Chart onto the WordPress dashboard

We are occasionally asked how to insert a chart onto the WordPress dashboard. For developers here is some example code (not guaranteed to work, and not supported by our help desk). This requires GFChart v1.4.0 or later.

function br_gfcdash(){
  // Add a widget to the dashboard  
  function gfcbr_add_dashboard_widgets() {
        'gfchart_dashboard_widget',        // Widget slug.
	 'GFChart',         		   // Title.
	 'gfcbr_dashboard_widget_function' // Display function.
    add_action( 'wp_dashboard_setup', 'gfcbr_add_dashboard_widgets' );
        // Output the contents of dashboard widget
	function gfcbr_dashboard_widget_function() {
	    // Display whatever it is you want to show.
	    echo do_shortcode('');
            // Note: replace 1643 with your own id
