Hello I am trying to create a dashboard with Pie chart ad Stacked bar chart. I am using Internet Explorer 8 (official Internet browser of the company). When the rendering happens, I get random results. Please see below:




size of the bar chart and font are not at all consistent .

It should be a CSS problem because when I use Chrome or Firefox I get normal charts.

This is a small piece of my code

        text : function(point) {
          return "This is " + point.y;        

      var clusteredColumnsLegend = new SelectableLegend({chart: barChart}, "barChartLegend");   

<body class="claro">
 <div id="pieChart" style="width: 300px; height: 300px;"></div>
<div id="legendTwo"></div> 
<div data-dojo-type="dojox.charting.widget.Chart" id="barChart" style="width: 350px; height: 200px;">

<div id="barChartLegend"></div> 

Would it be possible to know what is the problem? How to resolve it?

I have another questions: is there another way to create charts?
