Joomla 3.x versions
Version Date Changes
5.06 23 August 2017 Handles the CSV download option in version 5.13 of the component.
If the Chart ID on the plugin call is non-numeric, it is used as the name of a Get or Post parameter containing the actual Chart ID.
5.05 20 December 2016 There is now an optional "class" parameter that allows you to add a CSS class to the div element containing the chart. This makes CSS control of chart sizing and responsiveness much easier.
The extra Javascript is now executed every time the chart is re-drawn in auto-refresh mode. You must have at least version 5.11 of the component for this to work.
5.04 1 December 2016 Improvements to tracing, which are very helpful for resolving complex plugin problems, especially when using the plugin variables or get/post variables. Version 5.09 (or higher) of the component is required to take advantage of the new tracing, but the new plugin can still work with older versions of the component, and the new component can still work with older versions of the plugin.
5.03 15 November 2016 Supports the Joomla Update System. The Joomla admin interface will automatically notify you of new releases, and you will be able to install them with a single click in the Extensions Update Manager.
5.02 17 May 2016 Added a random parameter to auto-update requests in order to defeat caching, especially in the MS Edge browser.
Fix for a problem with resolution of multiple select variables in recent versions of Joomla.
5.01 17 April 2016 Fix for a bug that prevented auto-refresh working properly for charts with date axes. Unfortunately this also required a change to the component. For auto-refresh to work properly with date axes, you must have (at least) version 5.04 of the component AND (at least) version 5.01 of the plugin.
5.00 14 January 2016 Has a new parameter, "refresh" to automatically update and re-draw charts without re-drawing the entire page.
Includes logic to handle the external database objects introduced in version 5.00 of the component.
Now handles its parameters delimited by any kind of quotes, including smart quotes and html entities.
Joomla 2.5 and 3.x versions
Version Date Changes
4.03 2 October 2015 The plugin now supports drawing an optional link to a png image of the chart, which can be downloaded by the user. This feature requires version 4.05 (or later) of the Plotalot Component.
4.02 18 April 2014 The plugin has a new optional parameter, "full_width" to draw charts in a div without the display:"inline-block" style. See the user guide for usage.
4.01 20 February 2014 Charts are now drawn in a DIV (with display:inline-block) instead of a SPAN, which fixes a problem with positioning of tooltips on some charts.
4.00 17 February 2014 Internal changes for compatibility with version 4 of the Plotalot component.
Handles responsive resizing properly even if one or more charts are not drawn due to an error, for example if there is no data for the chart. Previously, this situation resulted in a Javascript error that prevented the resizing function from working properly for other charts on the page.
Get and Post data variable arrays are now supported, for example from "select multiple" input elements.
