R shiny interactive graph app - Labels error

shiny

#1

Hi Folks,

I have written the code below with the aim of creating an r shiny app that downloads a file and creates an interactive graphs of 15 currencies for which the user an select the currency to view. They can also adjust the date range. The data can be successfully downloaded and the columns changed from factors to numeric. Nas have also been changed from String values to NAs that r studio recognises (I think).

I am new to r shiny and unfortunately my code does not run. Could anyone suggest any adjustments to make, please?

# Load data
#data is in dataframe2

# Define UI

                sidebarLayout(
                  sidebarPanel(
                    fileInput('dataframe2'),

shinyApp(ui = ui, server = server)

Step 1:

Change

mainPanel(plotOutput(outputId="lineplot,width="100px",height="3000px"))
   

to

mainPanel(plotOutput(outputId="lineplot",width="100px",height="3000px"))
   

You need to close your quotes!
