I'm discontinuing this project in favor of more flexible approaches. For my own projects I've switched to HighchartsPHP with ease. I recommend you to also make the switch, since I won't be updating this packages with new features. Thank you all for your support!

Quick-Guide for ZF2 Skeleton Application

In this quick guide, we will place a very humble line chart in the ZF2 Skeleton Application. Before starting make sure you are using a clean ZF2 Skeleton Application, and that you already set up highroller-zf2 using the instructions above.

Open module/Application/src/Application/Controller/IndexController.php.

  1. Include HighRoller files:

    use HighRoller\LineChart;
    use HighRoller\SeriesData;
  2. Inside indexAction function create a new line chart:

    $linechart = new LineChart();
    $linechart->title->text = 'Line Chart';
    $series = new SeriesData();
    $series->name = 'myData';
    $chartData = array(5324, 7534, 6234, 7234, 8251, 10324);
    foreach ($chartData as $value)
  3. Pass the your HighRoller object $linechart to the view:

    return new ViewModel(array('highroller' => $linechart));

Open module/Application/view/application/index/index.phtml

  1. Include highcharts.js file (you could also do this in your layout):

    <script src="http://code.highcharts.com/highcharts.js"></script>
    <script src="http://code.highcharts.com/modules/exporting.js"></script>
  2. At the top of the file:

    • Add a HTML div where your chart will be rendered to,
    • Set the div id in the HighRoller object,
    • Finally append the render script.
    <div id="highroller"></div>
        $this->highroller->chart->renderTo = "highroller";
  3. You should now see a beautiful simple line chart in your main page, just like this one:
