Is the top limit 500? I have put 1000 but it only shows 500. Emijrp 21:36, 10 February 2012 (CET)

Yes and no, see here. This value may be changed by the siteadministrator. Cheers --[[kgh]] 22:16, 10 February 2012 (CET)

Math Results Format

I see there is a format for sum and product. Is there one for difference and divide?

No, perhaps some parser functions will do the trick for you.

[[kgh]] (talk)18:17, 20 December 2012

I don't even see how that would work... if you have four values, would a "difference" format give you A - B - C - D?

Sum converting to bar chart

I'm trying to figure out how to get the jqplotchart to display a simple bar chart based on a "sum" from a property.

I would appreciate it if anyone has a link to examples of how this could be done.

Thanks in advance

If you were trying to do "count" instead, that would be easy to do, using the "distribution" parameter. Doing a "sum" is harder... does each grouping of values correspond to a page? If so, maybe the best solution is to have each of those pages store its own sum, using a combination of #set and #ask; and then query on all of those semantically-stored sums.

See [1], since SMW 1.9/SRF 1.9 parameter |aggregation=property or |aggregation=subject should do the trick.

Ooh, I didn't know about that! It sounds great... does it always just do a "sum"?

Yaron Koren (talk)15:38, 10 December 2013

Thank you. Looks like the Aggregation parameter will do what I want. Very slick!

One more reason to stop procrastinating about upgrading from SMW 1.8/SRF 1.8

format count seems to also count deleted pages


Returned 501 when the actual number of forms was 480

I've created a bug about that:

Heiya Yury, thank you for reporting this bug. I am sorry to have fiddled around with you bug report. :( I will stop working on such things today. Cheers
