Right. It uses the Google Chart API, which depends on being able to  
access the network-based Google Chart service.

I hope some others on the list will chime in on this one. There's no  
built-in charting library for FXRuby, but if there are any existing  
Ruby libraries that can be used to produce chart graphics, we can  
probably find a way to feed their output into an FXRuby image.

Hope this helps,
