Has anybody been able to get this working, it enables you to make use of AT&T's GraphViz tools in PHP.

I've been asked to look at a project that requires generating flow charts on the fly, and would appreciate a few pointers. I've got the AT&T 'Hello World' example working with webdot, would really appreciate something as simple as the equivalent working with PHP.

www.graphviz.org for anyone who is interested.

i have had good luck with [a href=\"http://www.advsofteng.com/index.html\" target=\"_blank\"]Chart Director[/a] but it costs money.

also might want to look into [a href=\"http://labs.macromedia.com/technologies/flexcharting_components2/\" target=\"_blank\"]Flex Charting Components[/a] they are a little move visually pleasing.

Thanks for the link to Chart Director. Unfortunately, judging from its chart gallery, it doesn't offer flow charts which is what I need for this project, the ability to draw flow charts on the fly from data within a SQL db.

I've used JPGraph quite a lot with great effect, one of the best on the fly charting programs for working with PHP, very flexible and with the right amount of tweaking can produce impressive results. Sadly, it doesn't offer flow charts either, in fact the only thing I've come across that seems able to do this is GraphViz from AT&T, hence the question.
