We continue our series of articles about the new capabilities of Stimulsoft reporting tools that appeared in the version of our products 2021.3. In this article, you will know about one important innovation. This functionality allows you to specify several views for the Chart element on a dashboard.

A little problem and a great solution

Our users used to face the problem of the lack of place for data on a dashboard. Due to this, they had to reduce the size of charts and other components. One of the solutions to this problem was to combine several charts into one.

Several charts in one

This functionality solves at least two issues:
  • make the use of charts more comfortable;
  • visualize data on a dashboard in different views.
«Now you can specify up to five views on the Chart element. Each view is a separate type of chart with its data fields. It allows you to display various charts within the same component».You may set this functionality in the editor of the Chart element on the panel of additional parameters. A user can select the required data for the chart and set the used type of data visualization parameters. At the same time, the chart style will be applied to all views of this component.



The main advantage of this new feature is the ability to switch views in the viewer with the help of controls, which, for example, allows you to increase the space on a dashboard to accommodate more components.
We hope this article will help you understand the new capabilities of dashboard creation. In addition to this, you will be able to visualize and analyze data more efficiently. If you have any questions, contact us – we will be glad to help you.
