Chart Advanced Features: Radar

The following sections provide a list of available advanced attributes available for controlling and customizing Radar elements.

Note

This article contains documentation for advanced attributes which are third-party customizations that must be manually entered into the chart wizard. These articles were converted directly from the documentation provided by this third-party source. Not every attribute listed may be supported in Exago BI as some unexpected conflicts may occur in their integration within the application.

Functional Attributes

These attributes let you control a variety of functional elements on the chart. For example, you can opt to show or hide data labels, data values. You can also set chart limits and extended properties.

AttributeTypeValueDescription
animationTrue/False0/1This attribute lets you set the configuration whether the chart should appear in an animated fashion. If you do not want to animate any part of the chart, set this as 0.
animationDurationNumberIn secondsThis attribute sets the animation duration of the chart. `animationDuration` attribute is applicable only if animation of the chart is enabled.
Default value: 1 sec
paletteNumber1-5Each chart has 5 pre-defined color palettes which you can choose from. Each palette renders the chart in a different color theme.
paletteColorsTextList of hex color codes separated by commaWhile the `palette` attribute allows to select a palette theme that applies to chart background, canvas, font and tool-tips, it does not change the colors of data items (that is, column, line, pie etc.). Using `paletteColors` attribute, you can specify your custom list of hex colors for the data items. The list of colors have to be separated by comma. For example, `”paletteColors”: “#FF0000, #0372AB, #FF5904…”`. The chart will cycle through the list of specified colors and then render the data plot accordingly. To use the same set of colors throughout all your charts in a web application, you can store the list of palette colors in your application globally and then provide the same in each chart JSON.
showLabelsTrue/False0/1It sets the configuration whether the x-axis labels will be displayed or not.
showValuesTrue/False0/1Sets the configuration whether data values would be displayed along with the data plot on chart.
showLimitsTrue/False0/1Whether to show chart limit values. If not specified `showYAxisValues` overrides this attribute.
showDivLineValuesTrue/False0/1Whether to show div line values. If not specified `showYAxisValues` overrides this attribute.
labelStepNumber1 or aboveBy default, all the labels are displayed on the chart. However, if you’ve a set of streaming data (like name of months or days of week), you can opt to show every n-th label for better clarity. This attribute just lets you do so. When a value greater than 1 (n) is set to this attribute, the first label from left and every label at the n-th position from left will be displayed. e.g., a chart showing data for 12 months and set with `labelStep: 3` will show labels for January, April, July, and October. The rest of the labels will be skipped.
adjustDivTrue/False0/1The chart automatically tries to adjust divisional lines and limit values based on the data provided. However, if you want to set your explicit lower and upper limit values and number of divisional lines, first set this attribute to false. That would disable automatic adjustment of divisional lines.
showPrintMenuItemTrue/False0/1When you right click on the chart it shows a context menu. This attribute allows you to show or hide the “Print” option in the context menu.
unescapeLinksTrue/False0/1Internally the chart decodes a Url that you set as link. Before invoking the link it again encodes the Url. If you are passing multilingual characters via a Url or do not want this decode-encode mechanism to be handled by chart you can set,`unescapeLinks=’0’`.
showZeroPlaneValueTrue/False0/1Allows you to show or hide the value of the zero plane.
clickURLTextAnyThe entire chart can now act as a hotspot. Use this URL to define the hotspot link for the chart. The link can be specified in Exago Link Format.
clickURLOverridesPlotLinksTrue/False0/1Sets whether the `clickURL` attribute (that sets a link to which the user is directed when the chart is clicked) overrides the `link` attribute (that sets a link to which the user is directed when a data plot is clicked).
Default value: 0 (`clickURL` does not override `link`)
radarRadiusNumberIn PixelsIf you want to explicitly specify a radius for the radar chart, use this attribute. Otherwise, the chart will automatically calculate the best-fit radius.
setAdaptiveYMinTrue/False0/1This attribute lets you set whether the y-axis lower limit would be 0 (in case of all positive values on chart) or should the y-axis lower limit adapt itself to a different figure based on values provided to the chart.
hasRTLTextNumberAnyThis attribute, when set to `1`, indicates to the chart that the text (rendered on the chart) may contain RTL characters and the textual display has to be managed accordingly.
plotHighlightEffectTextAnyThis attribute lets you enable/disable the highlight effect, in the form of a `fadeout`, for the data plots corresponding to a legend item. When this attribute is enabled and the mouse pointer is hovered over a legend item label, plots belonging to the other data series fadeout, by reducing their opacity.
The fadeout effect can be customized by specifying the fadeout color and opacity using the `color` and `alpha` attributes. Eg. `fadeout|color=#ff0000, alpha=60`
themeText‘fusion’, ‘gammel’, ‘candy’, ‘ocean’, ‘zune’, ‘carbon’, ‘umber’This attribute changes the theme of the chart. There are 7 types of themes which have been made according to the different color combinations.

Chart Axis Configuration Attributes

Using these attributes, you can set and configure x-axis labels, y-axis values and set chart cosmetics for the axis like color, alpha, etc.

