Several users contacted us with radar type chart features requests. In order to improve radar charts, MaxiCharts introduced a new way of generating those (quite special) charts, based on the use of several fields of the input form.
This new processing implies two different parameters:
- datasets_field :
- include :
is new and is used to create datasets for the resulting radar chart. Each new value set to this field (a dropdown field for example) will add a new dataset to the final chart. In the example above, all answers to field number 1 will add a new dataset to chart.
is the usual parameter to specify included field ids in the chart report, but is used in a totally different way, as soon as the previous parameter is set: it uses labels of thoses fields to create axis for the radar chart, and values of those field ids to chart answers for a specific dataset (an answer of field set in datasets_field).
Let’s see an example chart!
[gfchartsreports color_set="d310" gf_form_id="14" datasets_field="1" include="2,3,4,5,6" type="radar" height="600px"]
