1 : Collecting data from MySQL database

After connecting to database through config.php file, we will run the SQL to collect the data from MySQL table. You can read more on MySQLi and how to collect data from table.
if($stmt = $connection->query("SELECT month,sale,profit,expanses, exp_fixed,exp_variable FROM chart_data_column")){

  echo "No of records : ".$stmt->num_rows."<br>";
$php_data_array = Array(); // create PHP array
  echo "<table>
<tr> <th>Month</th><th>Sale</th><th>Profit</th><th>Expanses</th><th>Exp Fxd</th><th>Exp Vrv</th></tr>";
while ($row = $stmt->fetch_row()) {
   echo "<tr><td>$row[0]</td><td>$row[1]</td><td>$row[2]</td><td>$row[3]</td><td>$row[4]</td><td>$row[5]</td></tr>";
   $php_data_array[] = $row; // Adding to array
echo "</table>";
echo $connection->error;

2 : Data array in PHP

Before displaying records in a table we have created an array in PHP ( $php_data_array). While displaying the records in a table we store each record inside the PHP array.
$php_data_array[] = $row; // Adding to array
After displaying all the records in a table we have the $php_data_array with all the data collected from MySQL table. We can display the Json string like this.
echo json_encode($php_data_array);

3 : Transferring data from PHP to JavaScript to crate the chart

By using json_encode we will create an json string which can be used to create the JavaScript two dimensional array.
echo "<script>
        var my_2d = ".json_encode($php_data_array)."

4 : Adding data to Chart

Our JavaScript array my_2d stores all the data required for creating the chart. We need to display them in the format required by our Chart library.
for(i = 0; i < my_2d.length; i++)
    data.addRow([my_2d[i][0], parseInt(my_2d[i][1]),parseInt(my_2d[i][2]),parseInt(my_2d[i][3]),parseInt(my_2d[i][4]),parseInt(my_2d[i][5])]);
We used parseInt() function to convert input string value to Integer. JavaScript part is here .
<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
<script type="text/javascript">

      // Load the Visualization API and the corechart package.
      google.charts.load('current', {packages: ['corechart']});
      function drawChart() {

        // Create the data table.
        var data = new google.visualization.DataTable();
        data.addColumn('string', 'Month');
        data.addColumn('number', 'Sale');
		data.addColumn('number', 'Profit');
		data.addColumn('number', 'Expanses');
		data.addColumn('number', 'Exp_fixed');
		data.addColumn('number', 'Exp_var');
        for(i = 0; i < my_2d.length; i++)
    data.addRow([my_2d[i][0], parseInt(my_2d[i][1]),parseInt(my_2d[i][2]),parseInt(my_2d[i][3]),parseInt(my_2d[i][4]),parseInt(my_2d[i][5])]);
       var options = {
          title: ' Sale Profit',
        curveType: 'function',
		width: 600,
        height: 500,
          legend: { position: 'bottom' }

        var chart = new google.visualization.LineChart(document.getElementById('curve_chart'));
        chart.draw(data, options);

5. HTML part

We can show the chart inside a <DIV> tag and place the same any where we want to display the chart.
<div id="curve_chart"></div>

The chart drawn above can be displayed with live internet connection as the library is to be loaded from

Data is collected from MySQL database table so data can be edited by using script and the same will be reflected by the Chart. We have not included this part in the present script and there are many tutorials available here one handling data using PHP and MySQL.

You can read tutorials on other types of charts displayed by using data from database.
