First of all congrats for your work, it's great.

The problem comes when using flot inside a tab, and only for IE. More specifically, nothing is shown in IE browsers while in all other flot seems to behave ok.

I have been working with yahoo "taber" widget and flot. To be honest i'm not sure if this is just a problem of compatibility between the two or a bug in flot. I just let you know as i've been spending several hours trying to get this to work.

thank you

Hi i've been experiencing this problem as i'm using flot with bootstrap tabs. All the tabs but the one on the active page is having problems. The solution i came up with is that i'm waiting for the user to click the tab and then generate the graph's html. Like that there's no problem with the graph not knowing dimensions. I'll paste the code altough i'm using angular but i'm sure you guys can do this in jquery or something.:

 <div tabset>
         <div tab heading="Bar Chart">
                  <barchart ng-model='data' style="width:600px; height:300px" ></barchart>
           <div tab heading="Line chart" ng-click="secondTab = true">
                <linechart ng-model='data' style="width:600px; height:300px" ng-if="secondTab">                  </linechart>

Also it could help that issue #1014. Where the legend isnot being aligned correctly when using modals or hidden code. I was experiencing the same thing on chrome and this fixed it.

As described in that other issue, there is very little that we can do about this; we need to know the width of its placeholder, and it's up to users to call $.plot when that value is available.

Now that I look at it again, this issue is clearly a duplicate of that other one. It's older, but I'll close it as the duplicate because the other issue has a more relevant discussion.
