Hi Guys,

Today,I will learn you how to implement simple dynamic column highcharts using php mysql database.We will show example of php highcharts column chart.Highcharts is a one type js library, that provide to populate bar chart, line chart, area chart, column chart etc. Highcharts library also provide several theme and graphic design that way you can make better layout. Highcharts is a very popular and simple library for php developer.

Here, I will give you full example for simply display highcharts column chart using php as bellow.

Step 1: Create Database

In first step we require to create new database "phpexample", Or you can rename as you like. After creating successfully database, In this example we will show compare column chart of viewer and clicks, So we require to create tables. we require following two tables.

1)test_viewer

2)test_click

In this step two table by following mysql query as like bellow example.

Create test_viewer table

 

CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `test_viewer` (

`id` int(11) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,

`numberofview` int(11) NOT NULL,

`created_at` timestamp NOT NULL DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP,

PRIMARY KEY (`id`)

) ENGINE=InnoDB DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1 AUTO_INCREMENT=10 ;

Create test_click table:

 

CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `test_click` (

`id` int(11) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,

`numberofclick` int(12) NOT NULL,

`created_at` timestamp NOT NULL DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP,

PRIMARY KEY (`id`)

) ENGINE=InnoDB DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1 AUTO_INCREMENT=10 ;

Now we require to some dummy data with different year, So you can add like added bellow screen shot, I added both tables with some dummy records that way you can simply add in yout database for testing.

test_viewer table

test_click table:

Step 2: Create Database Configuration File

Now this step, I need to create on mysql database configuration file. In this file we will add details of phpmyadmin username, password and database name, So let's create new file "db_config.php" and put bellow code.

 

<?php

$dbHost = "localhost";

$dbDatabase = "phpexample";

$dbUser = "root";

$dbPasswrod = "root";

$mysqli = mysqli_connect($dbHost, $dbUser, $dbPasswrod, $dbDatabase);

?>

Step 3: Create index.php File

Here this last step, we have to just create index.php file in root folder. In this file i write code of getting data from mysql database and convert into json data. So let's create new file "index.php" and put bellow code.

 

<?php

require('db_config.php');

/* Getting test_viewer table data */

$sql = "SELECT SUM(numberofview) as count FROM test_viewer

GROUP BY YEAR(created_at) ORDER BY created_at";

$viewer = mysqli_query($mysqli,$sql);

$viewer = mysqli_fetch_all($viewer,MYSQLI_ASSOC);

$viewer = json_encode(array_column($viewer, 'count'),JSON_NUMERIC_CHECK);

/* Getting test_click table data */

$sql = "SELECT SUM(numberofclick) as count FROM test_click

GROUP BY YEAR(created_at) ORDER BY created_at";

$click = mysqli_query($mysqli,$sql);

$click = mysqli_fetch_all($click,MYSQLI_ASSOC);

$click = json_encode(array_column($click, 'count'),JSON_NUMERIC_CHECK);

?>
