help newbie - How would you color/highlight a specific state in a US map using xml and the api


Recommended Posts

Please Help,

 I have inherited the chart fx project at our company.  I have been looking for examples of any kind, I keep hearing reference to a "Chart FX Resource Center" but I am not sure where to find it.  If anyone can point me to this resource I would appreciate it. Second question: I have a xml depictation of a United States Map, broken down by States.  How do I highlight certain states??  For example, color Indiana blue and Illinois red, based on points that would exist with those state boundaries.  What is the API chart fx property that needs to be set, if in fact one exists??  As a final note any tutorials on chart fx would also be greatly appreciated!

 Thank you,

The resource center is installed with the product, you should find a link to it in your Program Groups.

Documentation can also be found on-line here:


About the Maps question, you are referring to the Maps extension and what you are describing is basically the core functionality of the product: mapping data to visual attributes (like color) on a map.

You will find complete samples and tutorials for achieving this in the documentation, specifically:


 Look under Extensions -> Maps -> Working With Data
