar', 'hBar', 'vGroupBar', 'hGroupBar', 'vStackBar', 'hStackBar', 'vGroupStackBar', 'hGroupStackBar'