AttributeTypeValueDescription
showYAxisValuesTrue/False0/1The y-axis of the chart is divided into vertical sections using div (divisional) lines. Each div line assumes a value based on its position. Using this attribute you can set whether to show those div line (y-axis) values or not. The values of `showLimits` and `showDivLineValues`, if specified explicitly, overrides the value of this attribute.
yAxisValuesStepNumber1 or aboveBy default, all div lines show their values. However, you can opt to display every x(th) div line value using this attribute.

Anchors

On radar charts, anchors (or marker points) are polygons which appear at the joint of two consecutive line or area points. These are indicators to show the position of data points. The anchors handle tool tips and links for the data points. So, if you opt to not render anchors on a chart, the tool tips and links won’t function. You can, however, hide them by setting alpha to 0 and still enable tool tips and links. You can customize all the facets of anchors using the properties below.

AttributeTypeValueDescription

alignLegendWithCanvasTrue/False0/1This attribute if set to `0`, the legend box will be center aligned with respect to the entire width of the chart only if the total width of the legend box is more than the canvas width. By default, the legend box is center aligned with respect to the canvas width and it remains the same if the width of the legend box is less than the canvas width.

Number Formatting

Exago offers you a lot of options to format your numbers on the chart. Using the attributes below, you can control a myriad of options like: Formatting of commas and decimals Number prefixes and suffixes Decimal places to which the numbers would round to Scaling of numbers based on a user defined scale Custom number input formats

AttributeTypeValueDescription
formatNumberTrue/False0/1This configuration determines whether the numbers displayed on the chart will be formatted using commas, for example, 40,000 if ‘formatNumber’: ‘1’; and 40000 if ‘formatNumber’: ‘0’;.
formatNumberScaleTrue/False0/1Configuration whether to add K (thousands) and M (millions) to a number after truncating and rounding it – for example, if `formatNumberScale` is set to 1, 1043 would become 1.04K (with decimals set to 2 places). Same with numbers in millions – an M will be added at the end.
defaultNumberScaleTextAnyThe default unit of the numbers that you’re providing to the chart.
numberScaleUnitTextAnyUnit of each block of the scale.
numberScaleValueTextAnyRange of the various blocks that constitute the scale.
forceNumberScaleTrue/False0/1If a data value is less than the lowest given number is the number scale, this attribute forces the lower value of the `numberScaleUnit` to be applied to that data value. This attribute works only when `“formatNumberScale”: “1”` and the `defaultNumberScale` attribute is not defined.
For example, if `“numberScaleUnit”: “K, M”`, `“numberScaleValue”: “1000, 1000”`, and `“forceNumberScale”: “1”`, a data value of `400` will be rendered as `0.40K`.
scaleRecursivelyTrue/False0/1Whether recursive scaling should be applied.
maxScaleRecursionNumberAnyHow many recursions to complete during recursive scaling? -1 completes the entire set of recursion.
scaleSeparatorTextAnyWhat character to use to separate the scales that are generated after recursion?
numberPrefixTextCharacterUsing this attribute, you could add prefix to all the numbers visible on the graph. For example, to represent all dollars figure on the chart, you could specify this attribute to $ to show like $40000, $50000.
numberSuffixTextCharacterUsing this attribute, you could add suffix to all the numbers visible on the graph. For example, to represent all figures quantified as per annum on the chart, you could specify this attribute to ‘/a’ to show like 40000/a, 50000/a.
decimalSeparatorTextCharacterThis attribute helps you specify the character to be used as the decimal separator in a number.
thousandSeparatorTextCharacterThis attribute helps you specify the character to be used as the thousands separator in a number.
thousandSeparatorPositionNumber This option helps you specify the position of the thousand separator.
inDecimalSeparatorTextCharacterIn some countries, commas are used as decimal separators and dots as thousand separators. In XML, if you specify such values, it will give an error while converting to number. So, the chart accepts the input decimal and thousand separator from user, so that it can convert it accordingly into the required format. This attribute lets you input the decimal separator.
inThousandSeparatorTextCharacterIn some countries, commas are used as decimal separators and dots as thousand separators. In XML, if you specify such values, it will give an error while converting to number. So, the chart accepts the input decimal and thousand separator from user, so that it can convert it accordingly into the required format. This attribute lets you input the thousand separator.
decimalsNumber0-10Number of decimal places to which all numbers on the chart would be rounded to.
forceDecimalsTrue/False0/1Whether to add 0 padding at the end of decimal numbers. For example, if you set decimals as 2 and a number is 23.4. If `forceDecimals` is set to 1, the number will automatically be converted to 23.40 (note the extra 0 at the end).

Font Properties

Using the attributes below, you can define the generic font properties for all the text on the chart. These attributes allow you a high level control over font properties. If you intend to specify font properties for individual chart elements (like Caption, sub-caption etc.), you need to use the Styles feature of Exago. Using Styles, you can also specify advanced font properties like Bold, Italics, HTML Mode etc.

