Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)
assembleBarGraph is a recursive Custom Function based on a clever Web Viewer's example named "Live Bar Graph", written by Mr. Bruce Robertson, and posted at http://www.briandunning.com/wv/21. His example inteligently draws Bar Charts using only HTML data scheme.
Mr. Robertson explained; "The data protocol supports entering complete HTML into the URL address field ... you can have a live, calculated HTML that displays instantly in Web Viewer with NO SCRIPTS and NO FILE EXPORT."
Since I favor using FileMaker native tools and functions whenever possible -- and rely on plugins or external applications only when it is utterly necessary -- I decided to give Mr. Robertson's example a deeper look, and realized its code could be generated from a recursive CF.
Please read the short text that precedes the code itself for instructions.

|Hello, Mr. Robertson,
Thanks for pointing out the "small" problem; I have already corrected it, together with other "minor" grammatical errors. :-)
Your WebViewer example is really great; once again, thanks for sharing it.
