grColumnAggregation (Function)
In french: grHistoAgrégation
Defines the algorithm for aggregating data in a clustered or stacked Column chart.
// Code of Radio Button control used to select the aggregation type
// Store the selected type of aggregation
let nAggregation = SWITCH (RADIO_AggregationType, grhaNone, grhaMax, grhaMin, grhaMean, grhaSum)
// Apply the aggregation
grColumnAggregation(CHART_Chart, nAggregation)
// Redraw the example
grColumnAggregation(<Chart name> , <Algorithm>)
<Chart name>: Control name or character string
Name of the chart to be used. This name corresponds to:
  • the chart name defined through programming with grCreate.
  • the name of the Chart control (in the window, page or report editor).
<Algorithm>: Integer constant
Aggregation algorithm to use:
grhaMaxAggregation according to the maximum of data.
grhaMeanAggregation according to the mean of data.
grhaMinAggregation according to the minimum of data.
grhaNoneNo aggregation.
grhaSumAggregation according to the sum of data.

When should the aggregation be used?

When displaying a Column chart, the bars may become too small to be displayed. This is the case for the charts presenting a time scale. In this case, it becomes necessary to display a bar whose minimum size is the size of a mark and aggregating the data of all potential bars found in this mark.

Non-aggregated Column chart

Column chart aggregated according to the mean

Aggregation and type of charts

  • For the charts without time scale, the aggregation is not enabled by default.
  • For the charts with time scale, the default aggregation is the sum of columns.
