Combining Two Types of Visualizations in a Widget

In chart widgets (such as Line Charts, Area Charts, Column Charts and Bar Charts), you can represent one or more selected field(s) using a different visualization than the visualization of the original widget.

For example, the following example shows a Line Chart in which the Total Revenue is still represented as a Line Chart (the default), but the Total Quantity is represented as a Column Chart.

To select a different visualization for a field in the widget:

  1. In the Widget Designer, in the Values area, add all the fields you want to represent (you need at least two fields in the Values area).
  2. Right-click the field that you want to change.
  3. Select Series Type from the menu. A menu of alternative visualization types is displayed.
  4. Select the visualization to use for this field only.

Tip: If necessary, drag the field up or down in the Widget Designer to have a visualization brought to back or front.

Note: The chart keeps the same visualization type as was originally created. The Design panel still displays only the design options of the widget’s original visualization type.
