Access Europe – Thomas Möller (Better Access Charts)

Topic: State-of-the-art charts in Access with chart.js

Thomas Möller will be demonstrating his own approach to charting in AccessCharts.js

Microsoft Access needs significant improvements to its charting feature.
The original ‘classic’ charts in Access date from the 1990s.
A few years ago, Microsoft gave the charts in Access a facelift. They called it “Modern Charts”.
In some ways this was a good start, but much more could still be done to increase the power of Access charts.

There are countless JavaScript libraries on the world wide web that you can use to create cool charts.
Some of these charts even enable interaction with the user.
The really good news is that these features can also be used in Access

This presentation will show:

  • How to get state-of-the-art charts (based on chart.js) running in Access
  • What are the external dependencies and how can they be resolved?
  • How do we program the whole thing elegantly and clearly?
