Alan Bell just posted on his weblog
about how he had taken the scatter graph idea
and turned it into an on-line demo. Only difference is, he forces the HTML to be generated rather than creating the layers and letting Domino generate the HTML. It is a good solution for the web, but not as good for coexistence, which is more my fixation
One nice touch that Alan added was a hotspot with a specific text value so that you could mouse over the dot and see a value. I suggested to him that he should use the technique shown in Text popups on web and Notes client
, but he says that the mouse over won't work if the value is only a space. I believe that is what he found, but I still bet there is a way to make it work, so I'll give a couple things a try. In the meantime, take a look at Alan's post and download his database if you want to try the technique yourself.
