I was just wondering is there any jQuery plugin that people would recommend for drawing bar charts or general graphs?

Tried searching? Google brings up lots of results for jquery+graphs.
Other than that the other things I know of are gRaphael and the Google Chart API, both of which are good.

yes of course tried search, in fact it there are quite a few libraries (including flot, highchart, etc) that all look fairly impressive - I was just wondering if anyone had feedback or thoughts on which might be best

I have only used the Google Chart API which is probably the easiest as the program does everything for you. The drawback is that they are just static images and so if you want any sort of interactivity (e.g. clickable bars) then you need something else, like one of the jQuery plugins (e.g. the top one in a search) or gRaphael.

thanks - for the moment a static image is probibly ok- ideally I'd love to be able to grab the left most column of a barchart and be able to pull it to the left edge, but I think thats too much to hope for.

Perhaps you can do that with CSS, e.g. using clip().
