The technology your company is using based on javascript, flash, html5 or WPF, or Swing, or etc.? Automation is technology dependent in many cases. – SayusiAndo Feb 5 '14 at 13:40
Javascript and I guess using third party library for showing charts like D2Charts,HighCharts – nishi2410 Feb 5 '14 at 13:44
Then you can use the tools which deal with DOM tree. Selenium, WebDriver, CodedUI, etc. I don't know all of them. I think you should do a few POCs to figure out which one is proper for your company and the cases you have to face. – SayusiAndo Feb 5 '14 at 14:02

If what you care is the visual aspect of your charts, a tool like Selenium might not be enough. You should take a look to "visual tests" tools like Sikuli, PDIFF, PhantomCSS, Huxley. And maybe you could end up using both type of tools: Selenium to navigate in your app/site and visual-tool to check that the visual aspect of your graph is correct.

I think you should try Ranorex 5.0 it's a great took to work with pie charts and bar graphs. It is based on dot net framework hence uses c# language, I am saying this because I have worked on this tool and work with bar graphs and pie charts. There are various cases in which we have to validate the tool tip on a bar graph and with the help of this tool it worked seamlessly

Have you been able to use it to validate more than just the tool tip; for example the shapes, colours, sizes of the data displayed in the graph? – vincebowdren Sep 5 '14 at 13:49
Well i have not tried it for shape but you can work with color and the size of data. With whole .net functionality at your finger tips the quality of scripts just depends upon your imagination and more over the tool support is just incredible and your queries are always herd with priority and the license cost is also minimal – user8695 Sep 5 '14 at 13:56
