The FusionCharts documentation is one of the best documentations I’ve ever seen, a pleasure to read, and the installation takes two minutes. Seems like a blast doesn’t it!
I thought so until the front-end developer for the project I’m working on came over to my desk and informed me that the charts did not render in IE 8. They worked fine in IE 7 and IE 9, but not IE 8. Say what? I checked it out and saw that FusionCharts.js gave me a “Invalid argument” error on line 76. Since Google is my friend, I googled the problem and found A LOT of other developers on the FusionCharts forum running into the same problem, but the only answer from FusionCharts was that their developers were working on it. They’ve been working on it for over a month and could not say when the bug would be fixed.
So what solved my problems?
Hopefully they’ll fix this in the next version, or at least add a note of it in their (almost) perfect documentation.
