Type of chart and associated characteristics
The type of chart defined in the "General" tab corresponds to the general type of chart.
The available options depend on the selected type of chart:
  • Pie/Donut/Semi-circular/Sunburst
    • Raised effect: Raised effect that can be given to the chart drawing. Depending on the charts, you have the ability to give a simple effect (by specifying the depth, in pixels) or a 3D effect.
      WEBDEV - Server codeAndroidPHP This option is not available.
    • Start angle: Angle used for the beginning of the first section.
    • Display the labels of categories: Used to display (or not) the category labels.
    • Size of hole (Donut and Sunburst charts only): Size of the hole displayed in the middle of the chart.
    • Display the percentages: Used to display the percentages of each section, by specifying the format used.
    • Pulling out: Used to pull out the chart sections.
  • Column/Horizontal Column
    • Raised effect: Raised effect that can be given to the chart drawing. Depending on the charts, you have the ability to give a simple effect (by specifying the depth, in pixels) or a 3D effect.
      WEBDEV - Server codeAndroidPHP This option is not available.
    • Layout: Layout of bars: grouped, stacked or in depth. You also have the ability to use cylindrical bar (but not rectangular ones).
  • Line/Area/Scatter
    • Raised effect: Raised effect that can be given to the chart drawing. Depending on the charts, you have the ability to give a simple effect (by specifying the depth, in pixels) or a 3D effect.
      WEBDEV - Server codeAndroidPHP This option is not available.
    • Smoothing: Used to smooth a chart via the "cubic splines" method.
      Android This option is not available.
    • Size of points
    • Drawing of null values: the null values can be ignored, not drawn, or they can correspond to a return to the value 0.
  • Bubble chart
    • Raised effect: Raised effect that can be given to the chart drawing. Depending on the charts, you have the ability to give a simple effect (by specifying the depth, in pixels) or a 3D effect.
      WEBDEV - Server codeAndroidPHP This option is not available.
    • Size of bubbles (in percentage)
    • Display the labels of categories: Used to display (or not) the category labels.
    • Value symbolized by: Used to specify what is represented by the series value: surface of bubble, radius of bubble or volume of bubble.
  • Surface:
    • Raised effect: Raised effect that can be given to the chart drawing. Depending on the charts, you have the ability to give a simple effect (by specifying the depth, in pixels) or a 3D effect.

    • Rotation according to X axis (degrees): Define the chart rotation.
    • Rotation according to Y axis (degrees): Define the chart rotation.
    • Rotation according to Z axis (degrees): Define the chart rotation.
    • Display a meshing on the surface: Enables or disables the mesh on a Surface chart.
    • Rotation with the mouse: Enables (or not) the ability for the user to perform a chart rotation with the mouse.
  • Radar
    • Display the gridlines: Enables (or not) the display of gridlines on the chart.
    • Display the labels of categories: Used to display (or not) the category labels.
    • Size of points: Defines the size of points.
  • Funnel
    • Raised effect: Raised effect that can be given to the chart drawing. Depending on the charts, you have the ability to give a simple effect (by specifying the depth, in pixels) or a 3D effect.
      WEBDEV - Server codeAndroidPHP This option is not available.
    • Width/Height of stem: characteristics of funnel stem.
    • Hide the first value: You have the ability to display (or not) the total value in the Funnel chart.
    • Display the labels of categories: Used to display (or not) the category labels.
    • Spacing between the sections: Spacing between the different funnel sections.
    • Size of sections: The size of sections can be:
      • Proportional to the area: The value is symbolized by the area of funnel section.
      • Proportional to the height: The value is symbolized by the height of funnel section.
  • Candlestick/Barchart/MinMax
    • Raised effect: Raised effect that can be given to the chart drawing. Depending on the charts, you have the ability to give a simple effect (by specifying the depth, in pixels) or a 3D effect.

X axis and Y axis
For the X and Y axes, you have the ability to define:
  • The axis title: This title will be displayed along the X or Y axis.
  • The mark: If the default mark is chosen, the mark will be calculated according to data. You have the ability to choose a value in the list or to enter your own value.
  • The orientation of marks: The orientation of the mark captions can be horizontal, vertical or automatic. In this last case, the orientation is defined by taking the control size and the mark length into account.
  • Minimum and maximum values of axes: Extreme values of axes. If these values correspond to "Default", they are defined from the data found in the different chart series. You can enter a value or select one of the proposed values.
  • Location of marks on the X axis in pixels: corresponds to the spacing between column charts.
    Note: This type of chart is not available in the report editor.
  • Scale of x-axis spaced according to the time: Allows you to use a time scale.
    This option operates with Date or DateTime data coming from a Table control or from a HFSQL item. This option cannot be used with a series filled by programming.
  • Format of marks on the Y axis: Display mask for the marks.
  • Scale of logarithmic ordinates

Marker and gridlines
You can use:
  • Versions 22 and later
    an orthonormal marker. The available options are as follows:
    • Not orthonormal: the X and Y axes are using different units for the marker.
    • Orthonormal (primary axis only): the X and Y axes are using the same unit for the marker.
    • Orthonormal (primary and secondary axes): the X and Y axes are using the same unit for the marker as well as the secondary axis.
    New in version 22
