    i try to use the “PHP Spline Charts & Graphs” to show daily sales report of the month. We have a target and on daily basic i we go near the target each day of month the graph increase. But in the x value you are passing date in different format like “array(“x” => 946665000000, “y” => 3289000),” how can i convert my date into that format? please help. in PHP i have the date like “2020-03-05” so now need to convert it to that format.



    To convert PHP date to JavaScript timestamp, first, you need to convert PHP date to PHP timestamp using strtotime and then convert PHP timestamp to JavaScript timestamp by multiplying PHP timestamp by 1000. Also, setting xValueType to ‘dateTime’ should work fine in your case.

    $phpTimestamp = strtotime("2020-03-05");
    $javaScriptTimestamp = $phpTimestamp * 1000;

    how with date and time like… 2020-02-17 07:25:34 i try with *1000. but just date is correct, time was wrong…! thanks!



    It seems to be working fine. The difference in time component could be because of time-zone difference. Setting time-zone should work fine in your case. Please refer this stackoverflow answer for more information.

    If you are still facing issue, kindly share sample project over Google-Drive or Onedrive along with sample data so that we can run it locally at our end to understand the scenario better and help you out.
