Use the Graph binding dialog to map data from an ADF data control onto the DVT Graph. The following information is available to help you with this process:
The Graph binding is a data-mapping layer between the ADF Graph data visualization component and an ADF data control. To set up this mapping, the Graph binding dialog is used. This document shows how to use the Graph binding dialog to configure the data for different Graph types.
Graph types, such as bar, pie, scatter, etc. have different data requirements. The Graph binding dialog has been designed to allow for a wide range of mappings between the data as sourced from a data control and all of the various Graph type specific data models.
The Graph binding dialog is comprised of the following elements:
The basic steps used to fill out this dialog are:
1. Specify the numeric facts or metrics you want to graph in the “Data Points” section of the dialog.
2. Specify the data attributes to show on the axis or legend of the graph in the “Group By” section of the dialog.
3. Optionally, specify additional data categories over which the numeric data points will be categorized in the “Data Points” section of the dialog.
4. Use the Preview tab to see what the Graph will look like when bound to the data as specified in steps 1-3 above.
Refer to the following examples for details on how to fill out the Graph binding dialog for the various types of Graphs:
|Simple Graph Types|
|Bar, Line, Area||Example 1: Setting up Bar, Line, & Area Graphs|
|Combo||Example 2: Setting up Combo Graphs|
|Pie||Example 3: Setting up Pie Graphs <to be written>|
|Complex Graph Types|
|Bubble||Example 4: Setting up Bubble Graphs|
|Scatter||Example 5: Setting up Scatter Graphs|
|Stock||Example 6: Setting up Stock Graphs|
Bar Graphs, Line Graphs, and Area Graphs all have similar data models and are configured using the Graph binding dialog the same way.
