A chart is a graphical representation that helps a report reader observe data changes over periods, compare different data groups or parts of a whole, determine relationships between variables, etc.
In ActiveReportsJS, you can use the following chart types to design such data visualizations:
A chart consists of multiple optional parts whose composition and configuration determine chart appearance in the report output. The following diagram depicts typical chart anatomy.
You can add a
Chart into a report by either double-click on the corresponding item in the toolbox or drag-and-drop it to a report page area. We recommend using the report explorer to configure various chart parts, such as plot, axes, or legend. When you select a corresponding node in the explorer, its configuration becomes available in the Properties panel for modification.
If you click the root node of a chart report item, f.e.
Chart1, the properties panel loads the general chart configuration. It exposes the Base Report Item properties, Common Style Properties, all the Data Region properties and the following specific properties
Plotsis the collection of chart plots.
Paletteis the pre-defined or custom collection of colors that plots use to paint shapes
Custom Palette Colorsis the use-defined colors collection for the
Footer items allow you to add a text that appears above and below the containing chart's plot area. Header and footer configuration exposes Common Style Properties, a subset of Text Properties, and the following specific properties.
Captionis the String Expression that determines the text to display in the header or footer
HeightThe Number in the percentage of the containing chart's height sets the Header or Footer height.
