Chart configuration

The Chart attributes are:

  • Path: The Chart Url to be access. An example where path is TP01 could be:

    http://localhost:1880/TP01
    
  • Tittle: The chart title

  • X Axis: The X axis label

  • Y Axis: The Y axis label

  • Payload: The chart dataset object

The chart payload attributes are:

  • channel: The channel legend
  • color: The chart color line
  • dataset: The chart dataset

The payload dataset attributes are:

  • x: x axis dataset value
  • y: y axis dataset value

Read node help to check the dataset structure for each chart. The Line Charts dataset could be multi serial graphs like this:

[{"channel": "Population",
  "color": "Blue",
  "dataset": [{
      "x": "Europe",
      "y": 741
  },
  {
      "x": "Australia",
      "y": 24
  },
  {
      "x": "Africa",
      "y": 1.2
  },
  {
      "x": "America",
      "y": 325
  },
  {
      "x": "Asia",
      "y": 4.4
  }]},
  {"channel": "Economy",
    "color": "Green",
    "dataset": [{
        "x": "Europe",
        "y": 12
    },
    {
        "x": "Australia",
        "y": 13
    },
    {
        "x": "Africa",
        "y": 3
    },
    {
        "x": "America",
        "y": 22
    },
    {
        "x": "Asia",
        "y": 18
    }]}
]                

NOTE: The new multiserial linear chart implementation is compatible with the previous one versions

The rest of the charts dataset are not multiserial graphs. An example could be like this:

{
    "channel": "Population",
    "color": "Green",
    "dataset": [
        {
            "x": "Europe",
            "y": 741
        },
        {
            "x": "Australia",
            "y": 24
        },
        {
            "x": "Africa",
            "y": 1.2
        },
        {
            "x": "America",
            "y": 325
        },
        {
            "x": "Asia",
            "y": 4.4
        }
    ]
}
