The first part of any web page containing
a multigraph graph is the HTML file for the web page.
As described in Quick Start, the HTML file should
be done in a
script tag in the
part of the page.
There are two other things that need to happen in the HTML file. The first
is to create a
div element somewhere in the page, and assign
some value to its
id attribute. This
div is where
multigraph will draw the graph, and it can be anywhere in the HTML page.
The second is to write a line of the form
new Multigraph(DIV_ID, MUGL_FILE, [WIDTH,HEIGHT]);
where DIV_ID is the value that you chose for the
containing the graph, MUGL_FILE is the name of the a mugl file
describing the graph, and WIDTH and HEIGHT are the width and height
that you want (in pixels) for the graph. Typically this line should go
in the page body's
onload attribute, so that it is called
only once, when the page is initially loaded.
A web page may include more than one Multigraph graph. Just create
div for each graph, each with its own
id, write separate
calls to the Multigraph constructor for each one, and create
separate mugl files for each one. If your page contains
more than one graph, you may want to put these Multigraph constructor
calls into a function, and then call that function in the
onload attribute, in order to keep
onload value simple.
To view your graph, just load the HTML page into a supported browser (Firefox or Safari). When you publish the page to a web server, put your graph's mugl file(s) in the same folder or directory on the server where you put the HTML file. (Unless your HTML file refers to it with a relative path, in which case you should put it in the correct relative location.)
