What steps will reproduce the problem?

  1. Insert sample code in an ASP.NET page with a master page

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
Flot doesn't do anything, generates javascript error... looks like the
jquery.flot.js file was opened (threw a few alerts in it to test) but the
$.plot function doesn't get created properly so calls to it fail.

What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
Tested in Firefox and IE.

Please provide any additional information below.
I pasted some of the sample code into a plain HTML in my ASP.NET project
and it worked. But when used within a page that has a master page, it
fails. Played with it a bit but coudln't figure out any reason for it.

Did you remember to include jQuery before Flot? If you make the generated HTML source
available or send it to me at olau at iola.dk, I can probably tell you what's wrong.

Yep, definitely made sure to include jquery first. It's quite weird as its pretty
much exactly the same code as I had in a plain HTML page - which worked - but it
just stops working once ASP.NET renders it in a master page.

Here is a page where it won't work:

The problem is that jQuery is included twice. You have a couple of includes of
WebResource.axd?blahblah. One of those are jQuery. So when you include Flot, it
registers itself with jQuery and then jQuery is included again and overwrites the
previous registration.

Strange bug, it took me some time to debug. Hope this helps... :-)

Oh geez, I should have realized... duh! I'm so sorry. But thank you so much for
figuring that out!

No problem, I'll close the bug now. I've just started a mailing list for the project
which I can recommend in the future.
