Notes

  • The order of items in the Categories array determines the display order of categories on the chart with the left-most item in the array appearing on the far left of the x-axis.
  • For each null or empty item in the array passed to Categories, [Category #] displays on the x-axis with # as the index number in the Categories array of the null or empty item. For example, [Category 1].
  • The index of each item in the Categories array must match with the index of its Series data value. You can retrieve a dictionary from the data field of a queryrecord() function result, and then use a!chartSeries() to create the Chart Series array.
  • A single Series item produces a single line with line points for each Categories item. Multiple Series items produce multiple lines with one line for each series label item displayed in a distinct color and line points for each Categories item with a different data marker shape (for example, square, circle, diamond) for each line.
  • If a series data value is greater than the Y-Axis Max value or less than the Y-Axis Min value, the line continues off the chart, but the line point does not display.
  • If the Series argument has a non-null label value paired with a 0, null, or empty data value, the data value still displays in the legend.
  • If the Series argument has a null or empty label value paired with a non-null data value, the label value displays as [Series #] with # as the index number of the data value. For example, [Series 1].
  • If data values are small and less than a whole number, Appian recommends settings allowDecimalAxisLabels to true.
