Chart Elements

In ActiveReportsJS Designer, Chart data region comprises of several chart elements that can be formatted to generate customized 2-D charts. The following image illustrates the elements that make up the Chart data region:

  • Axis Label: A label along an axis that lets you label the units being shown.

  • Axis Title: The axis title allows you to provide a title for the information being shown on the axis.

  • Chart Title: The chart title serves as the title for the chart.

  • Grid Line: Grid lines can occur on horizontal and vertical axes and normally correlate to the major or minor tick marks for the axes.

  • Legend: The legend serves as a key to the specific colors or patterns being used to show series values in the chart. To display legends for each plot on a chart, use VALUESNAME as the color field encoding.

  • Major Tick: Major tick marks are on horizontal and vertical axes and normally correlate to the major gridlines for the axes.

  • Minor Tick: Minor tick marks are on horizontal and vertical axes and normally correlate to the minor gridlines for the axes.

  • Plot area: The Plot Area contains data plotted against X-axis and Y-axis.

Encodings

Encodings convert the data into visual elements. They define how each field from a dataset is visualized.

  • Category Field: Category mapping in Category Fields groups the dataset into multiple categories for each unique value.

  • Data Fields: The values mapping in Data Fields specifies which fields should be plotted along the Y-axis.

  • Details: The detail mapping slices the data into sub-divisions that can be clustered or stacked next to each other in plot.

  • Color: The color mapping determines which field should be used to determine color assignations for the plot and legend.

  • Shape: The shape mapping determines which field should be used to determine shape assignations for the plot and legend.

  • Size: The size mapping determines which field to apply a continuous size-based scale to for the plot and legend.
