canvas or SVG for charts


  • Hello,

    I would like to include a chart in my app with data from a database.(something like the one in Microsoft finance app)

    Is canvas or SVG the better choice for charts for metro style apps?

    The link below says content has been removed for SVG.  Where are the documentation for SVG.

  • SVG works fine in apps and scales well. I would guess it also is faster on the GPU, but that is just a guess. It could be animated too.
