Color graphs

Hello there!

Today let’s talk about a quick fix while colorizing a graph. When you try to specify the colors of the bars in a horizontal bar graph, for example, it doesn’t change to those selected colors.

Let reproduce to problem.

1- Create a new report with Year and Cost;

2- Create a document using this report as dataset and create a Vertical Bar Graph;

3- Change the color mode to “Color by Categories“;

4- Change the color of the graph to Apex;

5- Run your document and you will see that your graph didn’t get those selected colors;

So, to make it works, you have to:

1- Change the color mode to “Color By Series“;

2- Edit your graph in Desktop/Developer and choose “Set Series by Row“;

Now when you run your document, you will see that it got the selected colors.

Conditional color for graphs

Hello there!

Sometimes we want to display a conditional color for a specific bar, for example, in a graph.

As you can see in the example below, we have 3 bars and all of them are blue:

Now, if you want to change the color for only 2010 bar to green:

To do that, you just have to:

1. Create an Horizontal Bar graph with Year and Revenue.

Go to Design view in Web and create a threshold in the desired metric using “Advanced Thresholds Editor…” button;

2. Create a new threshold with Year = 2010 and apply it to the graph, just like the image below:

3. Edit the cell formatting (pic6) of the threshold and apply a green color to the fill option:

4. Click on the Ok button twice.

5. Execute your dashboard!

 

That’s it.

 

Hope it helps.

God bless you!
