dlg_element_properties_chart

The Graph tab of the Element Properties window displays the graph layout defined for the element. A typical graph layout consists of the Indicator and the Chart, but both can be omitted or included multiple times with a freely definable layout (see Graph Layout Window for details). The indicator item illustrates the performance of the current element in an easy and straightforward manner, whereas the chart item enables you to create clear charts and graphs depicting the evolution of particular element data over time. The toolbar below the Graph Layout section varies depending on which layout item (indicator, graph, text element, etc.) is selected. Click on an item to select it. In the case there is no item in the area that was clicked, the background is selected.

 

 

Configuring Graph Items

Items in the graph layout can be configured by double-clicking them, or right-clicking on the item and selecting the Layout Item Properties option from the pop-up menu. In addition to the generic Layout Item Properties windows, chart and indicator items have additional configuration windows available, Indicator Configuration Window and Chart Properties Window respectively. These views can be accessed via the "Indicator Properties..." and "Chart Properties..." options.
