Finally I have released the final version of SPJS Charts v7 – you find it here.
I haven’t been able to update the user manual to describe the changes from v6, but basically the setup and most functionality is the same. The Custom datasource option is also linked in the top of the user manual.
The solution has been updated to use asynchronous REST calls instead of the old webservice calls. This means the page responsiveness is better if you have multiple charts in one page.
You can still use a CAML query to filter the datasource, and in that case it will still use webservice calls, but asynchronous so the page don’t freeze up when waiting for the results. This does in fact make the query faster that with REST.
Please post any questions in the forum, or feedback in the comments below.
PS: Existing v6 licenses are still valid for v7.
