Spline updating each second


Advertisements

We have already seen the configuration used to draw a chart in Highcharts Configuration Syntax chapter.

An example of a Spline Chart updating each second is given below.

Configurations

Let us now see the additional configurations/steps taken.

series.addPoint

Add a new point created randomly to the series at an interval of 1000 milliseconds.

Timer tempTimer = new Timer() {  
   @Override  
   public void run() {  
      series.addPoint(  
         new Date().getTime(),  
         Random.nextDouble(),  
         true, true, true  
      );  
   }  
};  
tempTimer.scheduleRepeating(1000);
