class ChartController extends Controller



* Show the application dashboard.


* @return \Illuminate\Http\Response


public function makeChart($type)


switch ($type) {

case 'bar':

$users = User::where(DB::raw("(DATE_FORMAT(created_at,'%Y'))"),date('Y'))


$chart = Charts::database($users, 'bar', 'highcharts')

->title("Monthly new Register Users")

->elementLabel("Total Users")

->dimensions(1000, 500)


->groupByMonth(date('Y'), true);


case 'pie':

$chart = Charts::create('donut', 'highcharts')

->title(' Laravel Donut Chart')

->labels(['First', 'Second', 'Third'])

->title(' Laravel GEO Chart')

->elementLabel(' Laravel GEO Chart label')

->labels(['ES', 'FR', 'RU'])

->colors(['#3D3D3D', '#985689'])






# code...



return view('chart', compact('chart'));

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html lang="en">


<meta charset="utf-8">

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge">

<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
