Overview

Similar to charts, sparklines provide a way to visualize your spreadsheet data at the cell level, such as trends in a series of values, seasonal increases or decreases, or economic cycles. Sparklines include Cascade, BoxPlot, Bullet, HBar, VBar, Pareto, Pie, Area, Scatter, Spread, Stacked, Vari, Compatible, SparklineEx, Month, Year, and custom sparklines. Excel sparklines can also be imported.

To create a sparkline, use the setSparkline method to set the sparkline for a cell. You can use the getSparkline method to get the sparkline. For example: There are three types of sparklines. The SparklineType enumeration represents the sparkline type. line column winloss You can use all three sparklines above in Excel. But for the other sparklines, such as Compatible sparkline, are not supported in Excel unless you get an add-in extension which provides that support. If you want to remove the sparkline, use the removeSparkline method to remove the sparkline for the specified cell. For example: You also can use formula to create a sparkline, please see Compatible for details.
