Separating Groups?
« on: October 12, 2011, 06:20:45 PM »
On charts with many groups (15) is there any way to have a separator or some way to better distinguish between values that are associated with a particular group? In the example below (which will be filled with more data soon), it is hard to know which name is associated with which bar.

[easychart type="horizbar" height="600" width="550" title="Council Candidate 'Likes'" groupnames="Wk 1, Wk 2, Wk 3, Wk 4, Wk 5, Wk 6, Wk 7" valuenames="Eric Anderson, Phil Audet, Balwinder Biring, Susan Chapelle, Nate Dolha, Uffe Hansen, Patricia Heintzman, Brad Hodge, Peter Kent, Douglas Neville, Ted Prior, Brian Raiser, Doug Race, Ron Sander, Rob Weys" group1values="0,0,0,71,9,0,14,30,14,0,20,0,7,37,0" group2values="0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0" group3values="0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0" group4values="0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0" group5values="0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0" group6values="0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0" group7values="0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0"]

I see what you are saying.  You can try the 2.0 beta (see link stickied on this forum).  Not only can you keep your data in a .csv file, but users can hover over certain items and their associations become highlighted.  It escapes me at the moment if you can hover over the value names

Ill look at some possible things in 2.0

Thanks kindly. Installed but gives an error and I checked the zip, there is no "easy-chart-builder-settings.php" anywhere?

I went back, created a backup of the plugin and then copied over the new (beta) easy-chart-builder.php file. Only one of my previous charts kept working, the others did not and only displayed the button for show/hide data. Had to revert back to the previous version.

It depends on the chart type... not all are yet supported.  Horizbar though should have worked.  Ill try it with the data you posted.
