How to get local data into Highcharts ?

Sun Dec 02, 2018 11:51 pm

Hi,

New to Highcharts, I am trying to get a folder called data.json into highcharts, but cannot get it to work ?

I tried in the index.htm .... $.getJSON("ajax/data.json", function (data) { ............ etc

and also tried ..... $.getJSON("data.json", function (data) { ............ etc

neither worked. what am i doing wrong, i have xammp running
and the index,htm and the file data.json are in the same htdocs folder.

This is just a small part of the json file
[
1167609600000,
0.7537
],
[
1167696000000,
0.7537
],
[
1167782400000,
0.7559


any ideas welcome ?


Thanks

Hello questuk,

There is whole information about using JSON files in Highcharts API: https://www.highcharts.com/docs/working ... processing. Read it carefully and try to figure out what could be wrong in your files. Let know if this help.

Best regards!

Hi,

I did get it working by using the example that comes with Highcharts-6.2.0
Look in ... examples/line-time-series/index.htm

My files were in a folder called .... C:\xampp\htdocs\V1.1
My JSON file was called .... data.json also in the above folder.

So you need to change the following .... to your folder and file name.
$.getJSON("/V1.1/data.json", function(data) {

Also I had to change these ...
<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.1.1.min.js"></script>
<script src="../../code/highcharts.js"></script>
<script src="../../code/modules/exporting.js"></script>
<script src="../../code/modules/export-data.js"></script>

to

<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.1.1.min.js"></script>
<script src="code/highcharts.js"></script>
<script src="code/modules/exporting.js"></script>
<script src="code/modules/export-data.js"></script>

This points to where my modules were in my folder V1.1, yours may be in a different place ?



Hope this helps someone in the future !

Thanks

I haven't tested it locally, I just sent you info to documentation but I am glad that you figured out it by yourself ;)

Kind regards!
