    I’m using the example copied directly from the web page: “Live Updating Charts from JSON API & AJAX”

    I’ve put it on my apache server.

    It doesn’t seem to work.

    I just get a blank page.

    I cut and copied the text below directly from the example on the page. i’ve even tried setting CORS. HELP!!!

    <!DOCTYPE HTML>
    <html>
    <head>
    <script type=”text/javascript”>
    window.onload = function() {
    var dataPoints = [];
    var chart;
    $.getJSON(“https://canvasjs.com/services/data/datapoints.php?xstart=1&ystart=10&length=10&type=json&#8221;, function(data) {
    $.each(data, function(key, value){
    dataPoints.push({x: value[0], y: parseInt(value[1])});
    });
    chart = new CanvasJS.Chart(“chartContainer”,{
    title:{
    text:”Live Chart with dataPoints from External JSON”
    },
    data: [{
    type: “line”,
    dataPoints : dataPoints,
    }]
    });
    chart.render();
    updateChart();
    });
    function updateChart() {
    $.getJSON(“https://canvasjs.com/services/data/datapoints.php?xstart=&#8221; + (dataPoints.length + 1) + “&ystart=” + (dataPoints[dataPoints.length – 1].y) + “&length=1&type=json”, function(data) {
    $.each(data, function(key, value) {
    dataPoints.push({
    x: parseInt(value[0]),
    y: parseInt(value[1])
    });
    });
    chart.render();
    setTimeout(function(){updateChart()}, 1000);
    });
    }
    }
    </script>
    <script type=”text/javascript” src=”https://canvasjs.com/assets/script/jquery-1.11.1.min.js”></script&gt;

    For security reasons, cross-origin requests are restricted by browsers. JSONP allows you to sidestep the cross-origin requests. To access JSON from a different domain, you can refer to JSONP. Please take a look at this JSFiddle that creates a line chart from AJAX & JSONP.
