Drilldown Report Pattern

Interface patterns give you an opportunity to explore different interface designs. Be sure to check out How to Adapt a Pattern for Your Application.

Goal

The drilldown report pattern is a graphically rich, multi-part interface that allows users to drill into particular chart bars for more details. This page explains how you can use this pattern in your interface, and walks through the design structure in detail.

The drilldown report pattern is a graphically rich, multi-part interface that allows users to drill into particular chart bars for more details. Click on any series in the charts to have that chart with more details about that data point. This is a more elaborate version of the In-Place Drilldown pattern.

This pattern will not behave properly until you've replaced the limited, sample data with your own.

Design Structure

The main components in this pattern charts and Read-Only Grids that are alternately visible.

Pattern Expression

This pattern introduces a 404-line expression to the interface.

[Line 125-193] First Column Chart

Since chart series are arrays of values that map to the indices of the chart categories, nested looping is common, the first loop for the data values, and the second loop through the categories so each column contains only the data for that category. In this case, line 138, the forEach() function loops through all unique account status, and a sub-loop starting on line 147 then loops through each category (each account name), getting the corresponding value with the intersection() function. The intersection function is a popular tool for working with charts.

[Line 289-404] Second Column Chart & Grid

This column is similarly configured to the first, except the chart, which is only showing one dimension of data; in this case, a list of cases open more than five days (starting line 294). The single series then only needs to loop through that list to generate the links (starting line 302).