AttributeTypeValueDescription

exportFormatsTextAnyLets you configure what output formats to allow for export of chart, in the export context menu, and also customize the label for each menu item. The attribute value should be a pipe (|) delimited separated key-value pair. Example: `exportFormats: ‘PNG=Export as High Quality Image|JPG|PDF=Export as PDF File’`
exportModeTextAnyThis attributes sets the modes of export. To enable client-side exporting, set this attribute to `client`.

Default value: auto.

Note: Starting v3.12.1, the `exportMode` attribute replaces the `exportAtClientSide` attribute. However, you don’t need to make any changes to the existing setup because, the Exago library comes with the proper mapping already provided.

anchorHoverAnimationTrue/False0/1Anchors get animated when the normal radius and the hover radius are different. To disable this effect you can set anchorHoverAnimation = `0`.
Default value: `1`

Chart Padding & Margins

The following attributes help you control chart margins and paddings. Exago allows you manually customize the padding of various elements on the chart to allow advanced manipulation and control over chart visualization. Padding in Exago is always defined in pixels, unless the attribute itself suggests some other scale (like `plotSpacePercent`, which configures the spacing using percentage values). You can also define the chart margins. Chart Margins refer to the empty space left on the top, bottom, left and right of the chart. That means, Exago would not plot anything in that space. It is not necessary for you to specify any padding/margin values. Exago automatically assumes the best values for the same, if you do not specify the same.

AttributeTypeValueDescription
captionPaddingNumberIn PixelsThis attribute lets you control the space (in pixels) between the sub-caption and top of the chart canvas. If the sub-caption is not defined, it controls the space between caption and top of chart canvas. If neither caption, nor sub-caption is defined, this padding does not come into play.
labelPaddingNumberIn PixelsThis attribute sets the vertical space between the labels and canvas bottom edge. If you want more space between the canvas and the x-axis labels, you can use this attribute to control it.
chartLeftMarginNumberIn PixelsAmount of empty space that you want to put on the left side of your chart. Nothing is rendered in this space.
chartRightMarginNumberIn PixelsAmount of empty space that you want to put on the right side of your chart. Nothing is rendered in this space.
chartTopMarginNumberIn PixelsAmount of empty space that you want to put on the top of your chart. Nothing is rendered in this space.
chartBottomMarginNumberIn PixelsAmount of empty space that you want to put at the bottom of your chart. Nothing is rendered in this space.
legendPaddingNumberIn PixelsPadding of legend from right or bottom side of canvas

The categories Object

The `categories` object and the `category` object (child of the `categories` object) are used to specify x-axis labels for multi-series charts. The attributes of the `categories` object are used to set the font properties of all x-axis labels collectively.

AttributeTypeValueDescription
fontTextValid font faceLets you specify font face for the x-axis data labels.
fontColorColorHex Color CodeLets you specify font color for the x-axis data labels.
fontSizeNumberAnyLets you specify font size for the x-axis data labels.

The category Object

The attributes of the `category` object are used to define and customize individual x-axis labels for multi-series charts.

AttributeTypeValueDescription
labelTextAnyThis attribute determines the label for the data item. The label appears on the x-axis of chart.

Note: The `label` attribute replaces the `name` attribute. Previously, either one of the attributes could be used to set the label. Support for the `name` attribute has been discontinued since v3.10.0.

showLabelTrue/False0/1You can individually opt to show or hide labels of individual data items using this attribute.
toolTextTextAnyThe tooltip defined in the `category` object appears only when the mouse cursor is hovered over the data plots. However, this will not appear when the cursor is moved over the data labels (except for a situation when long labels are automatically truncated with ellipses. In this situation, if the mouse cursor is hovered over a truncated label, the tooltip will appear with the full label). In case you want to set a short label and show the full label in tooltip, define the full label using this attribute within the `category` object. The tooltip with the full label will appear only when the mouse is hovered on the dataplot.
fontTextAnySets the x-axis label font family for the text.

borderDashGapNumberIn pixelsSets the gap between two consecutive dashes when the border around x-axis label is rendered using dashed lines.

The dataset Object

Each `dataset` object contains a series of data. For example, for a monthly sales comparison chart for two successive years, the first data-set would contain the data for first year and the next one for the second year. You can provide data-set level cosmetics so that all data within that data-set will be plotted in the same color/alpha/etc. Depending on the chart type, there are a number of attributes that you can define for each `dataset` object.

AttributeTypeValueDescription
seriesNameTextAnyLets you specify the series name for a particular data-set. For example, if you are plotting a chart to indicate monthly sales analysis for 2005 and 2006, the `seriesName` for the first dataset would be 2005 and that of the second would be 2006. The `seriesName` of a data-set is shown in legend.

Using `anchorSides` attribute, you can specify the no. of sides for anchors. `Note : If the anchors are of circular shape, this attribute won’t be applied on it.`

The data Object

Attributes of the `data` object, child of the `dataset` object, are used to define the values to be plotted for individual data series. The `dataset` and `data` objects are defined for one data series as shown in the example below:


"dataset": [{
	"seriesname": "Previous Year",
	"data": [{
			"value": "10000",
		},
		{
			"value": "11500",
