Rendering platform
Actuate BIRT Designer uses Highcharts, a third-party charting library, to render HTML5 charts. This charting library, written in JavaScript, is integrated into Actuate BIRT Designer’s standard chart builder, where you create HTML5 charts using the familiar user interface.
Highcharts also provides a full API, which you can use to programmatically add, remove, or modify chart elements after creating the chart in the chart builder. Access to the Highcharts API is through the chart builder’s script editor.
