I have to create a program that will use a chart to show some information. I have the program and I created a chart as a XML file. Is it possible to create a link on the java program that will call the chart when used, for example a button. Where would I start looking for help getting this done.

If you click a button, you could load the file and draw the chart on a JPanel, sure. You have to be more specific in what you want though.

You might want to fill out your description a bit. And it would help if you used real terminology instead of vague words. For example it isn't clear what you mean when you say you want to "load" a file. What does that mean? (Hint: that isn't standard terminology, it's something you made up.)

So: you have one vague and unclear statement, and nothing else. Not very helpful if you want help.

If you don't know the real words for what you want to do, then you could provide a description of what you want to happen. Don't use technical-sounding words in your description unless they are the right technical-sounding words. Instead just use ordinary words to describe what you want.
