The result format jqplotseries, enables a set of numerical data to be displayed as a chart series using the jqPlot Javascript library.

The ['group'] (property, subject) parameter is used as indicator to distinguish between different sets of data within the same result set.

jqplotseries is an experimental printer supporting different chart layouts such as bar, line, stacked bar/line, and bubble charts.

Parameter options[edit]

  • chartlegend ( 'none', 'nw','n', 'ne', 'e', 'se', 's', 'sw', 'w' )
  • charttype( 'bar', 'line', 'donut', 'bubble', 'scatter' )
  • colorscheme ( see $srfgColorScheme)
  • datalabels ( 'none', 'value', 'label', 'percent' )
  • direction ( 'horizontal', 'vertical' )
  • group ( 'property' , 'subject' )
  • grouplabel ( 'property' , 'subject' )
  • startangle ( '10', etc. ) some number between 0 and 359 for charttype donut
  • theme ( 'vector', 'simple' )

How to group data sets[edit]

Depending of its source (page as subject, or property as subject marker), data can be grouped either as "property" or "subject" with some chart types require a certain order of how data are presented as rows/columns.

How to influence display and styling[edit]

The height and width parameter are responsible for specifying a charts dimension while the class parameter can be used to adjust its position within page (float right, float left etc. see some examples here)

Another possibility to influence the display is to use the parameter "tableview" showing a chart and its corresponding datatable next to each other using a tabs ui (see here).


Bubble chart[edit]

The bubble chart is expecting data in a pre-defined order with properties representing a specific container class of content. Each data row is expected to be defined by four columns including a label (string type), x value (number type), y value (number type), and radius value (number type).

Data model[edit]

Column 0 Column 1 Column 2 Column 3
Purpose Label X value Y value Radius
Data Type string number number number
Role data data data data

Scatter plot[edit]

The scatter plot requires that x-axis values are of type string therefore a data set declaration should include [x as (string), x as(number), y(number), y2 ... ). A regression (trendline) will be generated for available data sets.

Data model[edit]

Column 0 Column 1 ... Column N
Purpose Data point X values Series 1 Y values ... Series N Y values
Data Type number number ... number
Role data data ... data
