Adding a chart

Updated on December 13, 2022

Increase the readability of your application by presenting data as appealing charts. For example, in a sales application, you can include a pie chart showing the revenue of your company to enhance the process of data analysis.

    Adding a chart

  1. In Dev Studio, open the section to which you want to add a chart.
  2. If the section is based on a template, in the header of the section editor, click convert to full section editor, and then confirm the conversion.
  3. In the options pane of the section, click Data display, and then drag Chart to the place in the layout where you want to feature a chart.
  4. Customizing the chart

  5. Next to the chart, click the View properties icon.
  6. In the Cell properties dialog box, on the General tab, specify the basic settings of the chart.
    For example:

    In the Chart type list, select Column - Clustered to visualize data as vertical columns.

    In the Data source section, in the Type list, select Report definition to set a report definition as a data source for your chart.

  7. On the Axis tab, customize the appearance of the axes of your chart.
    For example: In the Y-axis section, in the Decimals list, select 2 to show two decimal places of values.

    In the Y-axis section, in the Min value and Max value fields, enter the range of values that you want to show in the chart.

  8. On the Series tab, define what data series your chart displays.
    For example: In the Selected series section, click Add series, and then define new data series to appear in your chart.
  9. On the Presentation tab, customize the appearance of the chart.
    For example: In the Column colors section, click Add new, and then specify custom value-based conditions to color your chart.

    In the Threshold lines and regions section, click Add newLine, and then specify a point on the axis to draw a horizontal reference line on the chart

  10. In the lower-right corner of the Cell properties dialog box, click Submit.
  11. In the upper-right corner of your section, click Save.
