11 RIL stock data from Quandl - Filtered on a range of dates

This is an improvement on the chart shown in the previous post where NSE data was picked up in CSV format from Quandl - an excellent source of global timeseries data -- and shown in a candlestick format. Since the data that we are plotting this time, Reliance share prices, goes back a long time. We will be using a RangeFilter to choose the start and end dates of our plot. The big challenge in this case was to convert the date data obtained from Quandl which was in STRING format into the DATE format that is required by the  RangeFilter. This was done by using the code very kindly provide by ASGALLANT.The final chart is seen on this html page and also in this blog page.

an earlier post on dashboards also talks about filters in some detail. however the code is possibly cleaner here.

  1. I was trying to change

    'vAxis': {'viewWindow': {'min': 0, 'max': 500}},


    'vAxis': {'viewWindow': {'min': dataPK.getColumnRange(4).min, 'max': dataPK.getColumnRange(4).max}},

    Any idea why that wouldn't work?
