Gallery - Bar Chart Glass

We at Open flash Chart always strive to make things easy for ourselves. So glass bars have almost the same parameters as the bar method. The glass effect is created by drawing a semi-transparent white overlay ontop of the rounded bar.

Object: bar_glass()

bar_glass( integer $alpha, string $colour, string $outline_colour )

See the bar object for details. The only interesting parameter is $outline_colour, this is the outline colour of the bar. Choose a colour a little darker than the fill colour to make the bar look like it has some depth.
