Chart Advanced Features: Spark Column

The following sections provide a list of available advanced attributes available for controlling and customizing Spark Column chart 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/hide data labels, data values. You can also set chart limits and extended properties.

AttributeTypeValueDescription
formatNumberTrue/False0/1This configuration determines whether the numbers displayed on the chart will be formatted using commas, e.g., 40,000 if ‘formatNumber’: ‘1’; and 40000 if ‘formatNumber’: ‘0’;
numberPrefixTextAnyUsing 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.
numberSuffixTextAnyUsing 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.

Chart Paddings & 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. It’s 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.

Trend-lines

Trend-lines are horizontal lines that aid in interpretation of data with respect to some pre-determined value. For example, if you are plotting the sales data for the current year, you might want to show the previous year’s average monthly sales as a trend indicator for ease of comparison. The `lines` object, child of the `trendlines` object is used to add trend-lines to a chart. Although the `line` object has to be defined within the `trendlines` object, the latter cannot be used to collectively customize trend-lines, because it does not have any attributes of its own. The attributes of the `lines` object, child of the `trendlines` object, are used to create and customize trend-lines for charts.

AttributeTypeValueDescription
alphaNumberAnyAlpha of the trend line.
colorColorHex Color CodeColor of the trend line and its associated text
dashedTrue/False0/1Whether the trendline should be rendered as dashed lines.

Default value: 0 (trendline rendered using straight lines)

dashLenNumberIn pixelsSets the length of each dash when trendline is rendered as dashed lines.
dashGapNumberIn pixelsSets the gap between consecutive dashes when trendline is rendered as dashed lines.
endValueNumberAnyThe ending y-axis value for the trendline. Say, if you want to plot a slanted trendline from value 102 to 109, the `endValue` will be 109. If you do not specify a value for `endValue`, it will automatically assume the same value as `startValue`.
isTrendZoneTrue/False0/1Whether the trend will be displayed as a line or a zone (fill-colored rectangle).
showOnTopTrue/False0/1By default, the trendline/trendzone appears below the dataplots. This attribute allows you to display the trendline/trendzone on top of the dataplots.
startValueNumberAnyThe starting value for the trendline. Say, if you want to plot a slanted trendline from value 102 to 109, the `startValue` will be 102.
thicknessNumberIn pixelsIf you’ve opted to show the trend as a line, this attribute lets you define the thickness of trend line.

Trend-lines (Chart level attributes)

Trend-lines are horizontal lines that aid in interpretation of data with respect to some pre-determined value. For example, if you are plotting the sales data for the current year, you might want to show the previous year’s average monthly sales as a trend indicator for ease of comparison. Cosmetics for all the trend-lines rendered can be attained using this set of attributes. Although there are set of attributes of the `line object`, used to create and customize trend-lines, these set of attributes effect all the trend-lines rendered in your chart.

AttributeTypeValueDescription
trendlineColorColorHex Color CodeSets color of all the trend lines and its associated text in the chart.
trendlineThicknessNumberIn PixelsIf you’ve opted to show the trend as a line, this attribute lets you define the thickness of all the trend lines in your chart.
trendlineAlphaNumber0 – 100Sets transparency for all the trend lines in your charts.
trendLineToolTextTextAnySets the tooltip text of the trend-line. It accepts macros, plain text, and HTML tags, as string.
showTrendlinesOnTopTrue/False0/1Whether all the trend line/zone will be displayed over data plots or under them.
