    High Low Close Chart
    In This Topic

    A High Low Close chart encodes the price points using lines with a marker. The marker stands for the closing value. Also, the high and low values are indicated via the upper and the lower ends of the line. For example, the High-Low-Close plot type can be used to depict the stock price movement for a virtual company.

    Design

    BarSettings

    The BarSettings specifies the bar-style settings.

    Encodings

    Category Encoding 

    The Category Encoding of an plot is a set of properties that determine the period over which the plot generates connected data points representing those above Data Values. The Category encoding includes the following properties.

    Values

    The Values property is the collection and takes the field as a category.

    SortingField

    The SortingField defines the order in which the categories are displayed. It takes the default same as the Values field, but you can also specify another field to sort the categories.

    SortDirection

    The SortDirection defines the ascending or descending order in which the categories should be sorted.

    SortingAggregate

    The SortingAggregate property specifies the aggregate to use for sorting the categories. 

    Values Encoding

    The Values encoding specifies the data values, and represents the collection of items and each item includes the following properties.

    Type

    The Type property provides 'Simple' and 'Complex' options to choose from. However, for charts, 'Simple' is acceptable.

    Value

    The Value property is the collection and usually takes a bound field. However, the charts take the first item from the collection.

    Aggregate

    To show aggregated values such as Average, Count, and Sum instead of individual values, specify an Aggregate function.

    Text Encoding

    The Text Encoding provides support of any dataset field in chart labels and tooltips and allows displaying additional info on the chart. When two text encodings are added, they are displayed by default with the ";" delimiter. A text encoding includes the following properties:

    Aggregate

    Aggregates the value of the Text expression.

    Target

    Specifies whether this text is for a Label or a Tooltip Label. The label format is controlled with the chart's Labels > Template property or Tooltip Template property.

    The Template property can use both the predefined values and the added text encoding fields, for example:

    Count:{Text0}
    Sum:{valueField.value}

    Template Key

    A unique key, used in the chart plot's Labels > Template and Tooltip Template to access the text encoding value.

    Value

    A field, constant or expression to be displayed.
